    Would reasonable baggage not include the personal items you're allowed to carry onboard for free?

    Swoop Tagged With Complaint

    You’re right but they don’t have the AIF, Nav Fees etc that makes our fares in Canada unreasonably less affordable. I flew Norwegian for a 45 min flight for 1/2 what it costs in Canada to go from YYC-YLW including a checked bag.

    A little simplistic but your point seems to convey that you do get what you pay for. The government and idiots like some advocates seems to want it both ways, deregulated-regulations to protect the saps.

    Swoop Tagged With Complaint

    In “a” base fare. So nothing preventing a swoop from posting a Y fare of $3,900 from YEG to YXX one bag included and ending the complaint.

    I think Lukacs has a good point. The rules are clear: “The Canada Transportation Act requires domestic airlines to offer a basic fare for travel within the country that has no restrictions with "reasonable baggage." So, the baggage should be included in the base fare.

    Our Prime Minister

    Trudeau's high-tax, high-deficit, low-growth plan is doomed Seven of our provinces have top tax rates above 50 per cent; this is state larceny. Other than in an extreme national emergency, the state has no right to more than half of anyone’s income “ In 2016, more than 30,000 fewer Canadians were in the earlier highest tax bracket, which began at $140,000. It always seems to come as a merciless surprise to politicians on the left, even the soft left, that most people consider that they have earned their incomes, that it is theirs as much as their private property is, and that governments do not have an unlimited, unchallengeable or unaccountable right to gouge an individual’s earned income.” https://nationalpost.com/opinion/conrad-black-trudeaus-high-tax-high-deficit-low-growth-plan-is-doomed

    $80 for a checked bag is excessive however you need to know the difference between low cost/ultra low cost or whatever Swoop calls themselves and a low fare airline. We flew Ryanair BCN-IBZ last year and the 25 min flight air fare was reasonable. Include better seating, priority boarding and extra baggage it adds up. I was also pre-warned to produce our own printed boarding passes or pay €50 for each one they printed.
  21. All About Votes...IT NEVER EVER WAS ABOUT GETTING THE BEST DEAL FOR CANADIANS! Canada may hold off until after Quebec election as U.S.-Mexico drafting two-way trade deal Major concessions on access to the dairy market could turn into a volatile election issue in Quebec, where the latest poll shows the governing Liberals creeping ahead. As high-intensity trade talks ended in Washington Thursday without a breakthrough, speculation mounted that Canada will wait until after Quebec’s Oct. 1 election to strike a deal, hoping to lessen the political fallout from potential concessions around the dairy industry. The word throughout the U.S. administration and Congress is that Canadian trade negotiators are reluctant to make deep dairy compromises – if American negotiators continue to demand them – until later next month, said Dan Ujczo, a trade lawyer closely monitoring the discussions. “If we move past today without any significant progress, I think we’re looking at a post-Quebec election scenario,” he said. “If I’m a Canadian negotiator, why would I make significant concessions days before the Quebec election? It doesn’t make sense.” Meetings between Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer wrapped up Thursday without a deal between the two countries. They have been immersed in pressure-filled talks since Mexico and the States announced a bilateral agreement last month. Freeland was expected back in Ottawa Friday, meaning the ministerial-level discussions would resume next week at the earliest. https://business.financialpost.com/news/u-s-mexico-drafting-final-text-of-two-way-trade-deal-but-canada-may-wait-until-after-quebec-election-on-oct-1
