“Do not fly with corsair!”
Review of Corsair


Reviewed 14 September 2017

DO NOT FLY WITH CORSAIR! WORST EXPERIENCE EVER.

I was recently booked to fly home from Paris to Montreal with Corsair and because of the employees at Check-in I was unable to check-in properly and missed my flight, and then had to PAY to book another flight for the following day 24 HOURS LATER.
I was having trouble checking in, and the woman told me that for some reason my visa wasn't being accepted in the system.. I was one of the first people in line to check in very early, and after trying to check me in and failing, she made me wait to the side while she served many other customers... eventually I was told I had to apply for an AVE (ESTA) about 2 hours later and that my student visa (which has allowed me to live and study in canada for 2 years and is still valid for another 2 wasn't enough.. So I quickly went online, applied and received confirmation for the AVE, and then still had time to check in and I was told that even with the AVE their system still wasn't accepting me.. it was then too late and I missed the flight and was forced to PAY a ridiculous amount for the next flight in 24 HOURS, and then had to pay for airport hotel for the night. I am extremely angry and dissatisfied with the service I received with Corsair, my missed flight was completely due to the incompetence and inexperience of the employees who served me and because of this I had to pay an extra 330 euros for flight and hotel.

Ugh. Air travel in this age, when airlines are not being shy about their disdain for economy travelers, is challenging enough as it is. But there should be limits.

It's like Corsair designed their seats to be extra, extra uncomfortable on purpose. Try to put the armrest up to get a little relief? Ha ha ha! Joke's on you! Armrest goes up, but is designed to continue to protrude, jamming itself solidly into your shoulder and back.

We didn't pay extra to book seats on our flight, so were crammed into the very back of a very large plane smelling other people's business for 6 hours straight.

Keeping toilet paper stocked with hundreds of people jammed together in a metal tube? Not a priority for Corsair.

Movie selection: abysmal

Selection for kids on a trans-Atlantic flight = 1. That's right, ONE family movie and not a single TV show/cartoon.

Really Corsair? You only want to help us entertain our kids for 75 minutes out of 400?! Sure! Let's do that!

All in all, we arrived safely, and they fed us. They also fed the kiddos first, which is something. Also, the flight attendants did not punch passengers upside the head repeatedly -- which is a blessing, as we had the impression that is how corporate feels about its economy passengers.

Business class seats cost abd extra $369. Older A340 with brown leather and HiFly crew. Lie flat seat which is better than sitting in economy. Food was great and alcohol liberally served. Only thing was they seemed to switch lights off to late or on too early. Orly still no where as polished as CDG.

Yes - it might be a cheap airline company (well not that cheap), but if this is the return your get from your investment, I rather pay extra 100 euros for a peaceful, enjoyable and less stressful flight.
