I seriously don't get why people like you are so miserable. First people whine about there not being any competition in Canada and passengers getting screwed over, then someone comes around and offers competition. And then come people like you and some others who
- Question the safety of this airline without providing any evidence
- Suggest that you need to pay for oxygen (I get that's part in jest)

Now let me be clear I'm no huge fan of these budget airlines nickel and diming customers but in any market they operate they always bring prices down for the competition as well. And for the savy flyers, students, people without kids, this is a great option.

Everyone should do their research and if your need to be somewhere for work, then flying in Canada in the winters is somewhat a risk and even more so with a low cost carrier. I welcome this and all other low cost carriers, hopefully one of these can become bigger and compete with the cartel that we have today.

"Travelling with young children (under 12)? Choose seats below for no charge. "

my child can choose a free seat, but both adults have to pay to select. i thought at least one adult needs to sit with child.

Ryanair proved the concept and now Canada is eager to copy it Confused Face

Last time an airline told me to pay to be seated with the kid, I told them thanks -- will be glad if someone else takes care of this sucker while we get some sleep. They then assigned us premium economy together.
"No airline staff" would ever like to deal with a cranky baby on their own. Even if that means moving people around, or upgrading you. Doesn't matter the fair class, WestJet and Air Canada by default assign you free seats (together) if you ever travel with kids.

Just flew with Lynx. Boarded on time. Arrived on time. No issues. Airplane was barebones so no magazine, entertainment or snacks. Planes were new as stated by another user.

Personal item dimensions are okay, if you're traveling with multiple people, the most economic choice is to pack all your stuff into one suitcase for check-in because it's just $67 round-trip for one check-in.

There is no promo code, just need to select flights on Tuesday/Wednesday. Then hover over the price to see the breakdown. For example:

Actual datapoint: I took the osprey farpoint 40 (sized as a standard carryon luggage) on a flight as my personal item for free with no issue. The flight was more than half full but had lots of bin space

The $67 is for one way only.

I was referring to $67 as one way for one piece of lugguage.

Anyways, it's been over half hour and I still didn't get an email confirmation from Lynx. My payment went through and I can see it on my credit card app as pending.

I called in and apparently my booking got cancelled because the payment didn't go through for some reason.

They re-did the ticket for me and asked for my payment info again. I received the confirmation email.

Under APPR regulations, kids under 12 need to be assigned a seat no more than 1 seat away (or one aisle away) from their parent in the same row. Under 5, they need to be seated right next to a parent.

Lynx Air planes are 3 seats per side. Worst case:

- your family is split up into 2 groups of 2 in different areas of the plane
- the kid(s) who are aged 5-11 are assigned with someone in a middle seat between them and their parent, or they're assigned in an aisle seat across from the parent. If that happens, it likely wouldn't be hard to convince a middle seat passenger to move to an aisle to be able to sit together

No, they didn't mean that at all. You are definitely wrong.
