This is the tweet that elicited the somehow angry response.
Air Canada’s authorized Twitter account replied, asking for the passenger’s flight number.
Air Canada pilot Yannick Charland tweeted back, “It’s a red alert. Ground staff not allowed to work due to lightning in the area. You just flew across the country in four hours. Shut it.”
Mr. Charland, declined to comment on his tweet. He said only “I better not. I’ll get in trouble.” His tweet has since been deleted.
And the end of story
