Seriously, this woman is the case for term limits in Congress.

-----

“I was the last passenger on the plane,” Ms. Simon wrote on Facebook. “A Texas congressman, a nice guy, sat down next to me. He said was glad I had made it on the flight. I showed him my boarding pass with my seat, 1A, printed on it. He said, ‘You know what happened, right? Do you know who’s in your seat?’ I said no. He told me that it was Jackson Lee, a fellow U.S. congresswoman who regularly does this, that this was the third time he personally had watched her bump a passenger.”

I'd say it goes to the Congresswoman, she can cause all sorts of trouble for the airlines so they are scared shitless of her.

Agreed! That shouldn't be allowed to happen. She's still an asshole for doing it unless there was some national emergency.

There was another Congressman on the same flight content to sit coach. I'd say Jackson Lee should be DB'ed for also trying to cry racism and shame the wronged passenger in this event.

If it meant getting on the plane or not, maybe...but no excuse for needing to sit in First Class.

Fixed that for her.

I don't even think she's an asshole for doing it if they let her. She's an asshole for calling the person who is mad that she got screwed out of her seat a racist because she complained about it. Probably best to just lie low and keep using your clout.

I agree. That makes her a double asshole.

what kind of government emergency requires a congressman to sit in first class as opposed to coach? the plane doesn't arrive early for first class passengers.

I'm just wondering what an airline gate employee is supposed to do when a sitting congressperson is demanding they be seated in first class. Say no? My guess is she doesn't take well to be people telling her no.

Nas blames it on the airline, not her. The first thing he did in this thread was agree about that. He'll keep walking it back as his position becomes more indefensible (he already has), but his cards are already on the table.

She would undoubtedly have gotten the employee or flight attendant reprimanded if not fired. Probably would've said they were racist, like she did the woman who's seat she took. Then the story would've been "RACIST UA EMPLOYEE MICROAGGRESSIONS WOMAN OF COLOR CONGRESSWOMAN OF COLOR, ITS LIKE SLAVERY ALL OVER AGAIN", and I think everyone in the world knows it. The expectation is not on UA to enforce basic common sense and decency on people, she should've known better and blaming the airline is stupid.

An aside, I am not looking forward to returning to Chicago and once again experiencing this type of behavior on a daily basis.

In which case the airline and her would once again be sharing DB honors.

Where is the cutoff for clout with an Airline?

I sit on the board of a Fastpitch softball league.

This is an impressive end around of the ol racist claim though.

I got preferential treatment and you have a problem with it because I'm black....is a new one to me.


I don't fly other than for vacations. There's a lot of weirdness in the airline industry.
