Organizer of Canadian Party Flight Says Passengers Are Still Stranded
The organizer of the Canadian party flight says passengers are still stranded in Mexico, and he understands why millions — including PM Justin Trudeau — are pissed off.
James Awad, the founder of 111 Private Club — who put the trip together — says everyone was tested for COVID prior to getting on the flight, and the only travelers on that plane were from his group … he chartered an entire Sunwing Airline plane solely for the event.
Awad states, “As I thoroughly reviewed the current situation, I understand why many fellow citizens are upset about the current situation.”
He goes on to explain he’s worked tirelessly to try to get passengers back to Canada, discussing a plan with the airline which included no food or beverage service, masks, no standing in the aisles as well as proof of a negative PCR test.

However, Awad said he couldn’t come to an agreement with Sunwing because he felt passengers would need a meal on the 5-hour flight. Awad says he’s attempted to charter a plane from other airlines but is also hitting a wall.
As we reported, the flight — from Montreal to Mexico filled with Canadian partiers featured vaping, open container drinking and loud music.
Canadian PM called the event a “slap in the face” to citizens who had followed the rules and worked to try and stay healthy.
To that, Awad says, “I have significantly learned, and I am still learning from this experience. Learning from them is what makes the difference.”
