    I have not used them for a group booking but did use them in Jan 2010 for a week at the Gran Bahia Principe Tulum - and I will admit that I will NEVER use Air Canada again. No offense to those who like them - but for me EVERY time I've ever flown with them - they have messed up in some way or another. On top of the fact that their service on board has been way less than satisfactory compared to Westjet..and even Lufthansa.
    When we went to the Mayan last year - the flight left late...the flight attendants were quite curt most of the time...AND worst of all - they didn't come to pick us up from the

    resort to go home!!  Claiming we cancelled the pick-up which we of course would never do. We had to take a taxi back and barely made it in time.
    So from this experience alone - I decided well ahead of time that i would not be using them again if I had a choice.
    We've booked with Sunquest for our wedding in the Mayan next year - and got an AWESOME group price too!

    Again- I mean no disrespect to those who favor Air Canada - Ive just ALWAYS had issues when flying with them.

    Has anyone used Air Canada Vacations? It seems that as far as group bookings they have the best deal??

      Sunshine - I just replied to your post on the GBP page so I guess you can disregard my question of who you're flying with!

       

      I used Air Canada Vacations and I'm SO glad I did. My travel agent recommended them because they actually own and operate their airline and very rarely change/cancel flights compared to a carrier like Sunwing that will cancel flights that are not full and transfer passengers to another flight (sometimes resulting in changed dates). This was important to us since we were booking 8 months out and the idea of having flight times or dates change last minute for 35 guests stressed me out. They had the best prices and when booking as a group, for every 20 people booked, you got a free flight so one of us got a free trip! Myself and hubby got a free upgrade to first class and we received excellent service as did our guests in coach. They also have a price guarantee so if the price of your trip drops 60 day prior to departure, they'll honour the new price.

       

      I know it totally depends on your own personal experience but I've flown with Air Canada many many times for business and pleasure and have never had an issue! I would highly recommend them!
