>>If you check Mom or Dad's employment contract, assuming it's a parent of yours that works for an airline,<<
No, I was the one who workED for them.
>>Sounds like you're a spoiled brat kid of somebody who works hard to give you those privileges.<<
No, I was the one who was at work at 7am to start my day.
>>I hate it when people with your attitude travel, and I certainly won't go out of my way for a nonrev like you.<<
My attitude is that the passes are a RIGHT, as long as I have a positive relation with my employer. Now if I DON'T have a positive relation with my employer, then they have a RIGHT to take away my passes and my employment for that matter.
To be frank, I can't understand why any airline would take away your passes and still keep you as an employee. If you (or whoever gave you your buddy passes) did something that bad to have your passes taken away, then you should be fired.
>>If you work at a gas station, do you expect free gas? If you work at a bank, do you expect free money? If you work for an auto dealership, should they give you a free car?<<
It depends, did they TELL you in the interview that you will be eligible for that, or did they WRITE that in a job ad? Did they make it clear to you during the ENTIRE process that you will receive
Speaking with an HR person, she said that pass benefits are a way for an airline to compete with other companies while offering lower salaries.
Now wouldn't you be very dissapointed if you turned down a high paying job, in order to get travel passes, then being told the passes are not available? That's kind of like a company saying that your salary will be offered $60,000, then after you sign your contract, you buy your BMW, and your company says your salary has been changed to $30,000, wouldn't you be mad?
>>I never take them for granted.<<
You act like I'm the one who makes a scene after being denied First Class, or expects to be issued First Class while wearing shorts and a t-shirt. Nothing could be farther from the truth, I always sat there and waited patiently for my name to be announced.
BTW, How is non-revving now, do you still use Travel line?
