Just a brief note as I feel I have made some comments about some other charter airlines in the past that were not at all favourable (and deservedly so). I have to say that our transatlantic Sunwing Flight wasn’t half bad and I was expecting the worst…
A package deal to Porto, Portugal with airfare and a hotel (that served a full breakfast included) was priced so ridiculously well, my husband and I couldn’t pass it up. The down side was going to be the dreaded “charter airline” flight from Toronto to Portugal return.
Admittedly, we did upgrade to Elite status and selected our seats with an experienced eye and as early as possible for best selection, but I was pleasantly surprised by the service and the efficiency of Sunwing. Staff was pleasant, meals were prompt, (if typical airline cardboard), and the plane was clean and as comfortable as a charter flight packed to the gunnels could be.
So not exactly a ringing endorsement, but better than the experience I was expecting. So much so, I thought I’d give them a shout out. I must say I prefer flying the bigger commercial airlines, particularly to Europe, but Sunwing did a decent job.
