I hate a lot. I hate M$, BillG, Intel, That Other OS, things that don’t work, stuff like that. Today, I saw how United Airlines treats passengers and operates more like a criminal gang than a proper business. I don’t like that. I think everyone who pays for a ticket has a proper contract with United and United should do their level best to fulfill the contract, even if some of their employees want to fly to Louisville to go to work, especially if so. I mean, would the world end if four of United’s employees missed a flight? Would the world end if they were hung over and couldn’t fly? Would the world end if they were in a severe collision on the way to the airport? What’s the difference then when the problem is United OVERBOOKING the flight?
I was only on one overbooked flight ever in my life. I had just received the job-offer to go to work in Saudi Arabia and wanted to propose to TLW that we marry and have our honeymoon in Saudi… I wasn’t going to take some money to take a later flight… In the event, TLW made me wait a day or so anyway, but that’s besides the story. This poor guy did nothing wrong but book a flight on United. He shouldn’t have been assaulted and kidnapped because of that.
I think everyone should check their itineraries to make sure United flies only their dead-heading employees until they go bankrupt.
