  • The joys of mass transit and travelling en masse (airlines, etc)

    A thread for all those stories about all those average everyday lives and plans being thoroughly screwed over, disrupted, disturbed, inconvenienced and otherwise hijacked by the few.
    (including nonsensical escalations and misapplication of policies, regulations, etc)

    A couple recent examples:

    Air Canada passenger details alleged garbage dispute with flight attendant

    “Ellen Flemming talks about an alleged conflict with an Air Canada flight attendant over garbage at her seat on a flight from Kelowna to Saint John, N.B. Air Canada claims the woman “exhibited aggressive behaviour” and allegedly “kicked a crew member."”

    A Delta Flight to Europe Turned Around Halfway Through (the Rumored Reason is Utterly Ridiculous) |

    “"We were an hour outside of Europe, somebody pooped or put something down the toilet that didn't go, broke the toilets. Guess where we are? Back at JFK," he wrote.

    Broke all the toilets? Surely no one can be quite so accident-prone. After all, Delta's Boeing 767's have six toilets.”

    “I drift to this disturbing nook of my mind because the Mail claims the reason this plane flew all the way back to America is because it would be easier to fix the toilet -- or toilets -- there.

    I pause for flushing sounds to invade your mind and incite guttural noises to emerge from your principle orifice of noise.”

    This is What Happened in the Cockpit on the Transatlantic Delta Flight Where All the Toilets Broke
    It was the flight that Bravo TV's Andy Cohen didn't enjoy. This is the story as told by one of the pilots on board.

    Absurdly Driven looks at the world of business with a skeptical eye and a firmly rooted tongue in cheek.

    "We all had plans in Nice, you know."

    “It all started, he told me, with one toilet that broke.

    A thoughtless passenger had stuffed, who knows, diapers or some other unhelpful object down it. ...”

    “Meanwhile, however, there was one true hero. ...”

    “"Never in all my years of flying have I seen something like this," he told me.” ...
