Gig103: I've been building miles under the cello's account and in turn, those miles help reduce the costs of flights for the cello in future trips.I get the point, he's buying two seats and should get credit for them both. But it sounds like he has been buying the second seat in a different name in order for the cello to have its own Skymiles account.
MadAzza: Oh! Well, then. I didn't read it carefully (on my phone).
NickelP: How did they even know he was doing this? Was he getting boarding passes for it under Mr. Cello or something?
scottydoesntknow: I was told there's always room for cello
Gig103: MadAzza: Oh! Well, then. I didn't read it carefully (on my phone).It took me a few passes until I found the line I quoted you, it's sort of buried in there, probably intentionally.NickelP: How did they even know he was doing this? Was he getting boarding passes for it under Mr. Cello or something?I'm not sure how it would work with the TSA and gate agents. .
Endive Wombat: Wait...based off the way I am reading this, Delta is the asshat here, not the OP.I presume he is paying full price for the second seat that is occupied by the instrument. So, if that is the case, who the fark cares if it is a living, breathing human, dog, pet rock, imaginary friend or musical instrument.Money is being spent for a second seat and that is that.What am I missing here?
Gig103: I'm not sure how it would work with the TSA and gate agents. The best I came up with is that he books two tickets under his name, but registered a Skymiles account in that name with a different address and phone number (family or friend?). Which would be fraud on the system since the system sucks.
oryx: If a corporation can be a person, why not a cello?
zzrhardy: Douchebage airline vs Consumerist poster.It's like watching the 2 people you hare most slug it out.
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: zzrhardy: Douchebage airline vs Consumerist poster.It's like watching the 2 people you hare most slug it out.It doesn't matter. The tortoise would totally win that fight.
Bartleby the Scrivener: More to the point, how does a farking cello case fit in an airplane seat or anywhere where a real person may be on an airplane? Does this cello have knees?
bkosh84: Why couldn't they just revoke the airline miles from the specific account for the cello? Is that really THAT hard of a concept to grasp for these farkheads?
divx88: So if you're fat, can you get banned for using Mr. Right Ass Cheek's miles?

gingerjet: /completely farked up PR move by Delta
