And I want that complainers name too.
I don’t post very often, so if I have erred, please correct as needed.
There has to be more to the story. I fly Delta all the time and they are very respectful of vets.
I’ve seen multiple cases where they gave special treatment to vets.
I read the article and it has this comment: “I have been flying with Delta for a gazillion years and this crew treated Chris worse than youd treat any thing, not even any body.”
But, I didn’t see what events or treatment of the Vet were so horrible.
This article really makes no sense. It is strong on emotional manipulation but very short on facts.
The story is very confusing. Delta is a Southern airline and usually great with vets, very supportive. They always announce when we have active duty military on board and we applaud and thank them.
Story makes no sense on several levels.
1. I don’t see where the humiliation comes from.
2. He should have preboarded.
3. He should have arranged for a seat up front - he would have had several opportunities to do so.
4. He shouldn’t be flying with a 104 deg fever.
5. I’ve never seen a Delta employee disrespect a disabled person - ever, including myself when I’ve had to use a wheelchair to get on and off the plane.
6. I’ve never seen a Delta employee disrespect a veteran.
Aren’t these flight attendants and pilots all-union?
I suspect melanin based racism here.
Today’s flying industries......so far above the rest of us!....../sarc
This story sounds like one posted 6+ months ago...
It only took the Washington Post a year to find and spin the story?
What’s the MSM agenda?
Flight attendents used to be pretty and really nice. Now they are union thugs. I stopped flying with the TSA’s sexual molestation program. As a nomral reaction for me, I might punch some stranger who grabbed by crotch.
No guarentee I would have survived bowing to the goose stepping, murdering freaks in Nazi Germany. America is “progressing” there as fast as the US government and Congress can take us. They need gun control.
Oh, God. This is what we've come to. Instead of an apology and discipline for the crew, we get modern-corporate-marxist-speak. "Sensitivity training" won't fix it.
I went back to the bar where he was and said the change was incorrect. He insisted I'd given him a $10; I said it was a $20. After a brief argument (that drew embarrassed looks from another attendant), I got my $10. I returned to my seat.
For the next hour and a half, this bozo bad mouthed me to every passenger on the plane on how I'd bilked him out of his $10. Finally I had enough and I went back to talk to this guy. I told him I didn't like him calling me a thief and I was complaining to the president of United. I wanted his name. He countered with, “What's yours?” I gave him my business card. Then I got his name and that of the attendant who'd witnessed this incident.
Several hours later, the male attendant came by with two bottles of champagne for us. He said he'd balanced his accounts and things came out to the penny — I was right after all. He apologized and I accepted. He didn't know how close he came to losing his job because I really intended to get his butt fired.
Few are trained with how to deal with a disabled vet.
The blind Marine CAP machinegunner I hang out with on occasion taught me a few tricks.
When receiving change, you count out the bills for him. You tell him, here’s a ten, here’s a five and three singles. He arranges the bills in his billfold as is his custom.
When hopping from one bar to the next, you don’t grab his arm. Allow him to take your wing and ditty-bop to the next watering hole.
Same thing when entering a home he is not familiar with. Let him take your wing (your arm) and show him where the head is. He’ll count the steps, when to turn and how to get there.
Your experience may be different, but let the disabled vet teach you.
