Spirits sucks big way! I hope they go out of business soon!
Oh, how sad, I have flown Spirit many times in the last 2-3 years and I can not remember a single time any of the attendants were anything less than great! They were funny, polite, quick to help, they treated us like we really mattered. I love Spirit Airlines. I have been on other airlines where the attendants were awful and snobbish. I have a hard time believing this article.
Anyone who drinks airline water (not bottled) is taking theil life in their hands. They keep it in the tanks for eons.
I'm sorry, but when you make the choice to become a flight attendant, you also make the choice to cater to people!! Please make note that I did not say that you have to take abuse. What I have found is that for many, it is just a job that gets them a paycheck. For others, they really care about the passengers. They do their best to make the flight as pleasant as possible. When I fly,all I want is a smile, something to drink and to get to my destination safely.
i once made the mistake of flying on united airlines!
Most of the time the attendants are courteous, but on one flight I was asleep and an attendant actually kicked me - while I was asleep.
So some flight attendants are rude. Big deal! Most of them are HOT!
you probably only fly domestic where the newhires fly. Get on a long-haul-flight. with auntie mame and a her bithchie atitude and THEN you will see the difference
I don't have problems with flight attendants but I'm a small person and I do have problems being sat on by overweight passengers and these days even a middle age spread sitting next to me is enough. I scan the lounge area before take off to tally my odds. If the airlines make those seats any smaller I'll be DOA or origami .It's one thing to be pinned to your seat for a couple of hours and another pinned for 11. I'm part of that endangered specie "The Satapons" and our numbers are rapidly diminishing. If I don't happen to have an aisle seat I politely ask that (no hurry) but when you can could you let me out I need to use the bathroom because I know that they are going to have to push up and back out up the aisle and it's all going to be "butt" in the face. We all get "butt" in the face. I've become pretty coldblooded about things lately and now, and I'm still polite, I bring to the attention of my fellow passenger that I need to move my arms, or shoulder or leg. By saying this we can both share the discomfit I'm in for the duration of the trip because now they're aware of it. I don't know how the airlines want to work it out but maybe there should be more flight classes ie. economy, premium economy, business, first class, and for anyone over 175lbs a class "those with special needs" and want additional comfort 'cos premium isn't going to cut it. Or bottom line buy two seats. Flying these days should be classified as cruel and unusual punishment it's a flying warehouse. However, having said all that I try never to be unkind to the attendants. There's no reason for us to believe that their morale on the job should or is always top notch and we all experience it at one time or another. And by the way if you don't like the food or don't want to find yourself having to buy it then pack yourself a nice cheese sarnie, a banana, and a kit kat bar and maybe bring one to give the person next to you.
Although I enjoyed your post, wouldn't that extra kit kat just add to the girth of your fellow traveler, meaning that you'd be wedged in even tighter?
All I need is to get from point A to point B as quickly and cheaply as possible. If I want water, I bring it with me. Food, I eat before I leave for the airport. Soda and peanuts?? Bad combo when traveling (gas, anyone?) Cramped spaces; pay an extra $10 and get the wider seats option. Don't want to do any of these things? Then, DRIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!That is why airlines keep raising prices and flight attendants are rude: They have to deal with prissies, ninnies, divas, and overall scary people who don't like flying and need to make everyone else pay for it.
happy2bgridfreeI read your stupid comment. Did I mention I wanted a full meal? I am a SEASONED FLYER that can fly Stand By... can YOU do that? Did I say had a carry on ? Do you know how to read? I check my bags in. What I do expect is at least a glass of WATER without having to fork over the $$$. Water is a simplistic request, I am NOT asking for booze or food. As I seasoned traveler and growing up in the AIRLINE INDUSTRY, I do think I know what I am talking about. Spirit and Delta are the WORST of the WORST airlines.
Uh ... you may be a "seasoned flyer " ( yippee for you ), but apprently you don't know how to simply hit the "reply" button.Oh, and BTW: You'll get a "glass" of water for "free." I know because when traveling with my mother, she asked for a glass of water to take a pill. You'll pay for a bottle of water. And yeah, I know how to read. You original post was one long kvetch.
Nope you don't have a clue...no wonder you responded back.
