You know, in the good old days back when, i worked for Delta Airlines and got to fly for free. I would get a pass to anywhere i wanted to go and i
would ride the employee bus to the terminal, to the gate and i would have to tell the gate person i was an employee, show my pass, and i would be told
i had to wait. The only way i could board the plane was if there was enough room. Sometimes i'd wear my uniform, sometimes i wouldnt. It didnt
matter and it wasnt required.
When everyone boarded, they would then signal me that it was ok to board. I beleive this is the procedure for most airlines. I dont know if these
were the circumstances here, but i find it "funny" that it wasnt clear he was an employee.
I think its probably the Platinum Flyer business, in which case, the man violated rules. Just because you're a frequent flyer doesnt give you Cart
Blanche to do what you want to do.
And did you hear? A toddler was kicked off a flight today for talking too much?
I dont have a link but i heard it on Fox.
