Did the passengers get stranded at the sky airport, or made to disembark in the sky?

If so, then post a link to that thread. I searched but didn't find it.

And yes, it is sick humour. Announcing 133 people to be dead is not so much fun. And btw, it ain't no 737 on that pic.

yes, they also say two DL 747s collided in midair during a flight consolidation, but of course DL doesn't fly the 747.

ejecting 6 overbooked passengers over the allegheny mountains is funny though.

and the fact the airline quotes don't show remorse for the loss of life, on the inconvenience to pax.

part of the point of the article is to point out that flight delays and cancelations aren't the end of the world, as there are worse things, like crashing.

Or as one comedian pointed out: "You're flying. It's a miracle. So shut the fuck up."

I agree it is one of the best. I laughed out loud the whole way through, as it's written like a business newspaper article rather than a sensationalist tabloid, despite the loss of 133 lives.

Hmmm, being humorous on other people's account may be appropriate at times, but in the case where so many deaths are concerned, I find it extremely disrespectful, especially to those family/friends who are trying to deal with their loss. I'm actually not familiar with "the onion" so after reading the first couple lines, i thought it was a serious situation. Just sad the extent to which people would go in order to get a few laughs. Pathetic.

And my uncle's cousin's daughter's friend's grandmother had a drinking problem, so I don't want to hear any more "people walk into a bar"-jokes, damnit!

What's really disrespectful is how grieving family members demand that the rest of the world should stop for them. Isn't it preferable that at least someone gets some entertainment out of a tragedy? A death and a laugh are better than just a death, imho.

That said, 99% of The Onion's articles aren't funny at all, and it's even more annoying when people think it's appropriate to litter serious boards' frontpages with them.

Went over your head obviously.

Onion is all about bad taste, but if you read the tone of the article and the matter of fact nature, it speaks directly to the complaints aviation enthusiasts have about real newspapers, how they sensationalize trivial matters.

We can all agree that normal newspapers do this, right?

Well the Onion was showing what happens if the tables are turned. They trivialize a sensational matter, like a business report rather than a newspaper showing concern for humanity. Much of business writing is devoid of compassion.

That in itself is brilliant satire that many of you seem to be missing.

Add to it the skewering of DL and their financial issues, and the customer unfriendly policies of the industry in general, and the article is clever.

Planes crash in movies, cops get shot in movies, buildings explode in movies, people are raped in movies.

Should we not have anything depicting tragedy in any form of entertainment, serious or satire, so that we don't offend? Give me a freaking break.

Wrong.

Death has happened to all of us. If we aren't dead yet, we've all lost friends and or loved ones in various ways, be they from terminal disease, accident, violence, etc. We've all been maimed or injured, emotionally or physically.

Yet the world of literature, art, and plain tasteless entertainment is full of references to death and tragedy, misfortune and mayhem.

It is human nature to make light of things, to deal with them.

And at some point, we must move on.

I highly doubt that anyone posting their "concerns" has had a friend or loved one die in a plane crash in the last year, let alone a fictional plane crash as a result of an "in-flight cancelation" or "flight consolidation".

But we've all read and seen news reports sensationalizing emergency landings and airport fender benders as if thousands died.

Please gain some perspective.

It's a jewel of irony.

Among my favorite lines: "While Delta officials are blaming the cancellation on financial troubles, other problems, such as high fuel costs and bad weather"

That way to explain every problem by high gas prices is unfortunately widespread, not only in airline industry. I would say, shut up, and come back when you're energy-efficient!!! After all, DL still fly 732s...
And bad weather... Weather also always explains everything. Mmmmhhh I love that!!!! Once I have been stranded in YUL due to "bad weather" according to the airline (US Airways). It was in January, it was snowing (we are talking about YUL, so what?), temperature was -11 C (again, we are in YUL, so that was warm). And the engines of our brand new ERJ which has spent the night in YUL were not starting!!!!! Two hours of delay (spent sitting on the plane!). Missed connection. Rather frustrating since every single aircraft around us was leaving on time... The way US handled that little crisis in CLT was pathetic and extremely unprofessional... It was about like if that had never happened to them before...


"When we're forced to bump passengers from a moving airplane, we always offer meal vouchers or SkyMiles credits."

Since when is there food on DL domestic flights????

Too bad they don't talk about what happens to the luggage in this case...

"Delta Airlines regrets any inconvenience to our valued customers,"

Indeed customers as a whole are always valued on pre-recorded messages, but the way they deal with individual customers is another issue.
When I doubt... go running!

I would resent them trying to alter everyone's life though. This is how some pretty bad law gets pushed through, frankly.

And the people offended didn't have this bad thing happen to them. Further, this isn't even about a real incident. It's just mocking the industry, especially bankrupt airlines.

"Dr. Strangelove" came out only 20 or so years after WW2, and in that film the whole world is obliterated by nuclear bombs for satirical purpose. They even included real footage of bombs going off. Should that film not have been made because there were still those alive who were effected by Hiroshima and Nagasaki?

There was a whole south park about this topic, of when is it okay to joke about tragedy (in that case, AIDS). They determined it was 20 years.

As for air travel, we have Airplane and Airplane 2, various cartoons and other movies that make light of plane crashes. It's not taboo. You may not find it funny, but don't censor it.

For those of you that think it's stupid, don't read it and don't complain about it.

"In addition to decapitation and paralysis, some consumer advocates have complained that the neckbelt safety devices inhibit side-to-side motion of the head, causing drivers to swerve wildly back and forth in order to maintain a clear view of the street. Other negative side effects cited include difficulty in breathing, eating and talking."

I'm sure the picture was just chosen at random. I agree that claiming 133 people dead is rather tasteless... whatever.

I thought the article is hilarious. People made jokes about Katrina, and people made jokes about 9/11. And heck, some of them are really funny. Lighten up, sheesh. Just because a bad event happened, doesn't mean we have to look back on it with a frown.

We have to wait until 2021 for that one.

As far as flying is concerned, gliding accidents got funny in 1908, 20 years after Otto Lillienthal bought the farm with his glider, and powered flight accidents got funny in 1928, 20 years after Wilbur Wright became the first victim while doing a passenger flight demo in front of the US military.

But of course, one year later, nothing was really funny anymore...
