Buyer beware. Free overnight airport sleeping experience included when they cancel your flight and put you on the next available one. This occurs due to circumstances "beyond their control" and there will be no compensation for food, lodging, or inconvenience. Thanks, Swoop!

This can happen to any airline that has a low frequency of flights to the destination.


‘I am absolutely never flying Flair again,’ Elmira man says after airline cancels flight home from Mexico
Flair Airlines told passengers to wait seven days for another flight, and provided nothing for hotels or meals.

After cancelling my flight just 4 hours before morning departure due to staffing issues and not providing any same day alternative flights, I vowed never to fly with them again.

Unlike weather, staffing is entirely under the airlines control and they could afford to have redundant staff if they wanted.

Don't rely on Swoop for flights, unless you have some flexibility on which days you depart and return, and don't mind being stuck for a day or two at the airport.

i only used them once but it was a pleasurable experience aside from them nickel and diming you. i was going from Toronto to PEI so i just held out and said no to the coffee and instead of paying for carryons, my gf and i just merged all of our stuff into 1 checked bag which worked out cheaper.

it's definitely buyer beware but i want to keep trying to support Flair and Swoop (to a lesser degree, owned by WestJet) to that Low cost carriers can thrive in Canada. it would be a shame for the lost cost guys to go under and we're stuck again only with pricier options.

You can hate the airline for your lousy experience but no need to downvote a good deal. Flew once and got exactly what I paid for, will give them another chance for now.

Never used swoop as they are unable to service my needs. Used flair quite a few times and saved a lot of cash but they also service my preferred route several times a day.

If you don't have flexibility or have to adhere to a specific schedule you may want to hedge and use another airline but the expensive ones will screw you over at some point and the discount airline will probably be on time that day too.

I think the issue is the discounts are offering too many routes and don't have enough aircraft and employees to service them.

Just beware, when looking to book a one-way flight originating in the US, the fare displayed is in USD.

Do you know whether it's charged in CAD or USD?

just remember

people with good/satisfactory experiences dont usually post about it

only the ones with bad experiences go out their way to post about it

so if you think its all bad think again

this is a good deal regardless of what the general perception is

Right, and Air Canada never cancels or delays flights.
Anecdotal, but I used them once and had a great experience.
For some compensation maybe look into premium amex cards :)

This same thing happened to me with Air Canada over the holidays cancelled my connecting flight and I was forced to spend two days at the airport. The credit card deemed this a trip interruption and so they would not provide any benefits besides the cost to get to the final destination which Air Canada did provide so essentially there was no coverable costs.

Whoever saw this, stay AWAY from Swoop airline. They will move your flights randomly one month before departure date to some other dates and completely screw up your plan. You need to rebook another airline with higher prices very likely, and change your hotels, car rentals etc., which ultimately will cost you more in the end. Never book Swoop!

Upvote for the deal, because honestly a flight from Toronto to Kelowna for $78 all-in is unbelievable.

That said, everyone's already covered it - Swoop/Flair/Lynx/Jetlines all suffer from challenges with relating to their size and capacity limits and the low cost model. At least if you book with Air Canada or WestJet they have the capacity to accommodate impacted passengers with additional (or larger) aircraft, connections through hubs, additional standby crews at the airports etc (of course, when there's coast to coast weather there's no winning with anyone).

I'm tempted to just give this one a go, but I also don't think I would want to gamble knowing I could be Swoop-stranded.

Your insurance should have covered trip interruption hotel expenses if you had trip interruption or as amex words it flight delay. Wording is usually like this.

https://www.insurance.americanexpress.c ... balt-card/

Flight Delay Insurance1†
You can receive up to $500 in coverage (aggregate maximum with Baggage Delay Insurance) for necessary and reasonable accommodations, restaurant expenses and sundry items purchased within 48 hours when delayed or denied boarding for 4 hours or more and no alternate transportation is made available when you fully charge your airline ticket to your Card.

They did this to us in Vegas but gave us each a $10 food voucher, which no merchant in the airport would accept (apparently because Swoop does not reimburse lol).

Never again...will pay double next time to avoid the nightmare.

Don't recommend. They delayed my flight for 2 days, and I was only suppose to spend a day or so at the destination. Ended up only staying for 10 hours 🤣

I flew with flair right before the holidays. Smooth experience, willing to give swoop a shot
