Has anyone flown with Swoop yet? On the last two legs of my Swoop flights, I was sitting beside large people and they ended up overflowing into my seating area. They couldn't do much about it, they were just large. They weren't extremely obese which is why I thought it was odd we were so squished. Flight was full, couldn't change seats.

So my question is, are the seats a lot narrower on Swoop vs. AC/WJ?

The seats on basically all narrow body aircrafts are very similar. You can only fit 6 across on 737-800 (although a320 can be different but AC is also going forward with 737).

With 777 its a different deal as some airline have 9 across and most 10.

Right, I didn't think they were narrow enough to squeeze in a seat. But it's also believable that the airline would use narrower seats for the weight savings.

That's really not the issue. It's legroom or "pitch." There is a widely-supported bipartisan bill in the US that would set standards because being forced to not be able to stretch out or move is a health safety risk; blood clots can form, for instance. Canadians? Just like not legislating that our pilots get enough rest, unlike US and many other countries' rules (so Air Canada tries to land on top of other airplanes), we're screwed.

And I was saying that is not the worst issue because legroom is the thing that can have a direct effect on health. I'm 6' 7" so I know of what I speak.

If someone is obese, only then is width much of an issue.

But when these planes crash, who will pay for the search and recovery of the bodies? Not tax payers I hope.

Owned by westjet. We need more competition, not some fake discount brands owned by the duopolies who are trying to kill competition. No thanks!

they are backed by Westjet. Only dumping cheap seats to kill the competition - Flair Air.
if you actually want ULCCs to succeed in canada, support Flair because if they cease to exist, prices will go up again
Isn't this illegal practice under antitrust laws?

I flew with Swoop in the summer round trip from Abbotsford to Hamilton. The planes were clean, nicely refurbished. The on flight entertainment was free and streaming wifi to tablets, just like westjet. The selection of movies, tv shows and games wasn't as large as westjet, but was adequate. I rather enjoyed it for how little I paid. Just bring your own food and buy your drinks from an airport after you pass through security and you will save on that. The staff were also friendly, everything was just like westjet - just more pink and grey. I will have no problem saving $ and flying them again.

I am looking to fly the same route. Mind telling me how much you paid? Trying to see what a good deal is on this flight path.

thanks
