Just curious....Sunwing.

Why is it always the same names that make these kinds of headlines, if it's a "perfect storm"?

Get what you pay for.......

According to twitter, still having issues right now.....

Here’s another sunwing one from this weekend....

My next door neighbours came back from the Dominican on Saturday. They landed and no luggage for The flight came onto the carousel at all. Apparently The airline lost the entire plane load of baggage. Over 48hrs later and still not a word of where their luggage might be.

“It’s the worst experience of my entire life,” one woman told CTV Toronto.

Of your entire life?

How is it that people that are gifted such luxurious trouble free lives and are so put out by a delayed/cancelled flight always end up with the cheapest holiday package available?

Hey been informed Sunwing has postponed their flight from 8:00am to 5:10 pm tomorrow Apr 18th for their flight to Cancun from Vancouver citing weather as a factor. All other operators in the pacific northwest heading that way are on schedule. Weather forecast looks good to me. Anybody have some insight?

How can you tell which one is the pilot when you walk into a bar?....Don't worry he will come up and tell you.

When you get down to it, every aviation operator gets this sort of publicity from time to time. Same difference as they say.

Did Sunwing tatoo the inside of their left arm with their serial numbers and force them to work to death? Worst day of her life? @#$!, somebody put this woman on a no fly list for our sake and her's.

Swissport's problem is Sunwing's problem.

Well... I was stuck at an airport for hours because Air Canada’s reservation system crashed and so was everyone at every airport across the country.

The whole “you get what you pay for” is complete BS.
