Complain about airports and airlines super thread

Recommended Posts

Maybe its just me, but I tend to fly a bunch and Im sure a ton of you do. As of the last 2-3 years flying has become a fucking pain in the ass. Lemme start ona few things.

 

The US hub system. This is retarded, when booking a flight from canada to the eu, why the fuck do i have to fly from the west coast to dallas to london adding a nice 5 hours on to my flight time? or connecting through minneapolis, to chicago, vegas then nyc? what kind of stupid ass flight is that? I never have understood the hub system.

 

Canadian airlines in general. fuck you and your $300 minimum to get anywhere in the country. fuel surcharge? fuck you, add up the number of people on a flight times by price of fuel, factor in distance and that number is always way off.

 

ghetto ass budget airlines in europe, fuck you and all of your no strings attached lies, your 8£ booking fees yeah im sure it costs you 8 quid to process a visa transaction. fuck you and making me pay to check one bag, it never used to be that way and the price was still the same. oh and paying for online check in? ok ill not pay and do it for free, then get the police called on me cause im not an eu citizen as im boarding the plane. oh and thinking of charging to use the pisser? i hope michael oleary gets bladder cancer for that idea.

 

also i love that thse low budget shitlines use pilots who have been sacked and need to keep up their hours and pay them nothing. i really want majcek the drunk polish pilot who was fired from zltoyairski flying me to my white trash holiday destination.

 

fuck airport security, im not blowing up a plane with my conditioner, or deodorant, either is the 75 year old woman ahead of me. im not paying 20$ to pay for a carry on bag your check in girl said was ok in the first place.

 

oh and fuck you big name airlines for this whole charging for luggage thing.

 

how about airline companies booking flights until the day they go bankrupt? im sure they knew that was coming. thats just theft.

 

Oh and thanks for destroying my luggage and telling me its my fault and you cant do anything. get aids.

 

I will never fly with United, Ryanair, US Airways, Wizzair, Monarch, Thomas cook, WestJet, EasyJet, Southwest, or a whole shit load of others.

 

Share your amazing airline stories.

 

Fuck it im taking the train.

Im at an airport right now waiting for a flight. They dont even have free wi-fi.

 

In general, air travel is a pretty gay experience.

When I stopped over in Singapore on the way to Austrailia, I was expected to shit in a tiny hole in the floor. That wasnt too great.

that's how some of the public toilets were in japan, well out near osaka. i was not trying to shit in one of those while wearing a suite heading to a business meeting.

 

best flights i've had were qantas. my flight to AUS from LAX was great, as was my flight from SYD to MEL. But I wasn't a fan of JAL at all. I had a flight from LAX to JFK and my fuckin seat was broke (AA i think). so i couldn't even sit my seat upright, those whole flight the thing kept going back. who am i kidding, that's a joke compared to some shit i've heard people go through.

 

also, the airport is the most grossly overpriced place ever.

hey T.T Boy......... UMAD?!?! :lol:

 

i travel every chance I get. always good experiences.

 

except the last flight thru continental. they overbooked my flight, had me take a later flight with 3 transfers, missed the last flight out of mexico city, had to stay the night and they refused to pay for it :mad:

 

its cool though, they gave me a $300 travel voucher.

 

I've flown Southwest, AirTran, US Air, Delta, American Air, Aeromexico, Mexicana, AlItalia, & Continental.

 

I'm hoping to fly with Virgin USA from LAX to SFO this summer.

^ spoken like someone who didn't travel before 2005.

 

 

things have changed so much, it is just a travesty now when you compare it to how it used to be.

and continental. how you suck donkey balls. worst airline i have ever flown.. horrible employees.. basically shitbags who know they must be working for a failed airline. a fee to check any bag at all. that's how to lose customers.

 

the whole liquids thing is effin stupid. not too mention if you had a team of ppl you'd get what you needed on board anyway. they seem to have it handled a little better in europe, where you can occasionally get a liquid through if it was bought in a special way.

plus they don't even screen checked bags. how dumb is that.

 

 

i have flown easily over 100 flights round trip..

every single united states carrier.

southwest over 50 times, they are still a decent airline.

the asian airlines, like singapore, still do a good job as well.

for most, it is bad and it is getting worse. i was pleasantly surprised by british airways last weekend though. way to capitalize on low expectations.

WTF? At Changi airport? Or were you out and about in the city? Most places there have western toilets. Indonesia is a whole different story...

WTF? At Changi airport?

 

I think it was Changi. It was a nice bathroom but when you've just flown for 10+ hours the last thing I wanna do is squat above a hole in the floor and lay a turd :lol:

Airports make me furious. I could definitely see myself getting into a fight with some fat rednecks for blocking an entire walking area while walking like 1mph as i'm trying to hurry to my flight.

 

On the bright side, i haven't gotten searched for a few years now, in comparison to right after 9-11 where i got searched like 8-10 times in a row, every single flight i had.

 

Also, what is up with airports/airplanes always being either extremely hot or extremely cold? Its like they have no idea what a reasonable temp is, so they just say fuck it and toss it up to 90 or down to 40. I mean, i understand its hard to keep a large busy area at a steady temp, but come on, i shouldn't be sweating bullets while sitting waiting for my flight.

Last flight I had was on delta. Had to pay to check 3 bags both ways. $100. Then nobody wants to check anything so there is no storage space so not only do I have my son on my lap, other son and wife beside me but all of our carry ons.

Never had a good experience at Washington Dulles. Fuck Delta AND United.

 

On a positive note: MIDWEST AIRLINES RULES!!! Free drinks and snacks. GIANT SEATS. Apparently fresh baked cookies are their schtick. And the food is like it was made by a person not a machine.

Flying RyanAir was the only time I have legitimately feared for my safety on a plane. Not only was everybody cramped in there like cattle, but I could tell we were approaching the runway way too fast....the plane fucking fishtailed for christ's sake.

 

My friend works for Air Canada and has some real horror stories about the quality of pilots on some of these budget airlines.

 

PS - TT Boy....see you in a few months.
