Ya anybody that eats clothing has gotta be a tool. Just wearing holiday stuff, meh not so much.

On a related note, i drink a gallon of eggnog so i can fart mistletoe. My fellow crew loves it. Tis the season to spread some holliday cheer.

And for the win ...

Updated statement: Customers removed for disruptive behavior | Delta News Hub

Looks like the hustler's latest publicity stunt didn't go as planned.

That's the thing that drives me nuts in these incidents.

They pull somebody off of a flight because of disruptive behavior, and/or the crew has a legitimate security concern -- and then they turn around and book the perp on another flight!

Sometimes only an hour or so later!

And what are the chances that anybody informs the new crew that is inheriting the screwball of his or her previous incident?

Like when the agents will let a pax board who is obviously falling-down drunk, against the regulations.

They just want that person out of their hair. Let the flight crew deal with it.

Not surprising a majority of these "hate crimes" are hoaxes.

Sadly, I got another one, from just this morning.

Scenario: We're sitting near the gate at an outstation, waiting for our flow window into our hub to open up.

Anyhow, we're facing a 3-hour delay. A passenger comes up to us and quite aggressively asks, "How long is this delay going to be? This is ridiculous!! I have an international connection!" We're used to this sort of stuff, so we patiently explain why flow control exists, how we're frequently in touch with the company and ATC to see if there's a chance for an earlier window, and so forth. We're patient and apologetic, just like you'd expect.

This doesn't satisfy the passenger. She starts the usual rant about inconvenience, delays, how this late flight will ruin her life, etc. Of course, we continue to apologize, etc....

Wait for it...

wait for it...

Finally she storms off in a huff, but not before declaring "Next time I'm going to buy a ticket instead of non-revving!!"

I wish I was making this up. I really, really do.


PS The flight after ours was cancelled, so we took all of the revenue pax from that flight that we could fit. No non-revs made it on board.

Looks like karma paid Ms. Entitlement Mentality a cruel visit!
