DailyDirt: On The Way, The Paper Bag Was On My Knee...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There doesn't seem to be a "Black Friday" for getting good deals on booking flights. Maybe there is a single day of the year to buy really discounted plane tickets -- if you know what day that is, please let everyone know in the comments. But technically, it probably takes more than a single day of ticket sales for the airline industry to get into the black for the year. In any case, here are some more stories about airlines and how they treat their customers. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Just for fun:

    The onion has a piece about new fees. I hope the airlines don't see it, as it may give them ideas:

    The pudding guy hopefully used up his miles...

    Just saw that American Airlines filed for bankruptcy...

    So I assume those pudding miles will be gone pretty soon.
