You are vindicated for your mood swings; last nights show were #3 and #4...it started last Monday, 1/5/04 so I'm assuming you missed #1 and #2..

BAW and I will be exemplary passengers the next time we fly...how in the world do you do it???


ZONEY FOR AIRLINE EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR!


Monday, A&E channel 10 p.m.

Hi maddie!

Yes, Mr. BAW....I missed the first week. not well informed. I feel as if I just walked up to a counter 20 minutes before a flight...and no one told I was supposed to be there one hour before.

My favorite story from last night...they guy in the wheelchair with a shotgun. When the airline checks to make sure your gun is not loaded, it isn't about terrorism. If the gun disharged in flight, it could create an explosion (potentially blowing up the aircraft) or puncturing the aircraft (inside to out).

Instead, he decided to make REALLY dumb comments on camera like "I am a former Air Force First Officer and I work for a Congressman. Why would I jeopardize my job with acts of terrorism? Do I look Arab?"

I guess making racist remarks on camera doesn't jeopardize employment.

It truly is a reality show. What I saw last night is common, everyday stuff. In fact, I just had a passenger yelling at me on the phone, telling me I have horrible customer service skills.

I have no clue what more I could have done for this woman.

Congressional employees are the LEAST stable people in the world!!

Is this based on the UK show "Airport" or whatever it's called? Where they go to different airports and just show employees and passengers?

Yes, the guy with the shotgun was a real winner but how about that angry woman who blamed Southwest because SHE arrived 20 minutes before her flight and it took 40 to get through security! HELLO????? Is there anyone on this planet who doesn't know you need to arrive 2 HOURS before your flight?

And did she think that Southwest should schedule another flight just for her because she was about to miss a day of work? Talk about deflecting responsiblity.

She had an incredibly ugly attitude

zoney, I honestly don't know how you do it

omg...i was going to make an airline thread yesterday
once again, zoney and i have had the same thought

i like the show too

i've watched it since the premier. usually i hate reality shows and the like. this one seems different tho. perhaps i just feel a connection because my dad used to work for a major airline (not southwest tho). i can also relate to the employees. even tho i don't work for an airline, i do work in a highly customer service oriented job. i feel their pain.

the worst job anyone could ever have is to work in the lost luggage department for an airline

Zoney, I thought of you as I watched this show last night

The manager lady (the blonde) or whatever deserves some kind of award or something for being able to keep her cool around all those irate passengers
