bollocks to them.... they get paid and if they don't like it, they can quit.

it is tougher being a passenger, forking out shed loads of dosh, just to be treated like cack at check in and then deal with surly in flight staff.

i do not want to be lectured by a stewardess, 2 hours into a 10 hour flight, claiming i have had too much to drink already when i have had just one skanky molson and had even taken the effort to go to the galley for my second.

ha. you are the first and only person i have known to be complimentary about american airline service.

to be fair, most of the crap service has come from budget airlines. when you get a fare of 'airport tax' only, you get what you pay for.

but flying Air France was horrible; Air Canada are miserable hosts and they do whatever they can to limit what you get (and thus their costs) but they are improving; Virgin Atlantic were always my favourite, but AC even has better entertainment than them nowadays.

by far the best tho is qatar airways. goddamn excellent in every way. second place malaysian; breakfast curry for the win everytime!

LOL

Yeah, never had a problem either. In fact even though I could drive, I rather take the DC US Air shuttle every time. It's a 38min flight but the service is classic.

Westjet FTW! The pilots make jokes over the intercom, which have actually been pretty funny and the stewardesses are very laid back. If you've ever seen their commercials, they seem to really try to be like that. Too bad they only fly in Canada.

I hate airlines, but I certainly wouldn't take it out on the flight attendants. I find them to be the BEST part of flying. I've never met a rude attendant.

There are some baggage handlers that I would love to take a swing at, however. When I was moving, we shipped our pets in the plane with us. I saw my cat on the tarmac about to be loaded. First, the guy tipped the cage back to look inside. Then he dropped it to the ground without any concern for my pet. He moved the cage to the conveyor by kicking it along with his foot and then tossed my cat up onto the belt. I complained to the airline for all the good that did me. I never even got an apology.

I also don't understand why people at the desk can't even pretend to be more personable. If I acted as rude as they do at any other job, I'd be fired. We even had one guy at a check in desk who said he wouldn't take our bags without a tip. My mother-in-law gave him a $5 and he actually scoffed at her. The only thing she had was a $20 so she gave it to him. Had I been there I would have tipped him a nice black eye.

God, I friggin hate airlines.

I hate to ask, but has all this been out of Oregon?!?

I don't check anything in cargo anymore. If it's something that I need I ususally ship it ahead. Like if I ever traveled with a snowboard, it's going UPS.

Man, all that sucks, especially about your cat. I don't know about people these days, and yeah the counter ticket people can suck a moose cock. I try everything in my power to avoid them, like etickets and having someone else get stressed about it.

I just convinced my gf not to check a bag since I can pack a carry on for a week and still have my laptop bag with not problems. Had friends lose their luggage once on a trip to Cancun, then they trying to borrow all my clothes. I also never and I mean never had an issue with taking my liquids out of my carry on.

If I'm rating airports to go out of avoid JFK in NY, even though Laguardia is rated worse I've never had an issue, Regan in DC is decent, Orland Int'l is by far the worst but I think it's cause of all the tourists that are rude, makes everyone else there rude to. Philadelphia Int'l sucks too, but that's cause of massive delays followed by asshole security. The best most peaceful airports I've been in is in Newport News, VA on a Christmas weekend no less; kinda quiet, even with the crowds. International airports I think are different in the treatment depending on the country so I ususally just keep my headphones on and nod my head. Right now I'm trying to find a penpal in Japan to plan a trip there sometime this or early next year. That should be fun.

No, it was all flights out of Indy. I haven't flown out of Oregon yet. There's nowhere better to go.

Duly noted, stay the fuck out of Indy.

I've flown several times to England, Sweden, Italy, Brazil, and all over the U.S. It really depends on the given "waitress in the sky." Some are assholes, right from the get-go. Some are super cool. So basically, it's no different than the people on this forum.
