OK, so I was at http://www.planetfeedback.com
and I'm looking at all of the airline shared letters. And some of the passengers on that site are plumb crazy. They come up with the stupidest reasons to get mad at an airline.
One schmuck wrote a letter about how she needs food and WN doesn't provide food. "Have you ever given your child juice for breakfast?" No, I haven't. I know that WN doesn't give out anything on their flights.
Another person wrote a letter about how she was SO angry at how the airlines didn't accomodate her due to weather delays. God! As if they can control for that!
Another idiot writes about how TWA has a small seat pitch and that it was SO uncomfortable for her 6' husband. Gee, ya think they don't already know that!
And it never ceases to amaze me how people blame the airline for affecting situations the airline is not responsible for due to conditions that the airline cannot control! Oh, they made me spend hours in a terminal with my bratty children! Oh, I missed two hours worth of vacation time. Oh, the weather was so bad, and they refused to give me a rental car! Oh, give me a break!
I know airlines make us mad. But we can't come into situations with big chips on our shoulders waiting for the airlines to roll out the red carpet.
The worst part is that these idiots want totally unreasonable amounts of compensation. They want first class upgrades. They want total refunds. These morons make it bad for the rest of us. They drain the patience of the customer service people. They discredit the frequent flyers who go on so many trips by devaluing the suffering that only true airline incompetence can inflict.
I would have no problem if, instead of receiving vouchers in the mail, these idiots got packets with Greyhound tickets and letters telling them that if they don't like it they ought to take the bus. Or if they got joke vouchers that were only valid for trips to Shangri-La or Airline Passenger Heaven.
Shout out with me!
