I am wondering if any of you know websites that are specifically designed just to show how bad an airline is... I know there is one for United, named Untied.com http://www.untied.com and i believe there is one against Tower Air , but i am not sure if it still exists, and i dont know the URL. Please post any other websites like untied.com that you know of. thanks.
life wasn't worth the balance, or the crumpled paper it was written on

I'm in agreement with Surf.
People bit*h moan and whine about how this or that airline just RUINED my vacation. Nevermind that they GOT me where I was going, the complaints are endless. Nowadays it's delays. "I spent 5 Hours waiting in line at JFK to takeoff on my trip to LAX". Perhaps those people who complain the loudest ought to be put in a car to DRIVE from NYC to LA. Maybe after 6 hours in the car, as they are just getting to Ohio, they can look up and the the plane that could have "held them hostage" for 5 hours back in New York. Four hours later, as they cross the Indiana state line, they can take comfort in knowing that some clown who's stepping off that plane in LA most likely has a lost bag. Along about Kansas City, when those "hostages" are waking up to begin the day in LA, our complainer will be looking for a cheap hotel. TWO DAYS later, when our complainer enters the Los Angeles City Limits, the business passengers from that "hostage" flight are most likely heading to the airport to return home.
yeah, nothings perfect, but flying on a plane sure beats driving, delays and all.

Perhaps the airlines should just place a large asterisk by departure times on monitors and in the timetables. Down at the bottom, write, "Possibly."
I disagree with the above messages. I think it's understood that airlines should get one to his/her destination safely. It's called "poor service" if airlines write down a specific departure time and arrival time, and fail to meet those criteria on a CONSISTENT basis.
