    So I'm talking with this guy who was delayed out of ORD into IAH missing his connecting flight to VPS. He is furious that CO won't call from the aircraft, in flight mind you, to have a motorized buggy waiting for him (I think he genuinely could use some help) at the gate to take him to his connecting flight. In addition, he's furious that they won't book him on the next flight (it's full, he'll fly standby), and to make matters worse - they won't comp his flight, just a meal voucher. Oh...and he's E class.

    Question?: What year does he think he's in?
    Answer: I think he thinks he's flying Eastern Airlines in the 1980's.

    Maybe he's LH HON plus. They're not supposed to miss connections.

    Sumpin' doesn't add up. He boarded and pushed back on a flight to which he already knew he would miss the connection for?

    Continental does have those satellite phones on the planes, right? If the buggy is that important to him, call up Continental on that phone. Yes, those are rhetorical comments.
