Air Canada! Blame Canada!

Today, SI is going to pay homage to SM and Jason’s recent experience with Air Canada Rouge, summarized in this post on A Review of Air Canada Rouge – Just Say No for Business and Personal Travel over on Spend Matters. In consideration of his predicament, I suggest that one takes a South Park view and, in the spirit of consideration granted us by Trey Parker and Matt Stone … Blame Canada! (South Park Movie Clip; language NSFW)

Times have changed
Our flights are getting worse

They won’t upgrade their planes
They just want to fatten their purse!

Should we blame the government?
Or blame society?
Or should we blame United* for their misdeeds?

No, Air Canada<sup>**</sup>!
Blame Canada!

With all their beady little eyes
And flapping heads so full of lies

Air Canada!
Blame Canada!

We need to form a full assault
It’s Air Canada’s fault!

Don’t blame greed for old aircraft
Canada is so lax, they don’t know how to spend the tax!

And CEOS once had our travel needs first
But now amenities, one by one, have been dispersed!

It’s Air Canada!
Blame Canada!

It seems that everything’s gone wrong
Since Air Canada came along!

Blame Canada!
Air Canada!

They’re not even a real airline anyway

My son could’ve flown with dignity and flown in comfort too
Instead he froze like an eskimo without an igloo

Should we blame the captain?
Should we blame the crew?
Or the VPs who cut the fuel budget too?
Heck, no!

Blame Canada!
Air Canada!

With all their hockey hullabaloo
And that loser Harper too!

Blame Canada!
Shame Air Canada for…

The dirt we must avert
The excess we must redress
The despair and woe, out it all must go
We must blame them and cause a fuss
Before somebody thinks of blaming us!

* They Break Guitars!** Before you tell me Air Canada Rouge is technically not Air Canada, as they are a (wholly owned) subsidiary, ask yourself if the average person is going to know that.
