Airlines Behaving Badly

Airlines Behaving Badly

United Airlines has changed its employee booking policy. As of Friday, crew members must be booked 60 minutes in advance and cannot bump passengers that are already on a plane. Well, duh. 

This policy change has come about because of a recent incident, captured on video. Normally I don't like to judge an airline or any other company on one incident. Even with video evidence, I'm aware of the fact that I don't know what happened before the cameras started rolling. 

But—wow—this video is crazy.

A Long Layover in London

A Long Layover in London

I like to think of myself as a well-seasoned traveller who can handle all the chaos and confusion of international travel. But when I arrive at the airport to start a six-week adventure and am greeted with "Oh, did you know that your flight is delayed?", I too get frustrated. No, I did not know that. Despite downloading your app and checking my emails, there was no message from your airline, thank you very much.
