The lady who the congresswoman took the seat of is an attorney, great luck of the draw. Anyways, I'd like to see current and past reciepts of the congresswomans airline tickets and who paid the fares. GOvenrment officials are not allowed to travel first class unless the difference is paid personally by the government officials own money. It's a strict policy for set within the GSA.

What scum.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who was accused by a United Airlines passenger of bumping her from a first-class seat, said in a Twitter screed on Tuesday that she believes the incident is all about race.

She would like to make it about race, not special political favoritism, just like you are doing carrying that racist torch for her here.

But I'm used to that from you.


I will not be baited by your personal attacks here.

Have a great holiday season!

She was a bumped because of political favoritism, not race. Quoted from your own OP...


It turns out that the politician who got the seat was Shelia Jackson lee, and she KNOWS why the woman that lost her seat made a big deal out of it.

Because Lee is black. Yep, you got it

I didn't 'got that', you did.




United Airlines says that the original passenger used her app to cancel her request for the flight because it was delayed. I assume that they have proof of that?

I'd like to see proof the Congresswoman used her personal money to upgrade to first class.

If you have high status on United, which it appears the flight attendant said she did, you often don't have to pay for an upgrade and get what is called a CPU, complimentary premier upgrade.

Now, she could have pressed the issue and had a gate agent try to jump her over other higher status passengers but that creates a paper trail as well.

I would be violently pissed if I forked out for a 1st class ticket and I lost my seat to scum of scum.....a politician.


Right, left, black or white I would be mad as hell at the bottom feeding scum.


I pay for my seat I expect to GET MY BLOODY SEAT.


And i hope the Congresswomen was not flying on government buisness.......politicians flying on buisness should go cattle class to save money.

if this were true, then the airline let a person on the plane without a ticket.

They didin't. The issue became apparent when her paper boarding pass didn't scan at the gate and she was informed that she didn't have a seat assignment.

from the link in the original post



Jean-Marie Simon, 63, said she was tossed out of her first-class seat on a Houston-to-Washington, DC, flight Dec. 18 to make way for Jackson Lee.


this makes it sound as though the passenger was in the seat, then asked to leave.

She wasn't. Her boarding pass scanned red which means no seat assignment.

The story is from the 23rd and we've been covering the details over on Flyertalk.com and this aspect of it is well known.

We all know how this played out:

"Do you know who I AM!" , "Get me your supervisor! "

Got I hope there is video of the whole thing.....

Political favoritism. Then the good senator cries racism! to cover it up.


You should have seen the look on a City Council person when I had to refuse their party for lack proper amount of adults to kids ratio when I used to manage a Dave and Busters way back in the day.

I can only imagine the arrogance of a Federal elected official.

All of them would use you to walk over a pothole of water so their shoes don't get wet.

They have become the French Aristocrats of our time. They should look back at how that worked out.

Sen. Debbie Stabenow actually helped us out personally with a healthcare.Gov issue that no one could solve, so I shouldn't say they are all bad.

Just 98% of them

SJL made it about race though! Instead of just apologizing like she started out doing SHE made it about race when she realized she had an opportunity to call someone a racist.


Who said she said that though? The article? Or were you there? Got video of her "angry outburst"?

Me thinks the cover story this case is race, the reality is political favoritism.

Better sweep that under the rug, post haste...

Quick, come up with another reason. Mainly because someone saw who got the seat and, you guessed it, the decision was political.

I believe there's a rule within GSA travel that states position over general public should not be be taken advantage of. I'll have to look it back up. Once upon a time I was too a GS.

I'm sure there is some sort of ethics/conduct clause but at this point we don't know how the seat became available.
