How I Hate To Fly Now-a-Days - Airlines, as many Big Gov't Loving Big Companies, Don't Understand Market Forces

The Major Airlines have been in Economic Fascist Partnership with the Federal Government for decades. The sad result, they start acting like political fascists. m/r

Few experiences capture the awfulness of life in post-Christian America more vividly than a trip to the airport. It is a toss-up as to who behaves worse: the sandals-wearing passengers or the surly crew.
The classlessness of the airlines industry is breathtaking and has now culminated in the beating and dragging of a paying customer who dared to resist its “overbooking” schemes. One can only cheer the plummeting stock price of United Airlines — a biblically fitting punishment for its smallness and greed.
For the sake of saving thousands, it has lost millions. This is a Tiananmen Square moment for the airlines industry, with David Dao as Tank Man. Of course, those whom the media gods would destroy, they first make famous. Now we are seeing reports on Dao’s squalid and difficult past. But who cares? He was still mistreated, as even the corporate weasels at United Airlines now admit.

United CEO Oscar Munoz has called the episode “horrific” and pledged to “fix what’s broken so this never happens again.” But his first instinct was to blame the customer and pander to his employees.
