Des influenceurs québécois risquent des amendes salées et d’être bannis de compagnies aériennes après avoir enfreint des règles de l’aviation durant un gros party qui a dérapé à bord d’un vol pour Cancún. #covid #polqcExtrait de la fête ci-dessous https://t.co/nGfRjY8uOj pic.twitter.com/kBzZwfp4EQ— Francis Pilon (@FrancisPilon_) January 4, 2022
Reckless behaviour by Quebec influencers on a chartered Sunwing flight, Dec. 30.

Following the posting of the now-deleted footage on social media, Sunwing cancelled the group’s return flight, which was scheduled for Wednesday. James William Awad, who organized the flight, argued that the cancellation is unfair and that his group complied with the airline’s safety measures.

“I agreed to all their conditions. But I wanted to make sure my group eats, so I told them I want food [on] the plane…It’s a five-hour flight, they don’t want to feed my group. It poses no concerns for flight safety.”

Awad also claims that the group would not have continued to vape if someone had told them to stop. However, Sunwing’s website states that e-cigarettes “must be packed in your carry-on baggage and cannot be used onboard.”

The federal Minister of Transport, Omar Alghabra, tweeted about the matter this morning, revealing that Transport Canada plans to launch an investigation into the flight.

I am aware of the reports of unacceptable behavior on a Sunwing flight. I have asked Transport Canada to investigate the matter. We must take the risks of COVID seriously!— Omar Alghabra (@OmarAlghabra) January 4, 2022
