Air Canada passengers stuck in the plane for hours at Montreal airport — not once, but twice

Amanda Keslassy says her family spent about five hours on a plane, Monday, but didn’t leave Montreal until Tuesday morning.

“It was hot,” she said. “There was a lot of stress.”

Her Air Canada flight was scheduled to take off for the Dominican Republic at 8:15 a.m., but she and her family were told to disembark three hours after loading. They were handed some food vouchers and told to board again at 2 p.m.

So that’s what they did, but still, the plane never took flight.

By 4 p.m., after two more hours of roasting among crying children and grumbling adults, they were told there was a mechanical issue.
