Good Question,

Over the past ten years we have sworn by and against Skyservice.....and Transat.....and AC......and others. It seems to rotate over every few years as to who is better however I would have no trouble going with Skyservice.

We flew with them to Cayo Coco in 2005, no problems there. Flew with them to Antigua in January 2007. They had just changed their meals over to "hand held" fast food type things. We were served the same disgusting "quesidillas" on way there and back. A lot of people didn't eat them. I usually like airplane food, but this was something else! Who wants to eat with their hands on a plane? It's not like there are many hand-washing opportunities! Other than that no problems (except late departure due to storm)

I'm sure it can be hit and miss with any airline though! The main thing is they get you there and home safe!

Yeah...seats are crowded. Food was really bad...last trip we had a mini frozen "dinner" of fried rice with sweet & sour "chicken" balls. My husband is tall (6'4in)...he couldn't get the try down past his chest...we shared my tiny little tray.

If you can avoid them... BUT, if you can't, it will still get you to Cuba...and paradise!

Enjoy your trip!

I flew Skyservice in 07 and Transat in 08.I`d say Skyservice was a bit tighter than Transat but it wasn`t that big of a difference. Transat`s food was definately better. When it comes to service Skyservice was hands down way above Transat.We had problems both ways on the Transat flight with our pre-booked and paid for seats...Skyservice was no problem at all.The attendants on Skyservice were friendly and helpful, on Transat most (but not all) were not friendly and even downright rude.

I hear that Westjet is great and that AirCanada was good as well...I`ve only flown AC for short trips to Toronto, so I can`t really comment on them for longer flights.

Whoever you go with just remember that you`re on your way to the sun,surf and sand!!!
