Almost Every Flight Departing Montreal-Trudeau Airport Has Been Cancelled Or Delayed Due To The Snowstorm And Passengers Are Furious
People have been stranded at the airport for hours.
If you thought you had it the worst when it comes to this sudden winter storm that has shut down the entire city, consider the people who actually have to travel in this weather.
The poor souls that don't have the opportunity to call into work sick and take a personal day at home, but instead have to go outside and attempt to wipe all the snow and ice off their cars and hit the road.
TL;DR Both the Montreal-Trudeau Airport and Jean-Lasage Airport are experiencing major delays and cancellations today. Below are tweets from customers who aren't pleased with today's winter storm.
Let's not forget it can get even worse than that, as there are people that had planes to take a flight today. Well, don't shoot the messanger, but whether you were travelling for business or pleasure... your flight departing the Montreal-Trudeau Airport is either delayed or cancelled today due to the conditions.
So, yes, hundreds of people are either stranded at the airport right now or stuck at home braving the weather when they could be in a tropical paradise.
Because of this, let's just say that Montrealers aren't too pleased right now.
I have been sitting in the Montreal airport for 19.5 hours trying to get to either Toronto or Edmonton. @WestJet says nothing is going out and they want everyone to be safe. All airlines want that. Have now seen 4 Air Canada flights leave to Toronto. Very frustrating.— Payner (@Payners16) February 13, 2019

Not only is the Montreal-Trudeau Airport suffering from the winter blizzard, but so is the Jean-Lasage Airport in Quebec City.

WOW AGAIN @WestJet reroutes my flight due to weather (understandable) but then leaves passengers stranded at Quebec City airport without a representative to assist in rebooking flights #worstcustomerservice— pkg (@prabhg_) February 13, 2019
Sort of misleading. You cancelled both my wife's flights but only rescheduled one of them. She is uncertain if she'll be able to leave tomorrow to Montréal.— pablo sans (@pablo_sans) February 12, 2019
Those of us that (luckily) don't have a flight we're missing today have still taken the opportunity to complain about the weather.
Montreal is pretty much closed today. Overnight we had 31 cm of snow and another 10 is expected today. All schools are closed. No snow day in the tech sector as its work from home day.— Ken Fogel (@omniprof) February 13, 2019
It help City of Montreal if the plows are actually MOVING to clear the snow ☹️ pic.twitter.com/EcsKNtlXy9— Jodi DiBartolomeo (@velma8899) February 13, 2019
