Im still insisting on the "coat hanger incident" whereby an F/A on UAL shoved one under the noses of three people by the windows on a 777 in order to close the shades one of the rudest things I have ever seen. No "sorry, could you lower your shade (and explain why)" a la VS
, or "excuse me" even, just shoved it past people. Was really weird to see this thing sneaking past you. She also threw something at my then-bf- an apple I think. That woman was nasty- ill never fly UAL again i swear.
One other one- I was moving back to Las Vegas from London and had almost everything I owned in the world in one big bike box and a huge suitcase- I knew I was going to be overweight in LAX
at my stopover, so I called HP
before I left London to check the cost to make sure I had the money. They said at reservations it would b $50 per overweight case, and the website confirmed this. I get to LAX
and the guy told me it was going to be $75. I bitched loudly ( i was emotional and tired by this point) and said I had just checked two other sources, so what the hell was he on about. He relented way too easily- almost in a "i was only joking" way, which really ticked me off. This was back in 2000 though when HP
apparently was having problems. I still fly them today, however, and always have an excellent experience on them!
