  • My sympathies on your unfortunate experience. I suspect that to get from Lisbon to Chicago you probably didn't have a large selection of airlines on which to book. The major U.S. airlines have all been in and out of bankruptcy in recent years and have "solved" their problems in two ways:
    1. Major attacks on the wages, pensions and working conditions of their employees from top (the pilots) to the bottom (gate personnel).
    2. Fine-tuning of their ticket sales algorithms to ensure very high seat occupancy rations
  • Who would have thought I would be able to use that word so soon? Seriously, I'm bummed that that you had such a terrible flight. That makes two airlines [livejournal.com] on my blacklist. :-(

  • ... had two choice, United at $1,500 or Qantas at $2,500.

    I'm hardly expecting amazing service on a cheap airline.

    And to be fair, it wasn't THAT bad for my trip.

    One day, if you get a chance, fly by military transport. You'll never bitch about commercial airlines again.

    Although on the flip side, with military if you are allowed to fly it you can just turn up at the airport and take any seat available for free without prebooking... so that's of course way better.
