Air Canada Informative - Thank You For Harassing My Wife
Air Canada: I had to pay for the same two tickets 2 times. I had to pay twice for my wife and pay twice for my son to take one flight.
Thank you for harassing my wife yesterday but also thank you for not Tasering her..
I am born Canadian and spend 50% of my time in the air.. The other 50% split equally between Peru and Canada. My wife is born Peruvian. My 6 year old son/duel citizenship, born in Peru.
My wife and son spent this last school year 2007-2008 in Canada. Yesterday they were to return to Peru. They have had their return tickets for one year. I am presently in Peru,I was waiting for their arrival at the Peru Airport.
I had spent a half-hour on the computer the night before confirming their baggage, their seat numbers. Three phone calls to my wife. ..she speaks Spanish,very little broken English.
They arrived at the Vancouver Airport and the Harassment started. (The early check-in Air Canada had sent me on the computer was wrong. It said Joshua, my six year old could check in luggage. It said Marlene my wife could also check in luggage.) Marlene brought this number of bags to the Airport. OH! OH! said the ticket agent. Joshua is only six. Six year olds are not allowed to check in luggage. ..and the harassment went on.
After all this, yesterday I Called the airline myself. They stated "the bags at one point were loaded on the plane,then unloaded". My wife, with minimum English, had no idea what was going on, missed her plane and returned to the Vancouver apartment we had been renting,this past year. The airline sold me another ticket,last night. I will try again to fly my family home,to Peru,this coming Friday.
But the good news is, they sufficiently harassed my wife, she never wants to fly again. She has two sisters married to Americans. These sisters spend between $5,000 to $10,000 per year flying home, Peru to see their mother. (I will not have to spend these dollars,I will now not have to buy tickets, for my wife to fly home and see her mother.)
With my time spent equally between Peru and Canada, I wanted to buy a house in Peru, Marlene previously wanted it to be in Canada. Yesterday afternoon, Marlene,my wife went to the bank and transfered $250,000 to the bank in Peru. Our house will be bought in Peru, this will also save me between $5,000 and $10,000 per year in airline tickets.
Each time I am on an Air Canada plane, by the time I arrive at my destination I am wondering why I ever fly this Airline but this time...Yes it cost me extra tickets to get my family home. I bought a total of 4 tickets Two tickets each to get my family home) when all I should have needed was two, (one each) but in the long run you saved me money.
Thank you Air Canada.
