So I just went through the absolute worst air travel experience in my lifetime, I witnessed and talked to others going through even wilder stories. Anybody else dealing with this? I'll highlight my trip below for those interested, it was fucked up... To Portland Fredericton to Montreal (AC) - left an hour late, but fine Montreal to Toronto (AC) - left 2 hours late Toronto to Portland (AC) - landed at Pearson and ran like an Olympian with 0 minutes to make my Portland connector, AC app said everything there was on-time, my plane was in the air - went through US Customs figuring I'd work through it on the other side - 15 mins AFTER my plane was supposed to be flying I am notified the Portland flight was delayed an hour...YAY - ended up delayed another hour... - made it to Portland at 2:00AM (2 hours late), got my rental and on my way From Portland Portland to Vancouver (AC) - left an hour late, only an hour for my connector so that wasn't going to end well - notified my next flight was delayed so all good... Vancouver to Toronto (AC) - ran through the airport, not even a moment to snap a pic of mountains in the terminal windows - went through customs/security, made it with 20 mins to spare - great flight chatting with two older ladies, watched some movies Toronto to Fredericton (AC) - landed with 0 minutes to connect to my flight (yes it's on me next time to not do 1.5hr connectors) - however, notified as I walk in my flight to Fredericton is delayed an hour, YAY...going home - delayed another hour... - about to land in Fredericton and pilot overshoots runway, pulls up and instead of turning around and trying again, she decides to fly to Montreal - land in Montreal, sit on tarmac for 3 hrs, been awake 21 hrs at this point...no water, AC has no water - they tell us we are refueling and heading back to Toronto, on the way they say they will arrange another plane to get us to Fredericton - land in Toronto and they send everyone to customer service - those in customer service with checked bags are told to go get baggage...once they do they were locked out and unable to get back in past security (no boarding pass) - AC customer service is not helping anyone, sitting around for 3 hours, watching them yell at customers including an old lady in a wheelchair who was crying because she has been bumped for three days straight for her flight and has been sleeping at the airport in her chair. - talking to folks listening to their journey's, some better, some even worse than mine - up 28 hours at this point - finally get notified they rebooked me, look and its 10PM - 3 FUCKING DAYS away - people are frantic, customer support gridlocked, nobody getting nowhere...many unfortunate people have no options. - I got company travel agency to book me WestJet at premium and got me home by 5PM that night I literally had tears for some people...not even sure who is all to blame, but its disgraceful, absolutely sick. I could tell some other stories but I am tired of typing.
