    Personally it wouldn't bother me if they all just went out of business. I haven't been on one since they told me I couldn't smoke. Not griping at all, just fact, I lost my job because I wouldn't get on an plane any more. I can't change the rules, but I can peck at their pocketbooks a little.

    I went to a restaurant last night. Although I arrived two hours before my dinner reservation they made me wait in the hallway for 4 hours. Then they told me they weren't going to cook any more food that day and sent me to a different restaurant. When I got there I waited for another two hours. Finally they called my name and proceeded to lead me to my table. My wife tried to follow me but they said she couldn't sit with me. Instead they put her at a table with an obese, snoring woman and a farting rapper who practiced his raps during the entire meal. I finally got my steak. It cost me $75. The guy next to me had the same steak but he paid $15 because he ordered it online instead of from the waitress.

    Would you go to this restaurant? This is how the airlines operate, and they deserve to go out of business.

    Delta is toast..They will keep operating, though. Maybe they can even become competitive, someday.

    Just saw on CNN that the TSA is considering ending that idiotic thing about taking your shoes off when going through security. PLEASE!

    :laugh: Don't count on it..Since the TSA has become the "Professional" airport security unit in the this Country, a change like that will take a year of Congressional hearings.

    One of these days I'm going to the airport wearing nothing but a Speedo. I'll stick my drivers license in my crotch so when TSA asks me for ID I'll just dig around in there for a while and pull it out and hand it to them. No shoes, but maybe some pink toenail polish.
