Air Canada Flights Getting Back to Normal After Strike

Saturday afternoon saw Air Canada operations get back to normal after pilots held a sick-in that left dozens of flights grounded and stranded many passengers overnight on Friday night.  A total of 75 flights were cancelled, but Air Canada says on its website that operations are back to normal and that Saturday’s flight schedule is operating as usual.  Toronto’s Pearson International Airport still had a fe delays later in the day, but most were early in the morning.

Amanda Champagne, a resident of Alberta, spent the night in a hotel and then waited hours on Saturday morning for a flight to Deer Lake, N.L.  It became apparent by noon that she might not get out on Saturday and was told by Air Canada staff she might have to wait up to a week.  Champagne said that the airline has to put their customers first.  Peter Fitzpatrick, a spokesperson for Air Canada, said the interruption in the flight schedule at Pearson was due to the illegal strike action held on Friday.
