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.
