Mad Scientist: Sure Delta sucks. But the free market will correct that, right? Right?
rocinante721: FTFA: Delta kicked Harrell out because he always travels with his cello and pays for a separate seat for the large and very valuable instrument. Delta didn't like that, telling Harrell he was violating the rules. Not only was the cello chucked out of the program, so was the human Harrell. His miles were also confiscated, and he was barred from ever enrolling in any Delta Sky Miles program in the future. [emphasis mine]How is he a douchebag, now?Also, old Jews kvetch alot
Gyrfalcon: Yeah, sorry, calling the head of the airline 25 times in six months is not "reasonable" no matter how good your lawyer is.
Uranus Is Huge!: Why'd he get a separate account for his cello? He should just get double credit for occupying two seats, like a fat guy.
Inchoate: On the one hand, sounds like a belly-achin' old guy who's a serial complainer.
oh_please: I don't understand why the guy with the cello got booted. The airline got their money, and didn't have to deal with a human? Sounds like a win for the airline.
illannoyin: American Airlines has a history of canceling your miles when it becomes unprofitable for them. Do a Google for 'AAirpass' for more examples./Can't post links from my phone
GBmanNC: Airlines are douche bags, the general population are bigger douche bags.
carrion_luggage: SCOTUS to decide if airlines can kick people out of their frequent flying programs for complaining too much. Difficulty: the plaintiff is a douche bagOh great, ANOTHER bag charge.
wheatpennyandaglock: i wonder if he would have been happier if they never lost his luggage and left on time everytime, but they crashed and he was killed?
Madcaplaff: All frequent fliers are douche bags.
SonOfSpam: Gyrfalcon: Yeah, sorry, calling the head of the airline 25 times in six months is not "reasonable" no matter how good your lawyer is.It's reasonable if you got shiatty service 25 times in six months, which is an entirely feasible scenario if you fly a lot - a frequent flyer, you might say. And this guy apparently did fly a whole lot.
dwlf: only 24 complaints against NW over the course of a few months does sound within the realm of reason
Pinner: They should have the right to refuse service to anyone.They do it every day.What's the issue?
Madbassist1: dwlf: only 24 complaints against NW over the course of a few months does sound within the realm of reasonyou need another airline, seriously...that's ridiculously unreasonable.
MindStalker: Pinner: They should have the right to refuse service to anyone.They do it every day.What's the issue?Its not that they are refusing a service to these people. They can still fly, its that they are refusing to honor these individuals coupons because of past disputes. The legality is certainly undecided at this point, if it was clear it wouldn't have made it to SCOTUS.
