  • 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!
  • Remember that thread about why people are driving more and flying less?
  • Claims she touched steward's arm but airline says she twisted it. Still, best just go for the most inflammatory claim, eh subby?
  • So sky waiters are even more cranky than sky waitresses?
  • She stripped naked, threatened the crew, and then touched a flight attendant? I'd ban her too.
  • "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"?
  • Yeah of course you barely touched them, just getting their attention right? fark off. Grabbing hold of someone and preventing them from moving away is plan assault, especially in an already fraught situation. You lost your temper then lost your seat, that is how the world works.
  • Why do I have the suspicion that what happened is more like this:

    Agitated woman grabbed the arm of pissy flight attendant. Pissy flight attendant ordered woman off plane and yelled to ticket agent "Don't let this biatch back on the plane!" Agitated woman flounced off in a huff. Confused ticket agent canceled flight, flagged woman's name. Woman came back next day, agent saw flag, said "Oh, you can't fly, let me get the manager." Agitated woman now even more agitated, flounced off in even bigger huff, called newspaper. Things spiraled out of control from there.

    Because otherwise this sounds like a total non-story.

    Besides, she's old. She could drop dead at any moment.
  • 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 touchedgrabbed and twisted the handler's arm to get her attention in a fit of "Its all about me biatch" rage.

  • Don't ever touch other people. Problem solved.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The airline could have at least waited until they were airbourne before pushing her off the plane. If they did that, we wouldn't have to listen to granny running her mouth about the incident.
  • Same thing happened to me! She went completely crazy on me and all I did was barely touch her arm with the tip. My balls weren't even close to touching her!

    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.
  • Damn.. guessed the wrong one... >.>
  • I like the 'Next time relax before you fly' warning they have on the airstairs to let you know it is a shiatty airline.
  • "Ooooh, this person is doing the same crap we intentionally do to piss off our customers every day! Don't let her get away with it!" (is what I imagine the stewardess thinking).

    Did you miss the part about how "...the whole time she was allowing other passengers to board the plane with bags much larger than ours and we could see them going across the tarmac with their cases."

  • 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.

    The staff member summoned a supervisor, who promptly banned Mrs Kirby from the flight.


    Ah yes, people who argue their bag isn't too big are always the calm reasonable type.
  • I want to know what kind of "important papers" were in her luggage that she couldn't take out and put in her f*cking purse.
  • 'Tis but a scratch.
