    Open Season for Airlines

    Looks like another "incident" recently on an American Airlines flight. Apparently the very angry flight attendant in the video (he shows up about half-way through) "violently" took a stroller from the crying Mom and hit her with it nearly missing the baby. Some passengers had some choice words. The captain clearly knows that he is about to be on national TV and keeps his cool.

    Open Season for Airlines

    If they just provided complimentary bong hits before takeoff, these incidents would disappear overnight.

    Other than the fact that employees don't actually slaughter passengers, airline travel is the human equivalent of any beef or pork packing plant. I have no sympathy for the airlines or their employees who are the rudest group of people on Earth.

    Moo/Oink! Not for me. And unless it can't be avoided, I'm not sure why anyone voluntarily gets on a commercial airplane.

    if the woman had simply gate checked her double wide stroller, as asked and as documented in AA's policies, this would never have happened.

    doesn't excuse the behavior of the AA employee tho
    shit happens, wear a helmet.

    How else are you going to get to snowbird at an affordable price.

    The only bad experience I have had is with a polish airline.

    The crew on our Southwest flights were extra nice on Friday.

    Flights to and Zurich were okay on Delta considering the leg room or lack of. One attendant was bit of an ass about the food. Wife is alllergic to eggplant and she asked if there was any. He nonchalantly brushed it off. There was eggplant in it.

    I rather like the idea of an airline that has zero tolerance for the boorish behavior of their rude, self-absorbed, entitled and cheap passengers. I am a bit worried that I might end up on the news shoving some stroller, bicycle or backpack down the throat one of those same passengers on the subway someday. Probably the same people who leave their skis on the ground in front of the lodge, too.
