Radak: C? Really, subby? This time I was really hoping for the surprise A or B answer.
OtherLittleGuy: "She was not banned for life. She was prevented from boarding following an incident."And if she tried to book again in the future, will she be prevented again because of that incident?If so, isn't that "banned for life"?
This About That: Remember that thread about why people are driving more and flying less?
davidphogan: This About That: Remember that thread about why people are driving more and flying less?Amtrak is a pleasant option as well for replacing short flights. Portland to Seattle it's great for.
Rapmaster2000: The row started when Mrs Kirby was told her hand luggage was too big and needed to go in the hold. She says when she tried to argue her case she she was ignored repeatedly, so she touched the handler's arm to get her attention.Oh, it's that lady. I'm sure that arguing about your giant bag would somehow modify its physical specifications.
bunner: I'm always amused at armchair corporate pom pom wavers pronouncing things "irrelevant" with their best dime store posture of authority. DO you have a .wmv video file of this? you were obviously there.
brimed03: Can we stop referring to these people in the headlines as "grandmothers?" Yes, it is denotatively correct. But the connotation is the sweet, fragile old lady who is almost NEVER what the person in the photo looks like.
Arctic Phoenix: It still takes almost 4 hours to get from Portland to Seattle... and that's after the train gets loaded up and takes off. Flying is cheaper and faster, even with the hassles.
Mithiwithi: bunner: I'm always amused at armchair corporate pom pom wavers pronouncing things "irrelevant" with their best dime store posture of authority. DO you have a .wmv video file of this? you were obviously there.None of us were there, dude. We have to decide which of two contradictory stories are true, and we mostly just have our life experiences to draw from as to which is more plausible. And most of us who travel by air have seen a lot more obnoxious passengers insisting that their bloated overstuffed suitcase will fit in the overhead compartment than we have flight personnel arbitrarily telling someone that they need to gate-check their bag while letting larger bags go without comment.
ElBarto79: The fact that you have "important papers" in your bag is irrelevant.
ElBarto79: Being polite and calm very likely will however. State your case then accept the response with grace.
BarkingUnicorn: Radak: C? Really, subby? This time I was really hoping for the surprise A or B answer.On Thanksgiving Day, especially, we honor our proud traditions!
