Airline Complaints-usually Not The Airline'sfault?

Wed Aug 02, 2000 11:26 pm

I have friends and cousins and after every flight, they complain to me that the service was bad and the flight attendant did this and that and the plane was delayed because of weather and yadayadayada.
- weather, that is no ones fault and I have been delayed because of weather, and they would rather not have you flying through a hurricane and risk your life, face it, if there is bad weather, i would rather be delayed than risk 100+ lives and put them in danger, so if I were the complainers,I would shut up since it isn't the airline's friggin fault that there was a very bad rain storm, you should be thanking the airline for not putting your life in danger!
flight attendants-give the airline his/her name, don't go and blame the airline for one flight attendant that was being rude or did not give you a cookie. if anything, there is probably another passenger(s) that is pissing her off for what ever they are doing,
mechanical delays-I am double sided on that one, A-the airline should have either found it when the airplane was at it's hub or B- it was urgent, i am flexible about the urgent ones as while going LGW-DFW, on an AA MD-11, just when we were in line for takeoff, and we were next, the pilot discovered an engine problem than we had to taxi back to the gate and get it repaired, but than we lost our slot over the atlantic and than we had to wait another 1hr,30 min, i would rather lose a slot over the atlantic than crash over the atlantic.
lost luggage-blame airline or airport
meal service-talk to the airline
spills-don't complain to the airline about it, it was probably your fault it happened, i spilled a sprite on a flight DFW-LGA, and did I complain to AA, nope, i just asked for a bunch of napkins and my pants were dry 15 minutes before we landed.
so guys get mature and shut up about how bad airline's are, usually it's not their fault that you wet your pants or whatever it may be, for a delay, I would rather get delayed 5 hours than crash. if there is something major with the meal that is wrong(Kosher,etc) complain to the airline or order it earlier and look at the airline's guidelines. C'MON, the airlines are getting picked at for things that weren't their fualt, replies more than welcomed

and also the press just picks and picks on airlines and on reports, they have said things that are not true and accurate, other than having it been originally aired a while back. the press needs to go critisize other things, like about drugs in sports and players demanding outreagous salaries when they have little or no talent.

I'm glad someone made this post...I would have a long time ago but why waste time trying make simple people understand.

What I find most amusing is people complaining about food service. Why is it that everytime someone gets on a plane they expect a meal! Your are not paying for a meal when you get a ticket. Even when they get on a 2-3 hour flight you hear "all I got were peanuts!" SO? You can't go without eating for 2 hours? IF it's an early morning flight it would be nice to be served a breakfast but the airline doesn't have to. That's my opinion ofcourse... meal service should be served if only on long haul flights...and maybe east-west coast flights here in the US...but if you are traveling between LA-SEA or NY-MIA a cookie or peanuts should do...it is only 2 1/2 hours, if you need to eat more ...bring your own.

Weather delays complaints...ok airlines control that... didn't you know? Whatever!

Like you said Blink....

PEOPLE grow up and shut up. NOTHING is perfect.

Thanks very much for making that post. It is nice to see that someone understands that everything is not "our fault." Everyone has seen how bad the weather has been bad this year and it is really messing up at ATC system. Trust me....its not making our jobs much easier. Some of you bitchers and complainers...try standing on our side of that counter day in and day out and getting yelled at and screamed at for nothing we have no control over. What the hell do you want me to do....stand over by Chicago and tell all the storm clouds to make sure they go around ORD? I realize all inconvienences are not due to weather...but lately thats what it has been and we cant do anything!!!!! Sunday in Chicago they got hit with a very severe storm and had a Tornado and they evacuated the ATC tower and closed the airport. But yet still......I managed to get bitched at for it! Hmmm maybe you people wanna go sit in a Tower 320feet up with 80knot winds? Cmon people give us a break here......were trying our damndest to get you where your going....so work with us and not against us.

Hey..at least you didnt have one of the pax walk into a corner next to the podium and decide to water the daisies. We had one pax a few weeks ago who was so fed up he just tinkled away full force until security hauled his ass away.
