Unreal. Even the dead get fucked over by Air Canada. After spending a small fortune (it was cheaper, and pardon the crudity, to have propped him up in seat and send him home than ship him cargo, which they had to do) to have a body shipped from Alberta to Deer Lake, it gets bumped from a flight and is 12 hours late arriving.
The airline didn't inform the family of the delay. It was only because the funeral director, who was at the airport to collect the body, called to let them know it got bumped that they found out. They even had to delay the funeral. The airline has also apparently not called to apologize for the massive screw-up.
You know, when the zombie Apocalypse happens I'll take solice in two things. First, that I'm relatively safe up here. And secondly, that most of the zombies are going to go straight for Air Canada employees and executives to settle some scores.
Although I imagine they will go hungry when the get to the airline execs. No brains, after all.
Seriously though, when is someone going to wake up, fire most of the AC execs and then do some corporate headhunting with airlines that know how to run properly (Singapore and Emerites airlines, I understand, are particularly well managed). Perhaps get a few people that know how to run an airline in a way so that most of your customers don't hate you and wish you dead.
Just a thought. Which is apparently more than we're seeing with Air Canada.
