Missed our return flight/had to pay thru the nose
Pros: The flight from YUL to CDG was fine.
Cons: We had a flight into CDG from Split that arrived 2 hours before our flight was set to leave. Because of the size of CDG and the long wait for our baggage from the Split flight on Easy Jet, we arrived at the Air Transat desk 5 minutes after it closed. We then had to pay MORE than our round-trip tix to get a one-way to Quebec, then taxis and Bus to Montreal, where our car was. We could have gotten on our plane if you were just a tiny bit more understanding and flexible; we were willing to jettison anything in our bags that needed checking in order to bring them as carry-on.
The agent who re-booked us said we are at least entiltled to a refund on the trip taxes for the tix we did not use.
We were travelling with another couple, Lee and Betsy Lynd, who shared our experience.
