To the A-hole in 29F

To the A-hole in 29F traveling from SNA-SEA today who boarded the plane in worst DYKWIA fashion possible...yelling at the FA hat you're a Dir of Sales having to sit in 29F and AA is NOT an airline: Get over yourself buddy, at least you have a seat on the plane.

To the A-hole in 29F

So this guy was getting on the plane today and started yelling at the FA's that he was a director of sales and couldn't believe he was sitting in 29F. the whole FC cabin thought he was joking until he looked at the FA and said, "What kind of airline is this...this isn't an airlines...you guys are NOT an airline". it was a pathetic attempt to vent about not getting a better seat to an FA. what is she going to do, she's not a magician...Hope I cleared that up...was typing turbo-quick before they closed the door

You should have told him that you have to be a VP or above to get upgraded.

Yes, I meant AS.

And yes, he gives any Director or Biz traveler a bad-wrap. He must be a very new Dir of Sales or extremely high on himself. Toward the end of the flight, the FA said he had no status on AS and actually ended up sitting next to a crying baby

I have my moments when I travel, usually I gently vent to the Gold desk, but I felt really embarrassed for this guy. My 6-month old son has more emotional control. I hope he browses the AS threads to post a complaint about his experience, but sees this post first

Hmm. Did you see the thread where a baby in 29E was complaining about being seated beside another crying baby?

I feel sorry for the mom and kid then. Traveling with an infant is hard enough without having to deal an obnoxious horses *** sitting next to you.

Thanks for clarifying. Agreed a major J/A.

I'd have told him a fake airline like _____ (Delta?) allows his "class" in F.
