We have 2 departure gates (Calgary & Toronto) Suddenly Transat decided to change the package out of Calgary to Thurs-Thurs which isn't going to work considering it is the day right after the wedding!!
We were told to book early because things were starting to book up. Then they change the date by 2 whole days and tell us that's what happens when you book so early. @#$%&*!!! We've searched other companies but now the prices are WAY more than our group pricing we had with Transat at the minimums for group booking with these other companies are too high for my group that is flying out of Calgary. We could have people fly to Toronto to get in on the group booking through that gate, but that would add $800 per person on top of the package price. This is a complete DISASTER!!! We are at the point where we are going to have to tell everyone that they just have to go book their own thing and probably expect to pay way more than we told them on the invite.
Has this happened to anyone else? I'm just so angry, I needed to vent!!! Transat..... BOOOOOO ON YOU!!!!! }
OMG!! They just did this to me too!!
They changed our December dates from a Sat-Sat to Thurs-Thurs, which completely screwed over some people's vacations plans and arrangements, not to mention now people need to take at least 6 days of vacation, not 5!! Luckily our wedding date was on the Tuesday so it is not affected and will still work. But frustrating!! Our invites used the Saturday to Saturday dates, and so now for all the guests who might not be booking through the group, I have to contact to let them know we will be staying at different dates if they want to align.
