In a perfect world yes, but neither is this the fault of the companies that assemble the air systems. By offering you a cheap replacement bottle, they are likely to end up out of pocket themselves. They have already paid GCI for the bottles that they bought in good faith and are now willing to sell you a better bottle at a fraction of it's over the counter price. OK, the cost of the GCI bottles that have already been sold to customers is covered, but any air systems that have yet to be sold, and now of course can't be, translates directly to lost revenue for the air system company.

The blame for this lies entirely with the bottle manufacturer, not with the air system companies, but where the air system companies have responded to the issue, and are trying to make things as good as they can, there does not appear to have been any immediate response from GCI.

It isn't the best possible situation, but you have to realise that the air system manufacturers are as much a victim of this as their customers are.
It's just like a battle zone, you got a bottle and you're on your own.
Gotta be a Scotch or a Kamikaze, none of those other weapons will faze me.

Hundred, hundred, hundred bottles on the wall, you wonder if you can drink them all.
Got to go home by 1am, the bottle wins the battle again.
