A Terrorist Organization is Firmly in Place at Airports – It’s Called United Airlines

The Latest in Their Campaign to Attack Passengers

Give a company a near monopoly and they will not act very nice or in the customer’s interest.  Case in point, United Airlines.  If one defines Terrorism as the process of changing people’s behavior by fear of attacks, United fits that bill.  Recently a woman traveling with her two year old bought both of them a ticket.  But the airline gave away the two year old’s seat and she didn’t complain.  Here’s why.

 “I was told if we refund you anything right now, we’re going to have to cancel the rest of your flight arrangements to Hawaii,” she told KITV.

She told Hawaii News Now that she considered protesting, but was scared to make a scene. “I started remembering all those incidents with United on the news. The violence. Teeth being knocked out,” she said.

So the mother continued on with her flight, holding her two year old instead of having the child safely in a seat, which she apparently paid $1,000 for.  What did United do?

A United spokesman told The Post that the airline would compensate Yamauchi “as a goodwill gesture” and will work with employees to avoid a repeat of the mistake.
“We deeply apologize to Ms. Yamauchi and her son for this experience,” the spokesman wrote in a statement, although he did not answer questions about why the child was allowed to fly without a seat, and whether it was safe.
Meanwhile of course, the United campaign to make every last dime from its passengers continues.  Even if it means endangering a child and potentially violating safety standards.
