True enough. It turned out to be a blast but it was pretty tough calling my boss and telling him that the next flight out was 2.5 days later - especially since it's my last week of work (I start a new job on Monday).
The plane never left Vancouver, and of course they don't replace it so with only a couple of flights out of Vegas every day Westjet took over two days to get everybody home. My buddy going back to Vancouver with Air Canada got out Monday morning.
And Westjet doesn't offer compensation for weather related delays, even if it takes over two days to get home. Got to spend some quality time in the Calgary airport though. The Tim Horton's is thankfully 24 hours.
