Air Canada is aggressively expanding into the international market and offering North American travelers additional flight options when traveling overseas. Many business and frequent travelers are considering foreign airlines more frequently as options given that U.S. Airlines are often more expensive, quality of cabin service has been on a decline and frequent traveler loyalty seemed to be more appreciated.
