More Slimy American Airlines Stories

posted in Aviation, Business |

Elliot.org brings us more stories of how American Airlines is manipulating the system to avoid having to pay bump-fees. The only thing is, this isn’t some new tactic created since the bump penalties were recently increased- they have been doing this kind of stuff for over a year.

Just keep in mind- this is an organization that is only still in existence because we bailed them out- $15 BILLION in tax-payer dollars were given to the major airlines, and they still treat their customers like crap who have no other options. If we let more of the “old guard” go out of business rather than bailing them out, it opens up more space for the newer service-oriented (yet typically less expensive) airlines to thrive which would be a great thing all around.
