Air Canada Complaint - They Screwed All Of Us On Christmas Eve
CALGARY -- So we were in the Calgary airport standing in a long line waiting to get our baggage checked on to the plane. Suddenly a loud woman says all Vancouver passengers go over there pointing at a long line of ppl. So we go down the line all confused because its for international flights and want to question the lady but suddenly everyone disappears then the public address announcement ..the flight has been cancelled. they gives a 1-800 number after 45 minutes I get a rude man who tells me theres nothing at all available till after new years. I tell him west jet is flying he says well good for them. It turns out Err Canada made a business decision to cancel all short haul flights that day because they didn't want to spend anymore on glycol deicer for the wings. The spokesman on the news said they had already overspent the years budget. Considering it was Christmas eve and we had all paid a premium price I think it was inexcusable to ruin the Christmas of so many people. It just shows how this airline feels about their customers .. they couldn't care less. As well consider how broke they must be to pull this crap.
Don't buy a ticket from them, they may decide its not worth it for them or maybe they'll go out of business either way you're taking a big chance they might not get you there. I'll never fly with these ppl again.
