The man in charge of the “Air Passenger Rights” website—says if WestJet pilots go on strike—-the company should do more than just refund tickets.
The pilots have voted to hit the picketlines—and the earliest that could happen is May 22nd–because they say they dont want to mess with the long weekend..
Gabor Lukacs says he thinks refunding a ticket is just the start of what WestJet should do.
He says they should also buy that person a ticket on another airline for the same time–and provide them with accomodation, hotel and meals.
He does say if you’ve had a flight booked for a while—-not much can be done to help you–since there arent passenger protection laws in Canada.
So the refund—is your best bet.
