My guard unit had a two week AT in Cali that really really sucked. Nothing went right, and nerves were on edge on the flight back. As we are getting ready to board, they stop my platoon sergeant and tell him his seat has been given to someone with a higher priority. He asks WTF and the gate lady hesitently tells him a seeing eye dog is taking his seat. "You're giving my seat to a farking dog?? A dog is more important than I am?" He asks if the dog is actualy going to be sitting in the seat and they tell him no, the dog is going to be under the feet of the owner, but they need the seat to strap in the dog in case of an emergeny."

"So you are kicking me off the plane for a dog that is not even going to be actualy using the seat unless it's an emergency, of which if there actualy was one, you wouldn't have time to strap the damn dog in the first place?"   '....uh yes.'

Sergeant says "fark this" and last we saw him, he was heading right for the bar.

doubled99: If you can''t figure out why a big time basketball team is more important than you, then you just don't get it.

Do they live by a WARRIOR CODE?!

AgentPothead: She said passengers were told their plane had a mechanical failure, but then some noticed through a window the Gators were boarding their airplane.

Lying to your passengers? That's Delta!

Lying to a paying customer is fraud.  I believe in hanging for fraud.  The gate clerks and the supervisor that made the call should all hang and Delta should be fined a billion dollars with no option for bankruptcy.

I thought that if you showed up at an airport with 50 paying passengers, any airline would fall over itself to get a plane for them. Fifty passengers all going to the same place! That like free business for the airlines. They have dreams of fifty passengers all wanting to go to the same destination! I gotta tell you, I think I know this business pretty well. You make a reservation for 50 people, you lose the ability to negotiate! I'll get to the terminal and say "Who wants to take these 50 passengers? There will be airline personnel jumping of their counters to get us. We'll get a plane and a lower rate!

I've done this with the Yankees for years. And it works for hotels and restaurants too!

Sorry, but you're less important than the local sports heroes.  At least one of them didn't rape you.
