Lest you think I am a JetBlue bigot....
I actually hate ALL airlines, pretty much. So, since I know the JetBlueMeanies are reading this, I figure I'll throw them a bone and pick on another airline:
As I type this (4:30 PM EDT, August 4, 2008), a work colleague is sitting on the tarmac at JFK on an American Airlines flight (#85) to San Francisco that was supposed to leave at 3:00 PM.
They have to replace the co-pilot's seat because it is broken.
Let me repeat: THE CO-PILOT'S SEAT IS BROKEN!
A couple of thoughts:
1. Aren't these crew the same people who always seem to cut in front of me at security so they can get to their plane to make sure everything is all set?
2. Nobody noticed this BEFORE they imprisoned a planeful of innocent travelers? I am willing to bet that some pilot's fat ass was sitting in that seat two hours earlier. He couldn't say anything?
This is why we hate you, airline industry. HATE!
