I hope they arrest her, if only to scare the ever lovin' crap out of her.

And if I were her parents all her social media accounts would be shut down and if she has a cell phone (most teens do), that should be confiscated.

It takes a lot to make American Airlines the "good guy"
 
2014-04-13 06:49:11 PM
But she said it was her friend!!!

Good luck American Airlines. She's behind 7 Boxxies!

Brazen terrorist. I don't even care what her agenda is.

Shutting up stupid teenagers or crying babies (I've seen flight attendants with much more sense than their parents) can generate gratitude quickly.

But then they'll lose your luggage for three days during a heat wave, and you'll forget all about that.

I've had "friends" like that.

I hope her parents seize all her accounts and phone but we will probably have a follow up soon about how American Airlines humiliated their little snowflake and now she is suffering from embarrassment because "it was all a harmless joke."

My kid, and she is around here somewhere and would verify this, would be suffering more from my wrath than the public's wrath. I don't put up with this dumb snowflake shiat.

Her mistake was taunting a company that knows how to use Twitter. If she had taunted United, she would have been fine.

Well it does seem a bit silly for AA to have responded at all instead of just forwarding the information to authorities.
 
2014-04-13 06:55:35 PM
To be fair, i wanted to send United some four letter words Thursday after getting stuck on the tarmac for forty five minutes after landing in Syracuse.
 
2014-04-13 06:56:54 PM
She's an idiot and she should be arrested for a few hours to scare some sense into her. if that's remotely possible. And her parents should take away her cell phone and only let her use a computer when there's an adult present as long as she lives under their roof.

/Newsflash: Nobody buys the "I was hacked" excuse. Ever.

You should've sent it in an anagram. They'd be baffled.
 
2014-04-13 07:00:22 PM
I liked how she said she was just kidding, then later on she said her friend did it.  haha. I'm guessing AA won't do anything and just wanted to scare her, which is why they responded.  If they thought it was serious, they would have just forwarded the tweet to authorities.

Nor do I. My son is in his early thirties, but if he did something like this as a teenager his would receive full-on wrath from me.

There is no way this can be ignored now.  She's going to get a visit from The G.....if they aren't at her house right now.

My daughter is 27 - once, she did something stupid at school and got suspended for three days.   When she called me from the school's office, I called her a dumbass.  She told the secretary and she said, "I am sure that she did not mean it."

Oh, I sure did mean to call her a dumbass.  I also sent her to muck stalls at the barn where are horses were trained for the three days while she was off so she could see what kinds of jobs people who get kicked out of high school could expect to have as an adult.

I still think that was a dumb ass move...

Wtf? they didn't report her to the FBI? I would hope that now this has become a news story, the FBI will be a calling on her parents.

Read American Airlines intial tweet. They stated that her IP address and details will be fowarded to security & the FBI.

After which she tried to throw a friend under the bus by saying it was their IP address, not hers.

Take this poor bomb scare off my phone
I'm exposed
And I'm completely blown
Don't you think I know
Exactly where I stand
This G-man forcing me
To handcuff my hand
'Cause I'm just a girl, little 'ol me
Don't let me out of your sight
I'm just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don't let me have any rights

BullBearMS: A fourteen year old didn't consider the consequences of their actions???


Normally, I'd completely agree. But tweeting a terroristic "joke" threat to an airline? There's a line where teenage stupidity as an excuse just doesn't cut it.

Plus my friend Bobby says his friend Eddy has a sister Jenny whose friend Tabitha totally knows someone who knows this girl and says she's a biatch anyway.

1998 called and would like their parental advice book back.

They don't even need to arrest her. Just send a couple of secret service agents to her house.

This. If AA had just forwarded the information, no one would know about it. This way, everyone gets to point at "Sarah" and laugh, and it serves as a warning to everyone else who might be inclined to do the same thing.

I don't get the continual lost luggage complaints. Back in the day it may have been an issue, but I log over 100K miles per year and have since the late 90s, and I've only had my luggage delayed once. And that was because Changi decided to go crazy with their baggage security for some reason after the Bali bombing, so it wasn't the airline's fault. In addition, we're almost exclusively on United (Continental before that) and I've never had a problem with them so I don't get that hate either.

Or maybe they are all plants from competitors, and they are making up lies about lost luggage.

I've had good experience with Continental and United- and in fact I wrote to United last week complimenting them on getting my bike through a tight connection in ORD.

But ask people who fly British Airways about luggage- they once lost my bag for 80 hours in Hungary during the 2003 heatwave, where there was no AC and no Target nearby where I could just buy extra socks and underwear. It was... uncomfortable. Last year a check-in agent at Heathrow told us that any layover over 4 hours and your luggage WILL get lost, and even explained why it happens.

And in places like Baghdad, no way I'm even tempted to check anything.

American Airlines should realize it was just a harmless joke and offer her a free trip to a sunny exclusive camp in the south of Cuba.

Or it could be that every person who ever had an anecdote about a lost bag ignores the fact that  almost all bags are correctly delivered. You don't hear all the anecdotes about the bags delivered on time, and with the priority bag tag actually doing its job (thanks Delta), but given the scale of baggage handling at major hub airports-- just the sheer number of bags-- the fact that lost bags aren't a bigger problem is a testament to how well the technology works.  Once in a while a bag is lost-- these days you can usually track your lost bag through the airline's smartphone app, and they will deliver it to you by courier.
