Fair question as to why these comments do not end up as front page news.TO Star comes to mind as does National Enquirer.

Probably because the unofficial thoughts expressed by AC's official FT representative and taken out of context on a special-interests internet forum are not particularly newsworthy to the general public

Do you want an official AC presence on FT?

As mentioned, a lot of lurkers do not want to post/express their opinions, but would love to poll on it.


Well, here it is:

Haha I love the immediate response to stalwartly defend the airline. Well done.

That portion of my comment was meant to reflect that media outlets like the CBC take a lone customer's complaints - which are often illegitimate - and make it news. It's a business decision I'm surprised AC is making to have a company rep make something comments like Ben's in a public forum.

so 87% so far prefer unfiltered communication.
From the poll respondents, it is obvious FT is quite a higher percentage than 0.0000001%

Hopefully the regular haters get the message. As was said by a wise person, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few!

Looks like only literally 0.00000001% of the people on FT are not happy with Ben.

Ben = Celebrity, confirmed on flyertalk.

Unfortunately the noisy minority often win out.
