I am confused by this story
While Air Canada has a great Vancouver to HongKong flight system, why did his mother have to take that option when others were avaiable to her and her child?
She is from Kentucky and through the Red Cross International or Mercy Flights from the Doctors Without Borders group she could have secured a more appropriate flight with all
the medical necessities for the care of her little girl.
It was risky taking a flight where the routine could bring on stress which in turn could exacerbate a seizure.
The additional bad advice was given that AirCanada did not have the medical information necessary weeks ahead of the flight date so the child could have been accommodated properly. I can only think the child was functioning well and appeared it would be more
pleasant for her to be treated as a healthy traveller than a sick one.
Still - children are flown into the USA for all manner of mercy surgery and treatment from all over the world - I don't know why the family had to raise money and book a commercial flight.
Someone didn't check out all the options perhaps? This is a terrible outcome for a family.
She is from Kentucky...................
Air Canada sucks. Just MHO. No one has to agree.
I'm also confused why she didn't check out available stuff from home.........Kentucky Air or whatever.
Don't think we're getting the whole story.
Don't care. Nasty for the family.
BTW: Air Canada sucks.
So the family was going AMA? Now that's risky and changes the picture. Still this
medical information unavailable in time.... sounds a bit pricky.
More like "don't want to get involved".
Terrible decision for any family - and the child is the victim.
