I'm sorry, but I've seen more people without teeth and sporting mullets in their metallica t-shirts than on any other airline. I'm not insulting the intellegence or refinement of the crew, (well, SW crew aren't refined in their services, but I think that is more of a company policy as a "fun" airlines, and I do find the cabin crew very amuzing and fun, and a lot more lighthearted and less business minded), but some of those people that fly SW indeed are different than what you'd find in Business on AA. A with regards to United......I dunno about trashy, but damn there are some bitchy people that work at that airline. Quotes from UA gate agents when I got stranded on my way to Hong Kong, well, not stranded, but UA cancelled my flight from OKC-DEN which made me miss my DEN-LAX connection, which made me miss my LAX-HKG. I made this trip because I wanted to fly on the 747 for the first time in my life. It had been my dream since I was a little kid. They were gonna put me on an AC A340 out of YVR. "Sir if you want to get to Hong Kong today, then we aren't going to worry about how you get there or what airline its on." "Oh he's back, the guy that wants to get to HK." "If you aren't sure what you want to do then why are you standing here before me?" Finally I just said in a calm voice, "Ma'am, if you are having a bad day, I appreciate that and am sorry for that, but please try and treat me with the respect and decency im giving you." She left and sent out another agent who was very nice and understoond, and even giggle when I told her why I REALLY wanted to be on UA's 744.
