DailyDirt: People Are Stupid, So They Don't Question Sky Law…

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

If you’re traveling for the upcoming holidays, you might think that a “passenger bill of rights” is supposed to have kicked in already, so you don’t have to worry about being stuck on a plane sitting on the runway for more than 4 hours. That probably won’t happen, but if the weather is bad, be prepared to have your flight canceled instead. Here are just a few interesting links on airline operations.

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Gotta love the unintended consequences

Canceling flights doesn’t sound like a bad call to make. if there’s a chance that my flight is going to be delayed for 4hrs, I wanna know and airlines are usually pretty bad about giving passengers definite answers. This way, at least fliers will get a definite answer and be able to arrange for other means of transportation, if possible.

regarding in flight porn. I once took a flight from Barcelona to Rome and the in flight magazine had adverts for phone sex. That struck me as amazingly bad placement as they are reaching some of the only target market that was completely physically unable to make use of their service. Kudos to the magazine sales person though.
