STUCK IN CHURCHILL I was bumped from my last night's flight as the 737 broke down and they used a much smaller ATR prop aircraft. 12 hours later and I am still on the phone trying to re organise my numerous connecting flights to Aus which I have now missed. There are no roads to and from here and the rail line...

My first time on this airline. Professional servixe. Flight was well staffed. Aircraft very clean and well kept. I was surprised there were no seats assigned but I was told that was normal. So everyone got on,selected a seat and off we went. Excellent flight ans great staff. Will gladly fly with them again when I am in the area....

We don't seem to have a great deal of luck with CalmAir. Their staff is unfailingly very professional, friendly and helpful - but the planes seem to be plagued with issues, more so than any other airline I fly with. In this case, we did take off on time...but had to turn back shortly after getting in the air due...

The ATR's are an efficient means of moving people and cargo and the staff do a great job, but it can be a bit of a squeeze getting into the plane. It is a tight fit especially if travelling with some bulky 'workers' heading north in their winter gear. I flew several routes with them this month and all went...

Just a head's up, seating is first come first served. No seat designations. Also there were 2 loud obnoxious people sitting in the middle of the plane talking so loud I'm sure the pilot heard them. The flight attendant did nothing. Very disappointed

Not sure what to expect from this Airline but we had 2 smooth flights and the usual service from major airlines. We had plenty of room and all Flight Attendants were friendly and took care of us. Our whole trip had 6 flights and these were the Calmest!
