Some People …
Some believe that just because they have paid full price for an airline ticket, they are entitled to a seat on the aircraft.
Air Canada spokesperson Angela Mah said in an email to CBC that standby tickets are generally not issued to customers. But she said if the airline substitutes a smaller aircraft because of mechanical problems or other operational reasons, passengers will be put on standby.
In a second email, Mah said Washburn-Hayden’s flight was “extremely full,” but did not say if that meant it was overbooked.
After her flight, Washburn-Hayden had a messaging exchange with Air Canada Social Media, and was told that because she didn’t pay extra for a guaranteed seat, her getting one was dependent on availability. She was also advised that she should have taken advantage of the online booking available 24 hours before the flight.
See, it’s just like baggage, there a fee for it … 😈
So, when do these Air Canada people start work in the White House?
