Seems very responsible on the airline's part, IMHO.

For this is should be legal to remove them in-flight.

I think the passengers should get to line up and "calm down" the singer a'la that scene in "Airplane"

I think that is called refusing to stop pissing other customers off.
There was some old a-hole on a plane to FLA who whistled a tune loudly and when the stewardess asked him to stop he started insisting the other passengers were enjoying it and then got pissed when I chimed in with "no we are not" almost got both of us tossed off the plane.

What a shame. How will they know if he was saving the best for last? You know, it's not right but it's ok.

Yup, and Otis Redding's version of Respect was better than Aretha Franklin's
and Merle Travis' version of Sixteen Tons was better than Ernie Ford
and Big Mama Thorton's version of Hound Dog was better than Elvis
and the Beatles are nothing but a cover band for Buddy Holly, Arthur Alexander, and Chuck Berry.

You'd think so, but at about the three hour mark I'd probably be hoping that the plane caught on fire just to make it stop.

Seriously? Are you deaf? The problem with WH songs is that many of them are major ear worms.

[csb]

I once worked as a temp accountant at a company that had radio music piped in to the cubical area. I was seated directly under a ceiling speaker. The DJ apparently had a thing for WH an was constantly playing her songs. I lasted less than a week.

[/csb]

I would rather be tied down in one of the Small World boats at Disneyland and listen to It's a Small World After All over and over than listen to constant WH songs. No, scratch that. It would be equally bad. Just kill me now.
 
2013-05-13 04:52:52 PM
I feel that there is a measure of due respect because the woman is dead.  But I have to say, if I never hear another one of her songs again, it will still be too soon.

Damn if they didn't play the hell out of that song from The Bodyguard entirely too many times right after she died.  That song sucked to start with, and only got worse as they played it over and over and OVER AND OVER again!!!  It can't be said enough - I'd rather go deaf than endure that again.

Okay, my level of respect went totally out the window despite my best intentions.

In 2009, American Airlines had this policy in place:  ""Use of still and video cameras, film or digital, is permitted only for recording personal events. Photography or video recording of airline personnel, equipment, or procedures is strictly prohibited. "

They bought their ticket, they knew what they were getting into.

Oh, wait, wrong plane thread.

Yes, I agree, thoroughly, completely, absolutely, sincerely.  This high crime must be punished by the ultimate penalty.  Ordinarily, I'd say torture by making the defendant listen to WH songs, but this inhuman creature actually seems to enjoy the miserable miasma of sonic syllaborrhea.

Wish to know why Dolly's version wasn't popular? It wasn't ran into the ground by every DJ in America (not even on the country stations). I got so sick of hearing the cat yelling I turned off the radio for 10 years. Dolly's version is a lot better, and a bit more fitting in the movie it came from. Whitney's was garbage, but "OH IT WAS WHITNEY! PLAY IT EVERY 15 MINUTES" made it "popular."

/don't get me started on the Beatles...
