On March 10, 2016, my family and I were one of the lucky ones to escape the brutally cold Canadian winter, and fly to (you guessed it), Barbados for March Break. In this video, we are seen leaving the cold and gloomy weather behind to get a splash of sun!
This was the first time we flew Air Canada's low-cost variant, Rouge. I have to say, after reading all the negative reviews on SkyTrax, we were a bit apprehensive flying with Rouge, but after experiencing the airline for ourselves, we were pleasantly surprised! The legroom was decent for me because I'm a small person, and although, I did not use the entertainment system, I heard that it was alright. One tip to consider when using Rouge's IPads, if you rent them for $10, you will get the new movies but if you use your own, you will miss out, but I could be wrong, therefore, you should try flying Air Canada Rouge yourself. The legroom is not as bad as you think, perhaps only on their widebody aircraft.
All in all, Air Canada Rouge is a fine airline that I would fly again. My rating of this airline would be 7/10. My footage of our interesting arrival to Barbados will be uploaded soon. But for now, sit back, relax, and enjoy watching this new but old Air Canada Rouge Boeing 767 pushback, taxi, takeoff and climb from Canada's busiest airport, Toronto Pearson Airport.
By the way, my heart goes out to all the victims involved in the terror attacks in Brussels of March 22, 2016. #PrayforBrussels
