US Airways management has to listen,
when you have their home number.


I'm on the plane, and they're trying to sell me an airline credit card.

This is a sign of desperation, an airline on its last legs: peddling us credit cards during the flight. It's not enough that they've taken our meals, our leg room, and our on-time departures. Now they take our dignity, by hitting us up for an airline credit card while we are held captive on their smelly planes.

Here's how US Airways does it: they turn one unlucky stewardess into a seat-to-seat saleswoman. She gives you the pitch, then she walks down the aisle with applications, while people try to avoid meeting her gaze. It is awkward.

Now, I hate being bothered on flights. I don't want to hear the safety instructions, I don't want to talk to the person next to me, I don't want to be told when I can and can't use personal electronics, I don't want to hear the annoying pilot telling us we're flying over the Great Goddamn Lakes. I want mandatory and enforced silence, paticularly when I'm traveling with my children.

After the commercial, the stewardess walked down the aisle offering applications to anyone who might be interested. Guess what? Nobody wanted one. Surprise. This proves it is a useless promotion thought up by useless marketing people who should be fired.

We've got to nip this shit in the bud. Today it's credit cards, tomorrow it'll be one long infomercial from the time you takeoff to the time you touch down.

It was time to prank these guys.

I have to comment on this post. I got caught up in the stories that continue at the bottom of each story saga and found the fake Michael Jackson credit card scam. It is a legend in itself and should be remembered every time MJ is mentioned. Using a midget as MJ's 8 year old--- :lol: :lol:

Each scam is a lesson and a warning as well. Now anybody can do this and get away with it? I hope credit card companies are somehow improving their security. This is a warning about security theft and how easy it is and should be a warning to pay careful attention to your credit cards and their use. I'm tempted to destroy mine.

Be very careful.

I agree completely, DO.g's!

Having been a victim of identity theft, I refuse to use my MasterCard online anymore. This holiday season, I'm shopping locally and using cold, hard cash.
