Re: Mom, daughter kicked off Air Canada plane, not told they're banned from airline until it was too late

Don't like the customer and don't want his business? Well, OK, that's your prerogative. But no way you can keep the money. AC doesn't have their money. LH does, since it was purchased on LH stock. As far as the banned customers are concerned, they purchased a LH ticket. Period. And now they get to ...

Re: Mom, daughter kicked off Air Canada plane, not told they're banned from airline until it was too late

I will, however, question whether one airline can decide a pax is a threat without that translating to them being a threat across all other airlines. Either they're a threat or they're not. They can't be a threat on AC, but not on LH - that doesn't seem like a sustainable or reasonable definition o...

They shouldn't have been allowed to board the first flight either. AC's inaction led to that. How would you expect AC to prevent someone from boarding a flight on another airline, exactly? There are no bigger issues. AC doesn’t want their business, and declined to board them. Sometimes things reall...
