I am horrified. I just read this on the main page and it makes me sick. I think what Air Canada has done is create a situation where allergic people with either choose another airline OR just take their chances and not tell the airline about their allergy to avoid the exact type of issues encountered here. Or what if you have no trouble flying one direction but then have issues boarding coming home??? How many people will actually have the time /$ to get the doctors forms for their 'medical condition papers'.

WOW! If a person who was physically disabled showed up, (maybe requiring a little extra attention) without advance contact to the airline would they be asked not to board. I think not, that would be a pr nightmare, discrimination.

WestJet is our new airline of choice!

They have a novel concept - customer service. And they actually care about their passengers.
