Ask Bweinh! Poll — Cheese

03/17/2008, 10:15 am -- by | No Comments

Today’s — perhaps the last — Ask Bweinh! poll is brought to you by our longsuffering patron, Air Transat. The worst airline in the world, bar none!

One last satisfied customer writes:

“I objected to paying what would be an extra £60 for a service most other airlines can provide without payment. The representative cut me off . . . Frankly, I don’t believe them, but I can’t afford to take the chance . . . It’s little short of blackmail. Air Transat will get that extra £60 but it comes at the cost of my never flying with them again irrespective of the service.”

Air Transat — it’s little short of blackmail!

Today’s Ask Bweinh! poll is brought to you by Air Transat: the worst airline in the world!!

Here’s what one customer had to say —

“My husband and I had the most horrific experience of our lives taking Air Transat from Paris back to Toronto. . . [after going to the wrong terminal because of a mistake on the ticket], we were 5 minutes past the boarding cutoff time, which meant the flight didn’t leave until another 40 minutes. We begged them just to push us through as it wasn’t that busy, but they refused. . . [W]e had to pay approximately $500 more to get to Montreal, which was 6 hours away from our destination, and we had to sleep at the airport for 24 hours as we didn’t have any money left for a hotel.”
