    First off, I didn't write the piece, I just highlighted it.

    But yeah, now that you mention it, it could be that 18 hour flight to Australia where I was stuck staring into the section where people had little beds and tables and the attendants brought them hot towels and new pajamas.  Or maybe it was the time when, after a zillion flights, they informed me I was getting an upgrade to 1st class, only to come to me at the last second and tell me that someone had showed up willing to pay for first class, and oh, since they'd sold my seat in steerage, I was now actually getting bumped from the plane. And then I missed a meeting and lost a contract.

    Or maybe it was just the 'it never happens on Southwest' flight where the A/C went out, the temp inside rose to sauna levels, the pilot insisted we close the shades in an effort to cool the plane, and the next two hours were heat-stroke darkness punctuated by vomiting.

    One of these things may have influenced me.

      I just noticed you did NOT write that...man, is my face red...

      And thanks for the personal note. I apologize sincerely for putting those words in your mouth.

      I hesitantly insist that my original point still stands; airlines aren't for poor people OR the rich. We get what we pay for...and I don't see it as a class war lesson or beef at all.
