FTFA: Salvatore Bevivino, 52, a business manager for Genentech, boarded a Virgin America flight on April 28, 2012. After the plane reached cruising altitude over Indiana, the former Amblerite pushed the call button and asked for a soda.

According to the suit, a male attendant told Bevivino that if he wanted a drink he would have to use a computer touch screen installed on the back of the facing seat.


Okay, let's stop this right here. WTF has happened to customer service, especially on the airlines? It's like the airline industry has been taken over by a bunch of Third-Worlders who have absolutely no concept of customer service. If the attendant could make the trip to the seat, why couldn't he just take the guy's drink order? This must be a new requirement, because I have never been on a flight where I was required to punch in an order for anything. If I've already paid hundreds of dollars to fly on the plane, you can damned well take my drink order without requiring me to do the data entry for you!

And what really surprises me about this is that it occurred on Virgin America. I thought they prided themselves on their customer service. I guess that pride must be more like wishful thinking.

Once you get past the purple interior and faux-cool attitudes of the flight attendants, Virgin Air is revealed to be what it is at its core: a run-of-the-mill discount airline with the service to match.

But what a difference that purple interior makes, eh?

what an incredible smell you've discovered.


Who the hell wants flight attendants up and down the aisles taking orders, credit cards, swapping receipts and floundering with drinks on top of that?  Ordering from the touch pad is a good thing.  Now sit the fark down and keep it down would ya?
 
2013-04-30 12:22:53 AM
Bevivino was eventually released, but only after the incident had caused him embarrassment, humiliation, mortification, mental anguish and emotional distress, and damage to his professional reputation, according to the suit.

I think filing suit and getting the story published did that. Hell, this could be intentional on his part; use his published name and details as evidence of damage to his name.

-USED- to. Thats very past tense.

 As someone who logs a lot of International miles, previously choosing primarily to fly Virgin (usually V Australia), I have had my fill of horrid service and uncaring employees on V. Its not quite yet to the level of so horribly and obviously dismissive, passive-aggressive, and occasionally outright hostile as employees of some of the US carriers, but its no longer anywhere near a premium service carrier either.

 I fly everywhere on Air NZ now, they have the best service imaginable. ANZ really goes so above and beyond expectations as to be remarkable.
 
2013-04-30 12:33:39 AM
I'm torn.  On one hand, I hate the TSA as much as anyone.  On the other hand (eww), dude dropped a deuce and didn't flush.  That's bad enough at the best of times, but trapped in an airborne sardine can when there's only one bathroom?  He knew damn well the next guy would have no choice but to use that stall.  Yeah, I'll actually side with the facists on this one.

Now a smart flight attendant would walk the old ignoramus through the ordering process when he first asked for the drink.  He was obviously just a technophobe.

Yup.  Absurdity really grinds my gears.  I haven't flown in a long time but it was already pretty bad back then.  Took almost an hour for the drink cart to start moving and then I was only given about four ounces of soda poured into a tiny cup.  "Can you just leave the can?"  "No."

And now I'm supposed to order my beverage from a touch screen?  Okay, the geek in me kinda likes that.  But, if I can't figure out how to place my order and someone comes over to show me how to do it, why the fark can't they just get me a farking soda?  Refusing to process my order manually isn't saving them any time.  They're already at my seat and already know what I want.  Show me how to use the doohickey for future requests but just give me a farking soda.

If they flat-out refuse, it's game on.  I'll shiat in the sink and piss in the trash chute.  Fark those putos.
 
2013-04-30 12:42:52 AM
I wonder how they are going to make that stick. Did they save the turd in question? Can they match it up somehow?

Sure the crew will stick together, but are there any passengers that can confirm or deny his language?

violentsalvation: .. Were there sh*tters on the Enterprise? Or did they just ask O'Brien to transport their poo away?


I think they actually answered this question on Enterprise:

ARCHER: Here's one from Molly McCook. 'When you flush the toilet, where does it go?' That sounds like an engineering question, so we'll ask Commander Charles Tucker, our Chief Engineer. Trip.
TUCKER: Pause it, will you? (Hoshi does) A poop question, sir? Can't I talk about the warp reactor or the transporter?
ARCHER: It's a perfectly valid question. (Tucker nods at Hoshi to resume recording)
TUCKER: The first thing you've got to understand is we recycle pretty much everything on a starship. That includes waste, and the first thing that happens to the waste is it gets processed through a machine called a bio-matter resequencer. Then it gets broken down into. Hold on. (Hoshi pauses recording) They're going to think I'm the sanitation engineer.
ARCHER: You're doing fine.
TUCKER: (recording resumed) So the waste is broken down into little molecules and then they get transformed into any number of things we can use on the ship. Cargo containers, insulation, boots, you name it.
ARCHER: Very enlightening, Commander.

I once went to pay for a drink on an airline. The guy wouldn't take my cash. I asked why my cash was no good. His response was that cash is dirty.
I pulled out my credit card and as i was handing it to him i said "well here's a card that's be sitting next to my butt for months." People around laughed. I didn't order any more drinks and behaved after that. He gave me the stink eye

Do you also whine like children take a stand when the fast food portions aren't big enough and flip the cash register open? Believe it or not, not everyone makes it their mission to be an arsehole that day. That's just you. Maybe the flight attendants who only make 25k a year with crap hours are only doing their jobs as to not get fired. How many rules do you think are ridiculous at your job?

But, please, continue the ITG. It amuses me.

I'm sorry, sir, I can't walk up to your seat, take your order, walk back and retrieve it and return it to you. I can only walk up to your seat, take your order, tell you why I can't fill it, and then return to the galley, after which I'll be happy to return again with your drink if you push the buttons on the seat back. Why yes, I used to work for the DMV, why do you ask?

Next weeks airline story:

"ANZ has really gone downhill, they are just another faceless corp. Now Tasmania Air, that's who I fly! There's a good un'!"

...and repeat.

Seriously people. They all suck. They all want your cash. Sooner or later all of their stewardesses..er excuse me, flight attendants, get surly and burnt out. The planes get a bit worn, corners are cut to make an extra buck.

Except for Singapore Air. They jettison those chicks somewhere out over the Pacific when they hit 30. No chance for grumpy post-menopausal crankiness in that outfit, nosiree bob.
