But that wasn't enough...he had to walk through the entire plane politely presenting the brochure to everyone, even when it became awkward.

I felt bad for the guy because the whole situation was absolutely cringe worthy - I breathed a sigh of relief when it was over. No doubt though, this sales pitch was a mandate from HQ - and the petition is dead on, it felt cheap.
AA has been doing this on every flight for quite sometime now.

All the airlines have shrunk to new lows. Itís the world we live in.
