    Disgusting behavior by the FAs. If there was ever a time for an exception to the rules, this was it. Semper fi.

    Why are you digging up a year-old story?

    A colleague of mine just brought this article to my attention.

    While I realize it's important to post certain news articles in a timely manner, if there is an issue that should be brought up, and not glossed over, then the article should be posted, if relevant.

    Nothing wrong with it. I recalled the story from when it originally appeared here. However, I would have never guessed that it was over a year ago. Time flies.

    It would be nice to know what happened after the initial uproar.

    This was the first I heard of it (I've only been on MP since May I think). Thanks for sharing, and don't sweat the small stuff.

    No part of my comment was even indirectly aimed toward a member of MilePoint, so I'm a bit confused as to what the heck you're talking about.
    My ire was 100% directed at the Delta FAs, and my comment was 100% in support of Lance Corporal Brown, based on my annoyance at the event, and also in my feelings of solidarity as a fellow veteran.

    I'm sorry that you found my expressing disgust with the FAs' apparent behavior "rude." However, if that's the case, then I wonder why you bothered to post the article in the first place.

    I also wonder what the truth really is. The FAs can essentially do whatever they want, even more so with doors closed. It's technically against the law to not comply with crew instructions, no? I've seen pax relocated/shuffled at all stages of flight. I know there are always some bad apples in every bunch, but come on.....

    If there is an issue that "should be brought up" and "not glossed over", it's probably worth including some commentary
    100% support of either party without bothering to get the full story is irresponsible imo.
