Thanks for the quick reply. Did they send her back out or did they have to do an equipment swap?

Again, thanks for the reply.

I hope they told you about EC 261/2004 and didn't try to snowball you.

Hi

No they didn't. They gave me some promo code. I was planning on contacting refund.me as they appear to have a good record on payouts. Should I contact AC Customer Service directly, or should I just go straight to refund.me.

Anyone got advice on how to proceed. It ended up being a 6 hour delay.

Thoughts anyone?

AC customer service. They are pretty good. I've had 2 experiences. Once they paid no issue, the other time they tried to avoid it and I reminded them that acft maintenance issues do not absolve them of their EC 261/2004 liabilities. They paid. Remember it's 600€ in a negotiable document (cash, cheque, etc). Travel vouchers are only acceptable if approved by the passenger.

AC883 posting long delay again

Anyone know why AC882 was delayed out of Toronto? Did the plane take off and returned to Toronto

Hmm, looks like the plane had some issue above Montreal and turned back and landed in YYZ after which it took off again nearly three hours later.
Poor paxes in Y, they pretty much flew a TPAC.

And I'm on AC883 right behind it. First time I actually stop in the SAS Gold lounge...

Edit: And only Red Label and Glen Livet... I'll settle for Glenlivet and Carlsberg I guess. I see a few others waiting for the same.
