i remain in spain mainly due to planes
dear airlines:
i know many of you are having financial problems. some of you are even in bankruptcy (this means you, us airways).

here are a few insights from a frequent traveler that might shed some light on things:

1. you are, generally, rude & not helpful. you treat me with contempt when i ask you questions...and they are not even stupid questions.

2. overselling my flight by about 800 seats does not help anyone. especially when you run exactly one flight per day from spain to the united states.

3. you are, and forgive me if i mentioned this already, generlly rude and not a all helpful.

4. talking about me in spanish right in front of me is unwise. i actually am not an "ignorant american" looking for special treatment. i took high school spanish, you know.

5. not that this really helps you with your financial woes, but i am beginning to not like you very much. perhaps if you stop treating me like cattle and more like a paying customer i might consider flying with you again. assuming, of course, i actually ever fly with you...given the whole oversold by 800 thing.

hatefully yours,

julia
