Transat air

I just flew with TS to and from Jamaica... Never again. I'm a 5'2" smaller female and the seats were crowded for me so I have no idea how a taller person could be comfortable. We were delayed at both ends and on both ways mostly coming home the stewardesses were thee most rude I have ever experienced. The whole plane was unbelievably cold and a lot complained and all they kept saying was to bad and if you are cold but a blanket. Just the whole travel part of the trip was not good... Sorry but it's all true and I just thought others could learn from my mistake of booking with them..

Oh dear. seems like another story of North American airlines offering shoddy service to their own. Was a reason given for the delays?

Lets just say Air Transat fly a successful summer service between the UK and Canada and their plans are always full. Flew with them last year and had no problems with a flight across the Atlantic. Both ways it left and arrived on time and service was OK. Nothing special but nothing to complain about. I am a touch taller than the OP and did not have an uncomfortable flight any my seat was fine. Not complaining about my experience with them.

Because they're cheap. The product is pretty poor.

They may be cheap but just had return trip on Air Canada, must say experiences with Air Transat ( 4 transatlantic services ) much better then Air Canada, just a personal reflection.

I've flown with them numerous times and I'm 5'4 and my hubby is 6'1 and it is fine. I find they are a little tight, but you should know that going in when buying a charter. He is 6'1, we have a baby as a lap infant twice and it was not terrible.. Cost is what most people look for but to say someone who is 5'2 had a problem is a little over the top.. IMO.

We flew Air Transat to Brussels last summer, returning via Paris. The trip over was fine, the trip from Paris to Montreal was a delight!

The seating was comfortable, the entertainment varied (so much so that I didn't even crack open the magazine that I had bought for the flight). Our travelling companions said that it was the best flight they had ever taken.

Even though we are a two hour drive from the airport, we usually choose Air Transat over other airlines for international travel.

Are you kidding me 5'2" and uncomfortable. Cold? Should have borrowed a parka from someone, enough people bring them along when flying south.
