Flair Airlines can keep flying in Canada, regulator rules
Calgary Herald: 'Flair Airlines Ltd. can continue to fly domestically following a ruling by the Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA), ending months of speculation about the future of the discount carrier.
'The Edmonton-based airline, which offers cheap fares and no-frills service for flights throughout Canada and to destinations in the United States and Mexico, had been facing the possibility of losing its domestic operating licence over concerns it had violated Canadian foreign-ownership rules.'
Here's the thing about Flair: the seats are tiny; they nickel and dime you for everything; the wait at the gates is laughably long; and you'll be left wishing you had alternatively been catapulted naked to your destination. The upside: it's not Air Canada, and not based in Quebec.
