This guide is designed to answer some frequently asked questions you may have.

I changed my flight in anticipation of a strike. Can I go back to my original itinerary?

Customers who made alternate travel arrangements in anticipation of a strike have until Monday October 17, 2011 , to contact Air Canada Reservations or local travel agent if they wish to rebook their original itinerary.

Does Air Canada’s flexible rebooking policy still apply now that a strike has been averted?
