Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., launched a Twitter tirade against American Airlines Friday night after experiencing delay problems involving a flight to D.C...

@marcorubio: Trying to get to DC for early morning votes tonight but let's just say this has not been the best week in American Airlines history.

A sample of more of Rubio's tweets:

@marcorubio: Delaying flight for "maintenance" to squeeze connectors from other flight, oldest trick in book.Feel bad for crew.#cmonman #AmericanAirlines

Of course, I have to say all airlines have had a rough go under the Obamugabe administration....so hopefully we can get a more business friendly administration in 2013.

Since AA is the biggest airline in Latin America...thought maybe Rubio would give it some “amnesty”....

Nearly 50% of their flights are late due to the pilots slowdown and sickin strike......... I’m surprised Rubio
wasn’t aware of this.

Thanks SoFloFreeper.

If those two examples are as strong as it gets, it isn’t a tirade.

Looks like more misdirection by Partisan Media Shills, maybe to cover stuff like this:

American sent out a letter yesterday to AAdvantage members, stating that almost all of the delays lately have been because pilots have been reporting maintenance problems at the last minute.

It requires them to hold the flight, and bring a mechanic to the gate to check it out. The mechanic says: "OK", and the flight departs about 30 minutes late. I had it happen to me this week.

AA did this to me once. Covered their tracks well, put me up in a nice hotel... but, I didn’t have a session of Congress to get to, so I never thought about it.

I hope this happens more often to politicians. I’m sick and tired of the mergers and the lack of competition in the airline industry they approve.

Rubio was one of the nine senators that was a "did not vote" for Rand Paul's amendment to cut off funding for the bad guys if they don't cooperate with investigations. It was an early morning vote last night.

Pathetic Late Night Vote.

It was defeated 81-10. Simply unbelievable. Pubbies and Dems alike voted against it.

Not surprised.

Marco Rubio is not a conservative....anyone still describing him as a conservative....is not one, either

He is the biggest shill for Illegal Alien Amnesty in the Senate...and numerous times blocked bills to give Florida “Arizona type” immigration laws...he did this while speaker of Florida House

Rubio also supports Govt funding of “preventing Global Warming”.

As a long-time Floridian who understands Florida politics better than the average talking head....Rubio is not a Conservative...people who think he is one...they are not conservative, either

Complete bull dung.

American Airlines top brass puts that crap out in a statement, and the public helps spread the propaganda. Nicely done.

The arrivals and departures are what they are. They are on time or they aren’t. I don’t have to fly that airline so I don’t really give a rats ass.

He allied with that fake suntanned orange faggot Charlie Crist to enact primary seat belt enforcement in FL and never held a real job in his life.

Just another twerp lawyer and busybody who knows whats best for us, sucking up taxpayer money and redistributing it to himself and his lawyer buddies and conning the gullible that he is somehow any different than the rest of the scumbag politicians.

“so I don’t really give a rats ass.”

So because this airline means nothing to you, you feel it’s your right to make up statistics. I see.

You never have seen the need to stand and wait in the integrity line, have you?

AA lost their way in the early 90s.

"American Airlines top brass puts that crap out in a statement, and the public helps spread the propaganda."

Where are the FACTS in this dribble?
