I wanted to share the aweful experience I have had with flight network recently.
I recently bought a ticket with flight netowrk using a promotional code.
Online it was made clear that the credit card would be charged for a full amount of the flights, and a credit would be made back to the card for the amount of the promotional code.
However what occured was quite different.
1. I was credited the amount that the discounted flight would cost to my credit card by flight network themselves
2. I was charged for the full cost flight from the air carrier directly.
3. I was then charged the discounted flight cost from by credit card by fligth network personally
4. I was credited the $20 promotional code.
So I phoned flight network and spoke to Pamela, who assured me that an error had been made and the operator who made the transaction had chagred my card the discounted amount, noticed the error and so refunded the same cost, in order to process it correctly.
Firstly this is not true. The credit was put on first and then taken off afterwards, as verified with my credit card company.
But secondly and more importantly, the same day as the credit appeared on the card, my credit card details were stolen and a number of charges made to my card in Mississauga, Ontario, the same location as where flight network is based.
I believe that this is a "scam" made by the flight network employee who made this "error". Had the credit not been made to the card, it would not have been able to be used.
