    Now that is unreal. I cannot believe that a flight attendant would look at two boarding passes with the same seat and not address the issue. WTF.

    I think it shows that United has a work culture issue. Employees don't feel empowered to resolve issues or take ownership of a problem.

    Sorry but the standby passenger should have been told to leave. He was a total @$$hole for staying as well.

    That is one of the most confusing pieces IMO. Flying standby usually means you are somehow related or affiliated with the airline, right? Especially when it is a toddler... like come on...

    Yeah this is one of the worst examples I'm aware of.

    I don't blame her for pursuing further compensation.

    This is terrifying. Makes me never want to fly over the ocean again.

    I really have no desire to ever fly in a commercial airplane again. There is nowhere I need to go so badly that I would subject myself to the behaviors of airline employees or passengers. That said, good on the flight attendants for beating and hog tying this asshole.

    I'll drive/train it thanks.

    I feel the same way. Unfortunately my folks retired to Florida several years ago, so I head down about once every other year. If I had more free time, I'd just drive for my visits. I've also had to fly for work related purposes about a half dozen times a year in recent years. My dislike for air travel is a big part of the reason why I haven't made much of an effort to head back out west to ski in the past 15 years.

    That's the great part of living in New England or NY for that matter. You really don't have to fly anywhere to experience most all of what you could ever want to do except for experiencing international culture. Canada offers that experience some, but it's still America. Mountains, lakes, remote rivers, ocean beaches, great big or small cities; it's all right here within a few hours drive away.
