« Yes, Air Canada did this to everyone. The flight of a Montreal friend was canceled, without the possibility of contacting the company, ”testifies an annoyed Internet user in a tweet.

Another traveler says she missed Christmas with her family after her flight was cancelled. Same scenario: the latter claims to have been unable to contact Air Canada since the announcement of its cancellation.

« Air Canada, your line is open 24 hours a day, 7/7 and you have been unreachable since the cancellation of my flight, » she lamented.

Due to current weather conditions and « reduced airport capacities », Air Canada had announced earlier in the day that some flights would be cancelled. The airline is asking travelers to turn to online tools to change their flights or get a refund, creating frustration for many helpless holidaymakers.
