How much could I pay to watch a public stoning of various levels of airport staff?

I was released from a job in Phoenix early... so I figured I could get a standby flight. No problem... My flight is at 5:00pm, and there appears to be a standby flight at 11:24am. PERFECT! ...no  bags to check... I could just walk into the gate. it's 10:45 now... gotta rush...

United ticket chick says its not their flight... It's a US Airways flight... sure... they codeshare all the time... but they won't put me on that flight because they would lose revenue. But wait... if you pay us $75 to print a REAL ticket (as opposed to an e-ticket), US Airways will take that as payment. Do that? Pay $75? SURE! She even checked US Airways

10:55... hopping on the shuttle to get 2 terminals down...  still 30 minutes to flight... I can TOTALLY make it... security line is short... walk up to the counter...

11:01... "Oh... I'd love to put you on the flight... but our computers lock us out of the check-in process 30 minutes before departure... and the flight's not late. I can't put you on it. Sorry!"

11:15... "Well... we can put you on the 1:55pm... sorry... no... we won't refund the $75... thats money in our pocket and we don't care enough about you.

11:20... "TSA doesn't allow bottles larger than 3oz for carry-on... yours are 3.3oz... do you want to check your bag or would you like me to throw away your $30 in skin and haircare product?"

I KNEW I should have flown southwest...

Southwest has a better line now. You don't just get A group, but A and some number in line. Seems to work a little better now. And new planes with comfy seats.

yeah... I fly them a lot actually... in fact, I should have a free ticket or two soon... but this was a last minute thing and you have to go to a little extra effort to get to southwest from the corporate booking site. I just honestly spaced it.

In retrospect, southwest all the way. :)

Southwest is great. I just had a bad time with them my last trip down to John Wayne Airport, but other than that it's nothing like my American or Continental horror stories.

Only for things they want to take home for themselves at the end of the day.

Absolutely agree about Southwest for regional flights. Cheaper, nicer staff, and free snacks.

And if you sit in the back, you can make friends with the flight attendants (especially on not-full flights) because they stand back there and talk shit about the people in the front, and you can sometimes get free drinks from it.

perhaps they wanted to keep you around longer to stare dreamily at you?

Just a thought ;)
