Let them whine, and we'll see if they want some cheese with that.

Step up to the plate and VASTLY improve your service, or get used to getting your a** kicked.

Oh, and thanks for the heads-up on Emirates Airlines, Johnny!

The beauty of foreign stewardesses is enough to make me want to fly on foreign airlines

I remember staying in a hotel in Miami near the airport. There were a lot of foreign airline crews staying there. Watching those Latin American stewardesses made me think I'd died and gone to Heaven.

I think Singapore Airlines was the first, who set the standards for high end service and cute flight attendants.

Then soon afterwards, the rest of the world, sans Uncle Sam, caught up with 'em.

If anything, domestic carriers: US West, United, & American should be called Shank-Air. I think the last time I saw a cute all Yankee staff was on Northwest Air, now about 20 years ago :roll: Afterwards, it was like 'Who Let the Dogs Out' :shock:

Beware of long term engagements with AWs, you may find yourself in a coffin.

BTW, despite settling down with an AW, myself, the warning is still in effect.

I flew with Condor Flugdienst to Frankfurt when leaving the US and to be honest their service was way better than US Airways any day and usually I flew on US Airways to Frankfurt. In that German airline I flew I paid much less than on an American carrier and the service was much much better too.

Thank goodness that I only flew US Airways between Boston and NYC, since one doesn't need much service for a 30 min flight time.

Seriously, that's not an airline by any global standards. It's like traveling in the storage unit of a FedEx cargo plane.

If you travel internationally, I think United Airlines (which is kinda average, BTW), is America's only global airline, since they usually have staff, shared between partner nations esp in overseas trips.

Well previous times when I flew them they had the best prices for crossing the atlantic but then when I found out Condor Flugdienst started flying to my home town I gave them a try and to be honest no regrets cause the service was good and it was a direct flight to Frankfurt instead of making a connection in Philadelphia.
