Seriously what a crappy experience I had on the return trip from New Orleans to Toronto. Our flight was at 1:20 pm, we got there at around 11 just to be safe. Made it through security with no problem, got some food and waited around until about 12:30 when our plane landed.
The woman from air Canada said we would start boarding around 1pm…1pm came and no dice. Then she gave a vague announcement about some maintenance issue that they were taking care of, and how they needed some part. Well 30 minutes later they called all the airlines, had the part and now just needed some paperwork signed. At about 2pm we board the plane…it is Louisiana, and it is hot…so the plane is hot. Also this is a small plane, 2 isles with 2 seats per side. Maybe 20 rows. 40 people tops.
Well after an hr on the plane we kept hearing that it is almost fixed. 30 minutes later we hear this again. After this the stewardess comes on with a passanger, some Air Canada Elite and he says somethine to her, they start going at it. Yelling… sir I will have you detained if you threaten me…blah blah blah, passenger numbwer 2 joins in… and the yelling continues. Finally that ends and we sit about another hour…
The plane finally takes off, no movies, music and one bathroom for 40 passengers who have been sitting in a plane for 2 hrs. It was terrible.
When you think it could not get any worse we end the flight with a sweet 1, 2, 3 pint landing that felt like the plane was going to snap, and then 20 more minutes waiting for the bus to take us to the proper terminal. It was terrible.
