gingerjet: /completely farked up PR move by Delta
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.
scottydoesntknow: I was told there's always room for cello
OscarTamerz: He talked to everybody he could get on the phone but they were all adamant about him paying the card fee even though he'd spent over $200,000 with them in a year. He ended up canceling the card and they lost tens of thousands of dollars after he went some place else.
7FARK7: Every paid seat on the Airline should earn frequent flyer miles for whoever paid for the seat, regardless of how many seats were purchased or whether or not there is even a human in the seat.
zzrhardy: Douchebage airline vs Consumerist poster.It's like watching the 2 people you hare most slug it out.
Gyrfalcon: Sorry, anyone who writes in to Consumerist with a problem automatically deserves to be beaten with a sack of doorknobs, no matter how valid their complaint.
MadAzza: I usually side with the airline if there's a complaint, because usually the customer is being unreasonable.However, Delta is coming across as petty and vindictive here.
divx88: So if you're fat, can you get banned for using Mr. Right Ass Cheek's miles?
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?
