« They said if I wanted to sort it out, I had to go to customer service, » he continued. “I asked where it was. « Toronto ». I’m in Orlando.

According to Lewis, he had « never experienced anything like this » before and was no stranger to being kicked out of a robbery. However, he added: ‘But at the gate, less than two minutes to board and no explanation or apology? Never. They even said if I wanted to complain or get a refund I had to contact them!

However, Lewis was quick to point out that his negative experience with the airline hasn’t affected his love for Canada.

In a statement he gave to CTV News Toronto, Lewis said he had not yet been able to speak to an Air Canada representative.

« Air Canada’s customer service is top notch, » he said. « And we, as a society, shouldn’t be okay with normalizing the profit from overbooking and kicking people out of flights. »
