Last time you flew on a plane…other than Southwest?
For me, it was this weekend to New York. About 5 and a half hours going and closer to 6 coming home. We had to pay for our suitcases…$25 per suitcase each way and all we got on the plane was a free soda….not even a little bag of peanuts or pretzels. Is Southwest the only carrier that still gives you some sort of a snack? . Not that a bag of 8 peanuts or pretzels is a snack but at least it’s something. When did that stop? I know everyone charges for luggage now but the lack of a bag of peanuts stunned me.
As you know we now do OMG stories at 5:35 and 7:35 in the morning. And I don’t know how I missed this one today….especially since it involves flying. I don’t know the specifics as to the airline or destination but a man who weighs over 500 pounds claims he was forced to buy a second ticket. I’m not even sure how they knew how much he weighed as it seems he bought them online. He says when he got to the airport with his two tickets, and boarded the plane he found out his two seats weren’t even next to each other…that one was an aisle seat and the other was by a window several rows away.
