What Has Happened To The Airlines?

I guess I haven't flown for awhile, and maybe it's just me, but flying is a nightmare! The airline personnel act like they are doing you a favor by letting you on the plane! At check in, I felt like I was a naughty little kid who needed to be scolded for this and that!

Then, once you get on the plane, they don't feed you any more so my stomach grumbled for 5 1/2 hours. We didn't even get peanuts! They had some sandwiches for sale, but we didn't bring cash, and besides! After paying over $1,000 to fly, the least they could do is throw a few morsels our way after the hours we spent to board the plane in the first place!

Maybe I am just being a whiner, but I used to really enjoy flying, but now it is just painful! I am going to look into a boat.

Just another reason why I refuse to fly.

Flying these days is equivalent to paying strangers hundreds of dollars to physically and emotionally abuse you at 30,000 feet for hours at a time.

Maybe our country has gone to the masochists because if we don't enjoy the experience, why then do we keep going back for more?

Stupid airlines, but also stupid us for not protesting more. But then again, we have corporations who pay for their employees to travel and they don't really care what happens to those of us in Economy because they aren't sitting there!
