    , but I'll tell ya' Edd, that so-called Dr., on the United flight, certainly deserved a complimentary meeting with my/someone's fist as he flopped.....no matter how screwed up the United reservation system is......and the rest of the brain dead passengers were probably complaining about prices all the way to their destinations while the good Doctor was phoning his lawyers for the upcoming lawsuit....

    The spokesperson for management is never an unoccupied position...
    ..but the latest incident was clearly over the top...

    i flew delta this week round trip to denver (from NY)

    no problems but what they've done with the bathrooms is ridiculous. i don't see how an average sized man could take a dump in the new tiny closets they call a bathroom.

    i'm 5'7" on a good day and not skinny but not a fat slob (yet). i could barely turn around in the bathroom. made a comment to the flight attendant (who agreed that it was crazy small) and he told me that some people have to back in because the dimensions are so small.
    shit happens, wear a helmet.

    I look back on pre 9/11 travel as the glory days. Often get entire rows to yourself to enjoy the free meal on a 1 hr shuttle.

    I read about some incident at Spirit in Ft Lauderdale. And how bad their ratings are, etc etc... have to say - I flew Spirit red eye back from Vegas Sunday night, and flew them there and back 1.5 years ago - and I don't mind them. If you can get past the nickel and diming (just add $70 to total, what's the big deal) and dont buy anything onboard. But all 3 flights went off on time and arrived on time. Sunday night we left the gate and on runway we cruised by about 10 other planes waiting to take off. Have no idea why - but Spirit seemed to have air traffic clout lol. I avoid airplane bathrooms at all costs - but had to use one. Not huge but had to be the cleanest best stocked bathroom I've seen. Flight attendants nice. And the seats seemed even more spacious than United - no recline - but also no head in your lap. But why oh why must employees be so rude at the counters? Why Do they hire people without smile muscles? Or are we passengers so nasty they can't stop themselves? Or most likely...leadership sucks and it makes employees miserable wretches because they know they have to work there regardless of what the idiots in charge due.

    And yes, I never need to go to Vegas again in my life. Customer service there is also pretty shitty. Stopped in Denver on way out - first time ever and those mts looked delicious.

    I'm an only child military brat latchkey kid. I was partially raised by a television set in the 70s and 80s. Mr Rogers Neighborhood, Little House on the Prairie, MASH, Good Times, The Jeffersons, even the friggin Brady Bunch had honest to God good lessons to be taught about tolerance. It's amazing to me that someone could live through that era watching those shows and come away with a different message.

    Racism was less in the 90s when the prevailing attitude was to treat people as individuals instead of members of variously oppressed groups.

    IMO, this is "Bread and Circuses" applied in its different forms by seeing if they can apply the race card . It is in the best interest of the group of people who formulated this racism outrage even when there is none to begin with.
    I rather be @ss noodling
