Never said I deserved it, have no entitlement attitude whatsoever as I didn't even get in on the deal myself.

I'm trying to say that my issue isn't necessarily with people getting in on the deal, rather it's with the entitlement attitude that they have.

Nice edit earlier ;D

I actually agree with you here, some people have an entitlement attitude when it comes to these deals which can be a bit excessive. The reason for my comments here is in direct relation to the actions taken by El Al after stating that they were going to honor the tickets like regular tickets. In regards to the OPs parents I remember speaking with them after they bought the tickets and asked them what they would do if the tkts were cancelled, their response was "Oh well," not "I'm going to file a complaint." They had no entitlement attitude.

The purpose of this thread was to provide a cautionary tale to those who do have these tickets that should their flights be affected by weather that they will be treated as second-rate passengers by the airline and not like a regular fare paying customer as they were promised by the airline.

You may thing they'd do that, but nobody got the galaxy's from Rogers when it was a significant loss.

Haha...just saw this comment and I am assuming you are CDN. Come on everyone knows that there is no such thing as a deal from Rogers.  :D

I disagree with you. I think you should take a chill. They did honor our tickets so just chill out.
i dunno, my sister tells me they've been harassing her calling her repeatedly to try and get her to change her ticket to the direct flight...  seems like they left the classy route behind a while back

Caveman? ?!?!?!

Question: you are on a forum called dansdeals... Because of Dan's history as a shrewd master of travel arbitrage, thousands of people (likely more) have taken advantage of everything from free k cups to next to nothing airline tickets. In between, there are also ways to utilize credit cards , taking out business cards, for example, for points when there is no "actual business" and reasons such as that.

Is that honest? Or are they just evil credit cards looking to steal our money so let's just game the system like buying dollar coins, paying off cc's with those dollars, and taking the points (which by the way cost the credit card company money).

Bottom line... This was a deal. There was a ton of speculation as to why it was cheap, folks bought them, and the airline honored them. Now treat ALL customers with respect. I am certain you, sir, aren't one that games the credit card system but rather comes to this site and forum to brag of the free k cups

No, humble.

lol, he's coming to say you shouldn't be judging him because you're all doing the same thing he is, and so you tell him not to judge others?
