Airline asks two strangers to share hotel room with one bed after missing flight

Airline asks two strangers to share hotel room with one bed after missing flightAn airline has been asked to apologise after offering two strangers who had missed their flights an overnight stay in a room with a single bed.Elizabeth Coffi Tabu, 71, had been due to return to Paris on 19 July after spending a month with her family in Canada.However, when she missed the second leg of her journey from Montreal after her first flight was delayed, she was offered an overnight stay with another passenger – a 35-year-old man she had never met before.Speaking to CNN, Coffi Tabu’s daughter Jerryne Mahele Nyota said: “My mother told the Air Canada agent, 'I don't know this man. We are not a couple,' – but they said there was only one room.”She added that her mother, who makes the trip out to North America every year, struggled to make her connection as she was currently a wheelchair user following a run of cancer treatment.Upon discovering the room only had a single bed for them to sleep in, the man offered to spend the night on the sofa.Ms Mahele Nyota added: "He was a perfect gentleman but I obviously felt uncomfortable with my mom spending a night with a man half her age, a man that's a total stranger."After several hours Ms Mahele Nyota was able to arrange for another hotel room for her mother, who received two $ 10 (£8) food vouchers for her flight and a seat with additional leg room from the airline after explaining her ordeal.She was returned to Paris almost 24 hours after her scheduled arrival time.Mahele Nyota has since called on the airline to apologise, and expressed concern that vulnerable people unable to ask for help could be left in the same situation as her mother.She told Canadian broadcaster CBC: “Now [my mother is] realising, how is it possible? You know? And she said, 'It's not fair, it's not fair, they never gave me another option.'"In a statement an Air Canada spokesperson said: “It is not our policy to have passengers who are not travelling together share a room. In this case an error was initially made allocating rooms.”

It took two minutes for Taco Bell to sell out its new hotel, because people are weird

It took two minutes for Taco Bell to sell out its new hotel, because people are weirdTaco Bell fans are apparently so addicted to the brand of the Mexican fast food chain, that not only do they patronize its locations on the regular for artery-clogging tacos and nachos. The company also felt that the brand has enough of a following that it decided to open a Taco Bell Hotel this August in Palm Spring, Calif. It will be a very real hotel and resort that's infused with the brand via everything from a gift shop that sells Taco Bell-themed clothes to Taco Bell-inspired rooms and even a salon that offers Taco Bell-inspired art.Most improbable of all, reservations for the new hotel opened today. And sold out in just two minutes.If you head to the new hotel's website, you'll be greeted with the following message: "You just missed it! All of our rooms are SOLD OUT. But you can still be a part of the experience from home." And fans are then encouraged to sign up to stay on top of hotel-related updates, exclusive merchandise and more from The Bell Hotel.Again, all that for a Taco Bell-themed hotel. What is the world coming to?There was, in fact, so much demand when reservations opened on Thursday that problems started showing up less than a minute into the process. Per CNBC, the hotel's website quickly got overwhelmed by the demand, with some users being greeted by a message apologizing for "higher than normal traffic" and telling them to "keep your crossed fingers on that refresh button."Making this even more extraordinary, Taco Bell's hotel will have a very short existence. It's really just taking over the V Palm Springs hotel and will only be open from August 8 through August 12. The nightly price of its rooms starts at $ 169.In a statement about the overwhelming fan reaction to the idea of a Taco Bell hotel, the chain's chief global brand officer Marisa Thalberg had this to say: "Taco Bell fans are truly one of a kind and today was one of the best expressions of that fandom yet."
