Pray 4 Mojo: ccundiff: Bob Falfa: Kuroshin: Bob Falfa: Does it meet the size requirements for carry-ons? No? THEN farkING CHECK IT.

Good jorb. You've outed yourself as an idiot. Congrats.

He didn't want to abide by the rules and I'm the idiot? If his guitar fits under the seat in front of him or in the overhead bin, fine carry it on. Otherwise CHECK IT.

No dumbass, he tried to buy it an extra seat like every other musician does with their expensive guitars and cellos and such.

Asked to carry-on. Showed an article. Was denied.

Again... for the afternoon class... words mean things.That's why we choose different verbs for different actions. Look them up if you have to. It might help.


Because the issue is totally whether or not he tried to buy his guitar a plane ticket -- an idea akin to "corporations are people" in my book -- and this isn't at all about a legitimate special case where everyone should have understood that carrying it on was no big deal.

I bet you have no problem with this, though, aka, the real problem:

Well... the issue to me is assholes calling other people stupid when they are wrong.

The issue related to the story... is that Delta straight up farked that guy and he deserves to be paid whatever it takes to make him whole (up to the limit stated in their baggage policy).

The final issue is the moron who is a "professional" musician and is flying coach... with a guitar that has no worldly business being out of his studio... in a case that is entirely unsuitable for air travel... carried on or not.

If there wasn't room for it, then it doesn't matter how super special he thinks his thing is compared to everyone's elses super special things: there wasn't room. Tough shiat.

I feel your pain, crazy musician types. It pisses us gun nuts off just as bad when our zero shifts due to the firearm being handled by an ape with a union card.

Hr expected to be able to carry it in the cabin in spite of policies stating otherwise, attempted to browbeat the gate agents into allowing it anyway, neglected to pack it for checking, declined to insure its full value against damage, and went to the press with an extremely stretched story about his guitar being "denied" a seat on the airplane when pretty much everyone knows that you don't just walk up to a gate agent expecting to be able to purchase a seat.

Despite all this, and in the absence of pictures of the actual guitar, you're willing to take his word that damages to his guitar exceeded the $1000 Delta offered him.

ccundiff: Bob Falfa: Pray 4 Mojo: divx88: Why do you dumb farkers not read the article? He wanted to pay for another seat for his instrument.

Really? Where does it say that?

THIS. Article never says that he offered to buy the seat.

Paragraph 5


reread the paragraph. It does not say what you think it says.
