Hey monkeys, title is pretty self-explanatory, and is based off of the recent happenings with United. Anyways, I'll start. Probably around 12 years ago I flew from South Carolina to Wisconsin as an unaccompanied minor. Everything was going great and the airlines make it all operate very smoothly. An attendant walks you to your next gate and makes sure someone is keeping an eye on you at all times. However on the connecting flight to Wisconsin something rather terrible happened.
I was sitting comfortably near the front of the plane, when all of a sudden a flight attendant came up to me and requested that I switch seats with someone who "wanted to be closer to a bathroom". Being raised to respect authoritative figures, and being on my own I didn't really think I had an option to say "no" so I said that was okay. As I walked towards the back of the plane I realized what a dirty trick had been played on me as I saw the seat-switcher had actually wanted to change because the ham-beast in the seat next to him was spilling all over into the other seats. I still remember how he just kind of looked at me as he walked past me to take my seat, screw that guy. They had picked me since a) I was a kid and wouldn't say no, and b) I would be the only one small enough to actually fit in the seat. Safe to say once my parents found that out the airline got an earful and in the end they got free tickets to keep quiet about it. All in all quite the experience!
So there's mine, what's your worst experience with an airline?
