The pregnant woman with a toddler who was sitting behind him has said she wasn't afraid until dude started getting manhandled and now her and her toddler are traumatized. Lawsuits lining up left and right. As well they should.

I was traumatized just by watching the video.

They already have that, it's called 1st class. You don't get beat up there. Only the poor folks get an ass woopin.

Tell me again how important it was to get that flight crew there for that flight that might have been otherwise cancelled?

It would have been a lot cheaper to just up the offer to 5 grand. I would have eagerly gave my seat up for that.

...unless you had a busy medical practice with patients who depend on your being there on time. Yes I've seen that the airline had options, and further that it was a courtesy to a different airline. Or did I misunderstand that tidbit of news?

You misunderstand what I'm saying. If they offered 5 grand for a volunteer, I'm sure there would have been several takers. It would have to be some urgent shit for me to turn down that amount.

I think I read that the industry standard was a max of 4x the ticket, or about $800 in this case. Guess it's some kind of collusion so some airlines don't get a competitive advantage when word gets out they give better bumps.

There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide. -Camus

Better bumps will be the new competitive advantage. Watch and see.

OK, I'm seeing 4X the ticket price as a limit, but there are lots of whores cheaper than $5k. Not sure I will admit to misunderstanding anything. I'd've taken that kind of offer myself, but I don't have a medical practice. Given what it can cost to go to the doctor, $5k for a one day delay could be chump change. There has to be some sort of consideration for the occupation of the displaced, right?
