They flew well. The noble West Jet allowed to carry as much as a whole piece of free baggage on flights outside of Canada and the United States. True, feeding, as everywhere else today on our mainland, relied only on money – or bring it with us, and we will pour you a drink and give a napkin. We did just that. A 5-hour flight nevertheless breaks the day regime. Continue reading
