“The worst airline in North America”

Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis called Air Canada the “worst airline in North America” ​​after allegedly being kicked out of first class on a recent flight from the US to Canada.

Mr. Lewis, who played the adorable Neville Longbottom character in all eight Harry Potter films, took to social media on Friday to romp about his experience with Canada’s largest airline.

“Confirmed. Air Canada is the worst airline in North America. And that is saying something,” he tweeted.

In a series of responses to other social media users, the 33-year-old British actor revealed that he was booked to fly first class from Orlando to Toronto on the airline.

But, when he arrived at the first-class gate, he claimed that an airline representative tore his ticket and forced him into the economy, citing a “full flight”.

“Pushing me from first class to the back of the plane is what it is, but doing it at the gate. Literally tearing off my ticket. No explanation other than “complete flight”.

“He said if I wanted to fix it I had to go to customer service. I asked where he was. “Toronto”. I’m in Orlando, “she tweeted her.

“Honestly, I’ve never experienced anything like it. I’ve been bumped before. It comes with the territory.

“But at the gate, less than two minutes from boarding and without explanations or excuses? Never. They also said if I want to complain or get a refund I have to contact them!

Mr. Lewis told CTV News Toronto in a statement that the practice of overbooking flights must be stopped.

“Air Canada’s customer service is shit,” he said.

“And we as a society should not agree with the normalization of the profit from overbooking of flights and the expulsion of people from flights.”

The actor has not yet spoken to an Air Canada representative on the matter, he told the outlet.

Several social media users responded to his complaints on Twitter, sharing their experiences with the airline.

“Oh, I’m so sorry this happened to you! They are the worst. They refused to take my luggage to London, they had to pay $ 500 each to have it shipped to Toronto. I still don’t reply to my emails. Good luck, I hope you make it! ” one person replied.

But others were less sympathetic to his plight, with one Twitter user labeling him a “spoiled brat”.

“You may have played a good guy role in the Harry Potter movies, but in real life you run into a spoiled brat,” they tweeted.

“I’m not a big fan of Air Canada at all, but most airlines are having post-pandemic problems as everyone is trying to travel again. Patience is not your strong point ”.

Air Canada also responded to the actor’s social media posts.

“Hi Matteo, we are sorry to hear that. Send us a DM message with more details on the problem, we’ll see if we can help you from here, “the airline wrote.

The independent contacted Air Canada for further comment on the incident.

The airline told CTV News Toronto that the matter was under review and cannot comment further at this time.

At the time of the incident, Mr. Lewis was on his way to Toronto to appear at the Fan Expo, where a signed autograph or photo with the Harry Potter star set fans back for $ 70.
