2 passengers were kicked off an Air Canada flight because they refused to sit in seats covered in puke, fellow traveler says

• An Air Canada traveler said two passengers were kicked off a plane for complaining about their seats.
• According to Susan Benson, the passengers boarded the flight to find the seats covered in puke.
• Benson said after the passengers complained, security boarded the plane and escorted them off.

Security escorted two Air Canada passengers off a plane after refusing to sit in a seat someone had vomited in, according to a woman who says she was seated in the row behind them.

In an August 29 Facebook post, passenger Susan Benson said she watched two women and a man " struggle to get seated" on the flight from Las Vegas to Montreal, Canada. Benson wrote in her post that she noticed "a bit of a foul smell" but hadn't yet realized where it was coming from.

Soon, though, she said she learned someone had thrown up on the previous flight.

"Air Canada attempted a quick cleanup before boarding but clearly wasn't able to do a thorough clean," her post read. "They placed coffee grinds in the seat pouch and sprayed perfume to mask the smell."

A puddle of puke will not disrupt their profit margin per passenger mile rate. magicarpet Sep 2023 #3
Sounds about right for Air Canada, we used to have Westjet as a really great alternative Bev54 Sep 2023 #4

Shud up and sit down in the puddle of puke. Shove these perfumed cotton balls up your nose.

Enjoy your flight.
