Dude, What a Jip…



US Airways is giving the passangers from flight 1549 super-elite status… for one frickin’ year. One year. Seriously, these people have survived something, all of them btw, that, statistically speaking, they had hardly any chance of ever experiencing and they get one year. Maybe a lifetime might be cool? Seeing as none of them will ever want to fly again, let alone fly on your stupid airline…

Some who were on the plane – brought down by a flock of geese after takeoff from La Guardia Airport on Jan. 15 – said the temporary tease of first-class perks is for the birds.
“I think if you survive a plane crash, being upgraded permanently is a good gesture too,” said Fred Berretta, 41, of Charlotte, NC, where the Airbus A320 was headed.

Manhattanite Tess Sosa, who escaped the sinking plane with her husband and two small children, thought the airline was too focused on self-congratulations – and “they want to exonerate themselves as much as they can.”

“They are happy they had such amazing results, and they applaud themselves, and then give us a small token?” she said. “That’s how I take it.”openquote
