Direct Air Informative - SCAM
MASSACHUSETTS -- 100% the worst and most expensive flight of my entire life. Short of long is this airline is a SCAM...exclamation point!!!! Especially the "to good to be true" deals. Return flight from west palm was "canceled" 3 weeks before lift off. Our options...return 3 days later or get a voucher NOT a refund. Well traveled over Holiday so alternate airline one-way flight running $500-600. My options...1) cancel my family cruise and eat $3k. 2) Grab a 1 way ticket home same day (family of 4) $2k. 3) Stick around in FL and wait for next DA return flight.
We selected option 3 and stuck with $60 flight. In the end it still cost me almost $3k after hotel, rental car, food...etc for extended stay.
The kicker...we got home and bumped into friends of ours who fly DA often. And they confirmed afterwards they flew home on said "cancelled" DA FLIGHT. So I was straight up LIED to. In addition...the landings were violent...couldn't understand language of flight attendants, credit cards machine broken at check in. Just a chop shop operation.
The good news or bad news for DA. I'm an internet marketer and part owner of a golf instructional company with an email list of over $400k golfers. DA runs a Charter to golf haven....Myrtle beach. I'll bet more than a handful of my subscribers travel on that Charter.
So after I contact the attorney general attorney and BBB, I'm blasting an email to 400 THOUSAND golfers about my experience. Heck...I'll in even throw a few damaging posts to 7 thousand Facebook "golfer" followers.
Screw you Direct Air. Karmas a biatch!!!!
