  'How do they get away with it?' Couple bumped from Air Canada flight booked 2 months in advance 'How do they get away with it?' Couple bumped from Air Canada flight booked 2 months in advance Neil Crone and his partner, Kathryn Kelly, booked their March flight from Toronto to Miami more than two months in advance.So when they checked in and Air Canada informed them they had been bumped from their flight, they were shocked. "I can forgive an airline losing my luggage, or delaying a flight or even a cancellation for safety reasons," says Crone. "But bumping a fully paid customer? Unconscionable."Crone, an actor and writer, and Kelly played by all the rules.

So, which airline ranked as the best in the country? "This recognition by TripAdvisor and our customers demonstrates once again, that we are on the right path.” Alaska Airlines , Southwest, Virgin America and WestJet rounded out the remaining top five in this category.

One of the categories that Skytrax ranks regional airlines in is “ Best Airline Staff Service.” But occupying the second and third spots on the list, were WestJet and Porter respectively, two Canadian airlines that have also garnered a good following amongst frequent fliers, both at home and abroad.
