CO is obviously trying to segregate the trouble makers from the rest of the group!

compensation?

Only a group of 14 FTers would ask how many OnePass miles we will get for this 150 foot 1 hour "flight"

Anyone call WE CARE yet to hear them say, "The elevator ride was complimentary, therefore you are not entitled to compensation."

Seriously, we're still stick, 14 FTers and 2 very professional Continental employees stick between the 15th and 16th floors. We're becoming great friends!

That was about the same amount of time we were "stuck" in an aluminum tube this morning, but we had a view, AVOD and champagne.
