So last week when I was flying back from Oregon on an airline, which shall remain nameless, (United) there were a number of empty seats on the plane, both in front and in back of me. The door had closed and no other passengers were allowed on the plane. My buddy and I inquired about moving to another seat as there were three of us in our row and a little extra space would have been most welcome. The flight attendant said we could move to the seats behind us, (which wouldn’t have improved our situation at all because there was a least one person in every row) but we couldn’t move forward because those seats were in the “Economy Plus” section. For those of you who are unfamiliar with “Economy Plus” it’s where you pay more for a few more inches of legroom. Now I am but a lowly consumer, but don’t you think that is a bit silly? It would have cost the airline, which shall remain nameless, (United) absolutely nothing to let us switch our seats and it would have been a nice little public relations move on their part. There, I feel better now. Thanks for listening. Sometimes it’s the little things that driving me barking mad...
