Anyone want to tweet @AirCanada and ask if they are honoring yesterday's tickets bought without YQ?

Spoke to rep in 100K department today about adding lap child.

A few things.

She said infant/baby for unborn/unnamed wouldn't work for international travel.

She said that there was a system glitch and they didn't charge taxes (we know ) key point is they are honoring it cause it was an error on their end.

Also from the way it sounded, they need to manually price lap child tickets because the system usually builds off the price of your ticket and your ticket won't have YQ. Should be something a few hucas can save you some cash on.

Personally she sounded like a DROPR type of rep so take it as you will.

i booked my trip for purim, and mistakenly chose flights on shabbos. AC said that they would honor the tickets, but not any changes to it.
I still have a few hours to cancel it until 11:59 PDT.

I've considered same day changes and standby, and decided I wont do those.

Any suggestions how I can still make use of these tickets?

Come a few hours late to the airport and try your luck of them putting you on the next flight...

Aside from the luck trying to land a seat, I'd still be charged the same day change fee of $100 per ticket as well as change in fare.

We're waiting for the full list, though it would probably work better if @Dan had a larger family. I'd share my family birthday list, but while it's much longer than Dan's list, I doubt it would help with error fares.

from my experience AC reps were pretty knowledgeable, you will not be able to get a seat for the price of your ticket I tried several phone calls with them last time around, (my baby wasn't born at the time of the glitch)

Am I the only one that gets my eyes to play trick on me and think I see AC HORROR (which one would get by combining HOT and ERROR) every time I glance at this thread's title?

Worth a shot. Not sure why everyone did the whole eclipse thing on a Monday, when we were all free on Sunday...

They may not add the taxes because the system apparently base the taxes off the taxes you paid for adult fare, in this case non.
