Standby [124/365] - Thanks to my amazing gay "husband" Bryan the flight attendant, I fly for incredibly low prices with WestJet airline. That was the only way it was possible for me to fly out to Ontario to see family this weekend. The only drawback? All travel is standby, meaning if somebody else wants your seat and is willing to pay full fare, you aren't getting on that flight! I've never had a problem in the past, normally there are quite a few empty seats and I've never had to change my plans. So of course it would happen in the Hamilton Airport, a tiny quiet airport with 5 gates and probably no more than 15 departures daily, that I'd find myself faced with the possibility of being bumped from my flight. Upon check in, I was informed that the flight was full and given a standby boarding pass, meaning that I could wait at the gate and cross my fingers that a seat would become available. There was another problem though, as there were 3 other standby guest who were waiting before me, and therefore would get the first available seats. I was convinced that I was going to be stranded in Hamilton until the next flight to Calgary 11 hours later. The plane was fully boarded and I was the only standby who has been unfortunate enough to make it on when the customer service agent called out to me informing me that there was one seat left! I sat in the middle seat between 2 quite large men, a bit squished, but I was thankful that I made it on the flight and home safely! Thank you, passenger, whoever you are... for missing your flight and so kindly giving me your seat!!
