Greyhound Linesbus delay cost me another airline fare

Review updated:

This is regarding a case that I have already opened with one of the greyhounds's customer service agents . The case # 271542 which is in the name of Ziad kablawi, bus itinerary #[protected] travelling from London, Ontario to Toronto Pearson airport .

Unfortunately, the bus couldn't make it on time. It was supposed to arrive at 12:30 pm, but was delayed 1 whole hour. I arrived at 1:30 pm to the airport . Upon arrival I was told that the baggage check- in has closed because of the bus's delay in arriving on time . I had to buy another ticket .The first ticket cost me $600. After begging the airline agent to give me a discount because the delay was not in my hands, she was kind enough to bring it down to $210.

Now as a frustrated customer, I was told by one of their agents that I should expect a bus ticket refund ( worth $50)and not an airline ticket refund because the bus arrival time is only a time frame . Does that make sense? I would understand a delay of 15-20 mts - not one whole hour . They want me to hold full responsibility for the airline fare charges .

I am writing to you with full expectations that I get a full airline ticket refund of $210. The reason i chose to ride with greyhound was to save on long-term parking charges otherwise I would have driven all the way with my car to Toronto.

Hoping to hear some good news from your side

Best regards,
Ziad kablawi

    Delays happen all the time. It was your fault for buying a ticket that left you no time if something went wrong. Purchase a ticket with an earlier arrival next time.
