Do they actually think up ways to piss off their customers?
Don't blame the CBC for this one. Swoop should have booked all of these pax on another carrier, per their tariff!
This isn't a "get what you pay for, either". Discount might be discount, but it's still a paid contract for a service.

"Radek Romanowski got his cancellation notice the evening before his July 8 return flight from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to Hamilton. A second email that night informed him that he was rebooked to fly on July 15 — one week later.
That didn't work for the small business owner who needed to return home to Komoka, Ont., for work. But he couldn't call Swoop to complain — because it was Sunday and the call centre was closed. He did send an email, but received no reply."
"Kevin Blenkhorn found out his Swoop flight was cancelled when he and his wife showed up at the Hamilton airport on July 7 to take their return flight to Edmonton.
"I was not happy," said Blenkhorn who lives in Fort Saskatchewan, Alta. Swoop had rebooked him on a flight that departed six days later, but Blenkhorn needed to get home immediately to return to his mining job.
He found a flight leaving the next morning on WestJet — Swoop's owner — totalling $1,462 for two last-minute tickets. He was surprised that WestJet wouldn't waive the cost.
"I called WestJet and they said, 'Well, we really don't have anything to do with [Swoop].'"
Apply public pressure when a problem is ignored, and company behaviour improves dramatically.
I can't imagine the morale at Westjet these days.........
