Air Transat cancelling most of its flights from western Canada this winter, affected customers will receive refunds.

they are supposed to refund any flight from a western Canada airport that was not domestic, and did not have a connection in Montreal or Toronto. They are refunds flights from end of March first of all and then working from a schedule depending when the flights were due to depart.

They may decide to change their minds again so I’m not holding my breath

Your advice regarding bank accounts is definitely useful though, thanks.
Did you have a previous SIN number?
had one issued in 2010, it's never been used as such and to my surprise it still checks out as valid.

Thank you so, so much. I'd never seen that website before. I do have the SIN and I know it still exists on their systems because the CRA checked it when they provided some documents for my EE application (one of my Canadian employers was an IT consulting agency who have since ceased trading).

My SIN returned this result when I put it into that tool:

This is a valid temporary SIN; however, you must still verify the expiry date on the actual SIN card. You must also ask to see the work permit and check for any restrictions.
Presumably I would still be OK to commence work using that number though, right? As long as I can also provide proof of my legal right to do so (i.e. my COPR). The only other problem is that I don't have the card anymore. I don't actually remember being issued with one at all but I got the SIN from my old T4's and ROE form.

It looks like Transat are already starting to trim the schedule. They've cancelled the outbound flight I booked for next month and bumped me forward by 1 day. It looks like they're only going to be running 2 flights per week between Manchester and Toronto. If that's what they have to do to keep operating though then it's fair enough I suppose.

Many people, including myself would disagree! They have been a nightmare to deal with!

Oh that doesn't surprise me. I'm fortunate in that if they screw me around too excess then at least EU law means I can get my money back. I know people with reservations that depart from Canada may not be quite so fortunate though.

If it's any small consolation, I was supposed to go to Australia over Easter and ended up having to go through the bank to get a refund.

You are lucky you got a refund. My credit card informed me today that AT have rebutted my chargeback despite the fact I also have EU law and CAA UK on my side.

They tried that but it failed. To be fair, with my flight to Australia it wasn't the fault of the airline. In fact, Singapore Airlines were great about the whole thing. It was the crappy online travel agent I booked the flight through.

I booked another internal flight for while I was in Australia and the agent and airline on that one were appalling but fortunately my credit card provider sorted it out through Section 75. I will never use GoToGate or Trip.com again after this, assuming they both even survive 2020.
