What's the point of this article? Slow news day? Did the editorial staff short Southwest stock or invest heavily in Useless Airlines?

This is what you get for picking the bargain basement airline for your flights.
 
2012-06-17 04:25:20 PM  
So, this overweight woman who wore saggy pants, a bad t-shirt and a headscarf was showing cleavage and kissing another girl all while mourning he dad?

No wonder they kicked her out, she doesn't sound stable.

The newcomers and LCC's always feel the wrath of reports who all seem to be employed by the big carriers. Southwest and JetBlue have received so much flak since they started.

So, with the exception of the Muslim chick, every one of them were self-important, whiny, entitled jackasses who made a big, obnoxious scene when told to clean up their act a little bit. Pull up your pants. Button your shirt. STFU and get on the plane.

I fail to see a problem here... Other than with the passengers.
 
2012-06-17 06:26:31 PM  
I'm pretty much down with all those reasons with the exceptions of 1, 2, & 7.

I wanna watch.

If people are really being disruptive it's one thing but they're not guests at the White House. It's a plane. I don't see why there needs to be a dress code. Get over yourselves. You're Greyhound that flies..

Maybe that person got kicked off for having a painfully unfunny shirt. Probably a better reason than most on that list.

FTA: The budget airline has kicked off passengers for wearing saggy pants and crying[...]

If I were wearing saggy pants I'd be crying too.
 
2012-06-17 07:21:42 PM  
I'm so glad that Yahoo News could manage to find 8 people who got kicked off for reasons they disagree with over the course of 8 years. Note that Southwest transported 104 million people just last year

Why is southwest still considered a low fare airline?

$180 "wanna get away" from La Guardia to Detroit one way is not low fare.
 
2012-06-17 07:58:30 PM  
I once sat on an aisle seat with a man who was at least 500 pounds. The Continental flight attendant was not at all sympathetic. The flight was full.

LAX to Houston. It was absolutely miserable for me and I'm sure he was too

If you take up three seats, then buy 3 seats

They have a really good marketing department. Also, when they start flying in somewhere and offer $8 one way tickets, it keeps their average ticket price low.

But at least they only charge you for the one-way because they know you're not making it back.

Much of which is well deserved, but only when relevant. The Kevin Smith thing, for example, was February 2010.

I still don't know why Kevin Smith would fly Southwest. He's made millions....so it's time to fly first class.

I don't see how people can complain about a private business exercising their right to refuse service to anyone.

All those people were given a change to correct their behavior.

I don't think anyone said they don't have the right to be dicks about refusing passengers for stupid shiat. Doesn't mean they're not dicks.

Rode Southwest from LA to Albuquerque back in 2000 on the day before Thanksgiving. They made me sit next to a fat guy who insisted that I should put the armrest up so he could fit (I told him to fark off, he can't sit in my lap) and to top it all off, Neil Patrick Harris was on the flight.

I know it was a while ago, but dang, NPH, couldn't you afford to fly Continental to see the folks?

(NPH was cool, Mr. Fat was not)

CraicBaby: The only reason I like Southwest is because they don't charge for checked bags.


Southwest makes up for that by charging you for semi-predictable seating and generally inferior service. If you like rolling the dice at odd hours just to make the right group on checkin, then the same when you get on the plane, have inferior service during the flight, and do so for a red-eye with only enough energy to make it to a pre-selected seat, fine. The Rest of Us will be on a better carrier.

KingVJ: I don't see how people can complain about businesses acting like they're almighty. They should bow down before the business and hope the company does not smite them.


FTFY for truth versus your white-knighting of the company.

He claims to have a healthy diet of pissing it away. That's why he still needs to work and make shiat like Cop Out.

Southwest. flying out of Smallbany, is as cheap as the cheapest flights for the other airlines, almost always runs on time, and has never lost my luggage. No other airline comes close. No bag fee, even better. They have the worst service? Are you kidding me? If you're in coach on the other airlines, the service is at least as bad. I'm looking at you, United (and before that, American).

I only fly a couple times a month max, though, so I defer to the pro-travelers.

Some flights show you the total after all the fees. I'll admit the bag fees add up to a lot but I usually just carry on a backpack (which only costs me on spirit, the worst airline ever)

I always figure out the cheapest total cost on Travelocity or Expedia and then check southwest.com, which isn't even close.

I'm usually looking for LGA to Detroit, LA, or DC so maybe that's why southwest isn't competitive for those routes.

I didn't say it that way, cause I don't know how to spell that 'a' word you use. Just Kidding. They aren't almighty, but it isn't like they are the Department of Motor Vehicles, where there isn't an alternative.

Because consumers communicate their experiences to provide praise or warning that can be useful to other consumers who are still making a choice of who to do business with?

I don't get your point. Why wouldn't people communicate their experiences? The fact that the business has a right to do something doesn't mean they should be insulated from criticism if their actions don't align well with their customers' expectations.

The point is SW has abandoned it's position as a good airline, in an effort to become the airline of whiny, d-bag hipsters

Oh Billie Joe Armstrong, you're so edgy.
 
2012-06-18 10:23:01 AM  
How about building seats that can hold people (not crash test dummies)?

I could stand the groping (TSA guy looked more upset during that first-date feel-up than I felt), but the 7 hours on four flights was not fun in a seat designed for 5'8ish folks. And don't tell me to lose weight - unless I hack off both legs at the knees and get my chest taken in, I won't be able to fit in an airline seat.

Where's enforcement of the ADA? 1.5-2x the cost is not a "reasonable accommodation".

True & maybe if you have a bad experience that you couldn't overcome on the spot. BUT 7/8ths of these people could have corrected their behavior on the spot & been provided the same service that the 1.8 million people or so experience.

I do take pride in sharing good & bad experiences with company.
 
2012-06-18 06:50:29 PM  
I've no issues with American. Unlike Southwest, one can get a predictable seat arrangement, consistent service, and the general idea that you're not in a cattle car. In addition, Southwest has no international partnership should I wish to have any miles used for those flights. Unlike Delta, I'm not supporting Georgia's deeply anti-worker airline, opting for a more friendly experience in somewhere like Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW).



/Taken too many red-eye flights to justify the Southwest Dicerolls
//First for the seating group and second for the specific seat.

No, that's Atlanta. I'd rather be caught in the Detroit airport for a layover than the supermassive Delta hub. The only thing ATL is good for is inter-concourse marathon running - oh wait, the airport engineers thought to use a slow and clumsy people mover for the concourses.

Because most liberals are entitled pieces of shiat who think the world revolves around them. They also believe that they should be allowed to force their beliefs on other people.
