Yup. $9.95 is a flat rate. No extras other than taxes.

While their flight staff is generally unfriendly, Air Canada does have a better inflight experience than WestJet: their enRoute system beats WestJet's live TV, the seats are comfier, and they have a better selection of booze on board. Plus, Aeroplan miles.

But at least if you fly west jet you know that you'll get there without the pilots walking out mid-flight.
