On an unrelated note, I wanted to give a big ups and many thanks to transat. Especially the csas and flight crews. After getting bumped 4 times on other carriers trying to cross the atlantic in the general direction of canada, AT came through big time and I got to fly recip js for the first time with them. It was the most pleasant standby travel experience i have ever had. The staff were friendly and graciously helpful the whole time getting me listed and checking in with me when the load was finalized and i could get a seat in the cabin.
Youre a class act AT. Happy landings
And it's free!
