My husband and I were on the flight from hell on a CanJet flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Toronto on Sunday, Dec. 15th. We get to the airport and there is not a Transat or CanJet (code share flight) employee anywhere around. We were on a Transat transfer from our cruise ship. So we waited in line for Air Transat. Then the Transat light is turned off and CanJet light is turned on at the check-in counter. Then entire line moves over. Then some Transat employees start to show up but won't give us any information. They are too busy chatting with each other and if someone asks a question they just laugh. I ask to speak to a supervisor. Some lady comes over and without an explanation moves the entire line back to where we were just standing at the Transat counter. Oh they were not nice to us at all.
Fine no problem I get it that doing their job was an issue. We get to the gate and it looks like our flight is on time to leave at 12:55 p.m.. We go for a bit of a walk as we are there very early. We look at one of the two boards again and it says that the flight is delayed now until 2:20 p.m. and boarding at a different waiting area but then the board beside it says something totally different. Again no employee to ask. We're waiting for the plane and our departure time comes and goes. No announcement no employees to ask. Finally someone shows up and she has no clue. Sometime around 2:00 p.m. a Canjet shows up from Montreal and shortly thereafter we are able to finally start to board. That same supervisor is on hand to make sure everything runs quickly. They close the door, show the safety video and then we hear from the captain...sorry folks we have a engine malfunction we need someone to come and fix it. One hour later we are cleared for takeoff again. We taxi out to the active runway, the engines revv we are ready to go and suddenly the lights go out, the AC goes off and the engines shut down. We have to be taken back to the jetway. Now a computer malfunctioned. At this point everyone wants off because we feel the plane is unsafe to fly. They won't let us off. We finally get to take off after another hour. What we didn't know was that we'd be stuck on a plane with 4 of the most unprofessional flight attendants (two female and two male). They were nasty to the passengers and not much better towards each other. One flight attendant actually pushed a passenger who was waiting to use the lav out of the way. Wow we couldn't wait to get out this most uncomfortable plane and situation. When we left the plane the flight attendants couldn't even be bothered to say goodbye and thank you for flying with us. Wow!! Great customer service skills NOT!!!
