Airlines Still Suck — And United is Top of the List
January 23, 2007
A while back I found myself frequently posting with bitches about airline delays.
I promised I would stop whining (at least on my blog), and kept to that promise.
In case you were wondering, though, airlines still do suck.
I had a godawful early flight to SF today. I left my house BEFORE 5 am to get to the airport. That is early even for me…
I get to the airport only to discover the bastards cancelled my flight.
Now, the annoyance of hauling me b___ out of bed so early only to find out my flight’s been cancelled was one thing.
But, far worse, is the fact that this meeting was actually important. I really needed to see someone face to face to discuss some stuff that is having a really big impact on his life. This is just not a phone conversation, and I know it really matters for this person for me to make the effort to see him in person.
Thanks to United, I won’t. And that really sucks.
I am going to bag all my United miles and start flying American whenever I can. Not that they are going to be better, but I will at least feel better about it.
I feel better already.
