Airport Check-In


Monday, June 17, 2013


>
>>It happened at a New York Airport . This is hilarious. I wish I had
>>the guts of this girl. An award should go to the United
>>Airlines gate agent in New York for being smart and funny, while
>>making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably
>>deserved to fly as cargo. For all of you out there who have had to
>>deal with an irate customer, this one is for you.
>>
>>A crowded United Airlines flight was canceled. A single agent was
>>re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travelers.
>>
>>Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped
>>his ticket on the counter and said,
>>
>>"I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS."
>>
>>The agent replied, "I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try help you,
>>but I've got to help these folks first; and then I'm
>>sure we'll be able to work something out."
>>
>>The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the
>>passengers behind him could hear, "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?"
>>
>>Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address
>>microphone. "May I have your attention, please?", she began, her
>>voice heard clearly throughout the terminal."We have a passenger
>>here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him
>>with his identity, please come to Gate 14".
>>
>>With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man
>>glared at the United Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said,
>>"F**k You!"
>>
>>Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry sir, you'll have
>>to get in line for that, too."

    I will be travelling by plane next month and hope that the people I travel with have the same easy going attitude this story portrays. I can never understand why people get so mad at the service staff.

Some of the YouTube videos about the safety procedure spiel are also entertaining!

    I'm betting that dates back pre-9-11 too. Doubt there's be too much levity now-a-days. But it's funny to think about for sure!!!

    This is hysterical but it must be a joke. The company would not allow her to say those things and she would be fired. You did use United which happens to be the worst airline in my opinion. I had a three decade business that required me to fly out of town frequently. The 4 times I used United the flights were delayed more than three hours and one was canceled. Never booked a flight with them again.
