Air Canada's Media Relations' Email Fail
Air Canada's media relations is in hot water after the team accidentally emailed the wrong message to the press. CBS TV in San Francisco contacted the airline about claims that the airline's handlers lost a dog at SFO on Monday after his flight was delayed. Air Canada claims that the dog ran away. The local news team inquired about the airline's procedures and received an email from Air Canada's spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick urging his colleagues to ignore the media request. "I think I would just ignore, it is local news doing a story on a lost dog. Their entire government is shut down and about to default and this is how the US media spends its time," he wrote in the email that he mistakenly sent back to the airline.
