Finally a Flair representative showed up and she had me fill out a form for the lost luggage. They could not contact YVR to see if the bag was there. It is...

If I could give it a 0 I would. Save yourself the trouble, it's better to spend a little more money and book with a more trustworthy and reputable airline such as Air Canada or WestJet. I booked a flight for my grandparents to come to visit me in BC. They do not speak any English and relied on a...

Flair's seats are clearly made by Lulu Lemon; they only fit if you have a small or x-small waist! The most uncomforable flight of my life! The worst customer service. And the plane itself seemed very unsafe and sketchy. I will never fly with them again even if it were free. I could go on for hours about how terrible...

Will never use this company ever again. Also if you have the option of 100 more for another flight compared to flair air...
