Yesterday we brought you the story of Delta Airlines and their shabby treatment of a woman with muscular dystrophy. Certainly we didn’t mean to single out any ONE particular airline for being filth. American Airlines is just as evil as Delta and probably does an even worse job of running an airline.
Yesterday the company’s PR flak actually bragged about charging U.S. soldiers being deployed to Iraq “only” $100 per pag. That means every soldier that travels on American Airlines from their home base to where they’re being deployed from with their ISSUED training gear has to cough up an extra three hundred bucks. Other airlines like Southwest and Continental routinely waive any excess baggage fees for U.S. soldiers.
