Air Canada unveiled a spiffy new look for its Jetz charter aircraft today, and the airline was met with some vomit-related feedback on social media.
The quips come after two women were removed from their commercial Air Canada flight after complaining about vomit stains and stench in their seating area last month.
It stirred up a fury of backlash towards the airline and Air Canada apologized to the customers and launched an internal investigation into the matter.
But it seems like the incident isn’t an easy one to shake off.
On X (formerly Twitter), Air Canada posted a photo of one of its revamped Jetz charter planes that will be used to transport sports teams, musicians, and corporate clients.
