Air Canada has many flights every day of the week to a variety of European cities. Air Transat=charter type airline=nowhere near the frequency of service of Air Canada.

That explains some of the price difference.

The last time someone asked this I looked at Air Transat's seat pitch and width and it sounded from a comfort perspective as though it was borderline inhumane even by economy class standards. For the $400 difference you might be able to fly their "Club" product which appears a tad more comfortable than AC's economy class.

I was shocked to see that Air Transat is still flying the A310 on some routes to Europe - talk about old!
