Lasolimu: CBR ME ASAP:How do you know that the geese could not have been avoided?

Geese are agile animals in the air whereas a plane is not. Also geese are small and there is no way the pilot could know they were there and that he needed to do something to avoid them. Also, the geese were not stationary, they were in motion making it so the pilot could not predict their motions. It is quite clear that avoiding the geese was not a simple option.


But... but... Lasolimu... CBR has never hit a goose while he's playing X Plane 8.0 between posts! It can't really be any harder in real life!!! ;~)

CBR ME ASAP:
I don't think anyone is trying to get rich. These people get free upgrades for a YEAR???? For most of them that probably means NO FREE UPGRADES because they won't be flying this year. If that's the case they might feel like it would have been better for USAir to just say sorry and be done with it, but free upgrades for a year probably reeks of a publicity stunt to some.


You do realise that this was an airliner right? Not an F18 with Maverick at the helm? Avoid the geese!

How did I start my last post? "People are saying". Show me where I said that I was there and knew for a fact. Oh, I didn't? You're excused. I love how you attempt to castigate me for coming to my conclusion without evidence but then go straight in to admitting that you know what the passengers are thinking. Nice work.

It has often been stated that bird strike caused the accident. The parts of birds recovered from the engines seem to bear that up. I'm going to pre-emptively believe that this is the case, like most people do.

The passengers who are complaining, such as the chump oft-quoted in TFT, seem to think that they DESERVE more than they got, which in this case was their lives. They don't deserve more and if they don't think that participating in a publicity stunt for a company who provided the means for them to walk away from the crash with their lives is worthwhile then they can STFU and boycott. Seriously, bollocks to them.

joethorne.: How exactly was this crash the fault of US Airways? Are they supposed to be able to control geese?

You got 5 grand, future expense claims, and some good faith flights. Americans might be the only people in existence who feel they're owed something from an unavoidable accent.

nearscentedhound: CBR ME ASAP: nearscentedhound: Ding Dong Seven: Seeing that this was not the fault of the airline, they don't deserve jack shiat. If they'd all died, their families wouldn't have deserved jack shiat. There's no such thing as being 100% safe. If the pilot had been drunk, or if the airline had failed to maintain the plane, sure. But they cannot control every goose that skeets around out there - if you insist on pointing fingers, the airport itself would be the ones to biatch at.

It's called life, assholes.

How long till we have someone shiat themselves because of turbulence, and end up demanding free upgrades for life, and a $100 million?

Assholes. I have no sympathy. Put the bastards on a kamikaze plane and crash it into a sewage plant.

A plane load of THIS!

You two sound very intelligent. I bet you wonder why people hate you.

Aren't you just the sweetest little troll. Here's something fun that you can do today. Research "limited liability"... you may also want to research "sh*t happens", because it does.

Also, you may want to haul your butt away from your computer once in a while. If you actually got out now and then, you may come to realize that when "sh*t happens", it makes you a tougher person. When you survive trauma, you are stronger for it. That's so much better than being a whining pansy with no backbone, but you absolutely have to have a life to experience it.

Ok. Have a great day. :)


You may also want to take a look at the real world. In particular check out "cheap publicity stunt".

I didn't bother to read the thread, so I'm sure I'm just reiterating, but....

First of all, this was an accident. This incident was not by any means foreseeable or controllable by US Airways. I'm inclined to think that had any other pilot been at the helm, all the people on that plane would be feeding the marine life in the Hudson River.

To those demanding more: You are not OWED a goddamn thing. By federal law, they are only required to compensate you $250 for lost luggage, whereas you received five thousand dollars. Not only that, but you got a year of free upgrades to first class. Despite what one may think, that kind of cash does add up - especially when the industry is suffering as a whole. To top it off, the passengers don't even have to waive their rights to sue to accept these concessions.

But no, you say, that's not enough. The misplaced sense of entitlement here is absolutely staggering. This kind of bullshiat and national/societal attitude does not help the global perception of our culture.

In short, GO FARK YOURSELVES.

To those that were on the flight that aren't demanding concessions like a spoiled toddler, congrats. You're decent human beings. Live long and prosper.
 
2009-01-30 11:28:29 AM  
they are complimentary SPACE AVAILABLE upgrades. if there is a first class seat, they would be in the running to get it. there are no guarantees that they will be accomodated on any particular flight. and if it is on a smaller airplane--us air express, there are typically no first class seats.

what would be a better gesture is to give the passengers a lifetime membership in the u.s. airways club. then, if they are traveling thru an airport with a club, they would be able to use the club facilities, no matter what the plane is--or depending on what airport, what airline they are flying that particular day.

Notice the usage of the words "might" and "probably" in my post. You whine that I called you out for "stating the facts", and then turn around and do the same farking thing.

My point in all of this is that this reeks of cheap opportunism by USAir. I, for one, would be happy with reimbursement for my ruined luggage and a sincere apology. But when the PR Dept starts giving out token perks that amount to shiat and making sure it is well publicized, I say fark USAir, I hope they get sued.

DslainteC: I can understand the passengers side of the story,

I can't. This wasn't due to pilot error or negligence on part of the airline. This was caused by geese. An act of nature if you will. This isn't anyone's fault. So why should these passengers be rewarded by the airline? They should thank their lucky stars that they are still alive and be done with it.

And trust me.. you don't want some dispassionate pencil pushing corporate geek taking a calculator to the value of your saved life vs the value of your taken life."

And do what? Tell the pilots it's now part of their job description to try to kill everyone on board during a bad landing?


No, but they could figure out that all of those extra safety things they do beyond federal requirements dont pay off in crashes. Extra pilot training or aisle lights? Super-day-glow inflatable life vests with nice little watertight flashing lights? Out the door.

I'm just saying - once you start putting a price on when a company isnt at fault and still has to compensate you for living then they start calculated the costs of all scenarios including how much your life is worth to keep.

I took this airline to Costa Rica over Christmas, and I've never been made to feel like a head of cattle more than traveling US Airways.

- all four flights were late with no apology.
- nearly impossible to get through to a person via the customer service line.
- No assistance (or even sympathy) given when concern was expressed about possibly missing a layover.
- longest lines ever to check in (90 minutes for me).
- $15 per luggage for ANY checked luggage, despite having an international destination.
- no food on the flight unless you pay $5-$10. Peanuts? NOT YOURS.
- hot meal on a long international flight? forget it.
- all drinks, including soft drinks AND WATER must be paid for.
- CASH ONLY in USD - the Canadians with a toddler behind me who had a layover in Phoenix were farked, because they wouldn't accept credit cards or Canadian money for WATER for their KID (they got irate)
- ok, so there's no TV in every headrest. How about a movie on international flights like they used to do before the TV-headrest thing? HAHAHAHA.

I think they watch too much Lost. But I think they should get a few free flights out of the deal. I've flown first class as a free upgrade before. BFD, I could care less about an upgrade. Like most people I only fly a few times a year. You have what, 140ish people, How much in real costs would it be to give them each five free flights?

Honestly though, free upgrades for a year is diddly. Most people don't fly often enough to make that worth very much. How about free upgrades for the next five years, max five upgrades total or something. Or a brazillion dollars. That would be good too.

LoneVVolf: It's stories like this that restore my misfaith in humanity.

...disturbing.

Aidan: If you're the only survivor... You're automatically a hero!

Branded!
Scorned as the one who ran.
What do you do when you're branded
And you know you're a man?

And wherever you go for the rest of your life
You must prove you're a man!

Wow. That would be worth something, if you traveled more than once a year. There aren't many people who top one.

Iwouldhitit: labman: When you get in a car accident that is a random accident like a deer running out in front of you, do you expect the car manufacturer to provide you with a better car to drive for life?

Yes! And I expect deers to give me free venison for life.

Free flights in second class for a year, or 5 flights in first class for the rest of their lifetime, in addition to what's already been given. Honestly I don't think they needed to do any compensation since it was a random act of nature, which they had no control over, and they did the best thing they could by insuring that their pilots are well trained in the case of such emergencies. If they want to sue anybody, sue the folks who made engines which were not invincible to every concievable situation, or better yet the geese. They made it off that plan with their lives, they should be grateful.

This accident wasn't the fault of United Airlines. These people are owed NOTHING.

What a bunch of assholes.
