Not on one of my flights, but I had a co-worker who encountered this, and his FA's seriously contemplated saying something about needed to change the t-shirts, but in the end, did not. Personally, if I encountered this, I'm not sure what I would do, but I would probably be inclined ask them to change shirts/cover them up.

Tacky shirt, even if the message is true.

How can it be true that it never works?

It's a deliberate hyperbole. I get the message, especially after flying AA recently and experiencing high-speed internet for half the price.

On what grounds? What if they refused? Would you have them kicked off?

Why do they continue giving a company money if they don't like the services provided?

Sounds like Stockholm Syndrome to me.

Isn't this what Southwest does when it considers a tee shirt to be offensive?

Revoke their status if I was King of the world. I would also fix the wi-fi as well.
