Question of the Week

Chris Hick posts:

“I've been looking at a few award flights that can be booked through Avianca or Air Canada. The AC cost is slightly more. Are there any pros/cons of booking through Avianca vs Air Canada? I don't mind paying a little more if it's a better or easier experience.”
