>The amount of people who had been evacuated in just 11 days now stands at: 90,000. One third of that in just 4 days. The fires are expected to rage for months. Emergency services from all over are there, helping as best they can:
Canada is a country of people who help each other in challenging times, Trudeau told his caucus Wednesday.
“I’ve been dealing with offers of support and calls from the Atlantic provinces, all the way out to B.C., as people are looking for how they can support their friends and neighbours as people go through this difficult time.”
This is where we say: God bless you wonderful people and keep you all safe.
And then this happened:
‘“it isn’t right that we raised fares in keeping with this devastating predicament,” Air Canada stated. “In some cases, customers booking last-minute on could three and 4 on flights from fort McMurray and Edmonton paid top rate fares.
“This used to be an influence of Air Canada’s computerized revenue management method, which robotically manages fares.”
The airline went on to assert that they have been unable to intervene in advance to manually regulate fares. “In those situations we will be contacting buyers who paid a premium to adjust the fare to the most often to be had, lowest develop fare and refund the change.”
buyers took to Air Canada’s facebook web page to air their grievances over the “outrageous” rate of flights out of citadel McMurray amid the wildfire difficulty.’
You filthy, dirty, low life, scum sucking, miserable excuse for humanity. You even thought your little bit of back peddling would make things better?:
‘the airline has been considering delivering “our lowest on hand fares” to folks littered with the fortress McMurray situation, together with shedding additional costs.’
CONSIDERING?!?!?! How how very considerate of you. Well, when you have got done ‘considering’ it, do please let us know your profound thoughts on exactly how and when your company nosed dived in the financial market. Also:
‘Air Canada has additionally donated $50,000 to the purple move to aid with comfort efforts.’
Big deal. How much money did you make off the backs of those victims? What is that word, that means a sub-human that profits off tragedies? Oh that’s right, it’s called an opportunist. Personally we think you are lower than low.
And it gets worse:
Partial??? Why not full? What do you think those people will do with the last of their bucks? Save it up for their end of year bonuses? All our readers know full well that ‘partial’ could mean as little as a dollar. How much is ‘partial’ Air Canada?
‘The announcement comes after allegations of price-gouging, with photos showing ticket prices above $4,000 circulating on social media. However, Air Canada says it did not intentionally raise prices.’
$4 THOUSAND!! for ONE ticket? To avoid being burned to death? What a choice! Noticed they acknowledge that the prices had, in fact been increased? Just like that, no rhyme, no reason. Just increased. We wonder why that happened now and not at any other time in Air Canada’s history? Hm.
‘Tara Topolinsky, a Vancouver native, says she was told a flight home from Edmonton would cost about $200 more than normal. After an eight-hour drive south, however, she was eager to leave, and offered to pay about $780 for a business class seat for the same day.
Topolinsky says that ticket allowed her to board while others waiting for the oversold flight were kept on standby.
“I was allowed on because I was willing to pay more,” she said.’
Evil, just pure evil.
The final nail in Air Canada’s coffin, in our opinion was this:
So, not your fault then? Your computers, your pricing structure, your policies, but it wasn’t you? That’s your excuse? It’s pathetic.
Do you know why we call bullshit on this? Members of our team work in similar fields and one of the easiest things to do is this. When you select/change the pricing option, the computer says ‘Are you sure about this’? (terminology may change), the user then clicks YES! and the computer changes the price for everything in that selection.
So, you condemn ‘all forms’ of exploitation of children, but not their parents or other adults? Not the needy, just the kids who in reality, probably don’t have four THOUSAND dollars to fly Air Canada, probably couldn’t even tell you how many zeroes make up a thousand.. And how are you contributing to those children by taking that money away from their folks?
Candid? “I was allowed on because I was willing to pay more,” Straightforward? ‘It wasn’t our fault, it was a computer glitch’. Way to go in avoiding ‘misrepresentations, manipulation, misuse and unfair dealing practices’. You rock!
And no, we are not done with you yet:
And there is the truth of it, hidden between the lines, hidden in plain view. ‘At odds with Air Canada’. And lets face it, this company are in the business of making money, not making friends.
So this is what we suggest. Imagine that Air Canada sold seats to just 1,000 people. And charged those people $4,000 each. That is a total of $4,000,000. Take away the massive ‘Damage control’ token of $50,000 and Air Canada had made $3,950,000 in profit. Off the backs of those in need of help and assistance, comfort, support, understanding.
TAKE A STAND!
Air Canada are only concerned with their profits. Hit them in their pocket. Boycott Air Canada and show them, that this behaviour is not only despicable and unforgivable, but it will not be accepted.
They have offered refunds to the customers ‘they contact’. How are they going to contact those people?
Scum of the earth should be treated as such.
What do you think? Do you believe Air Canada will return all the money they stole from the victims? Do you agree with what they have done to make a quick buck? Will you speak with your money, or continue to reward Air Canada for their crimes?
