Dear US Air


Dear US Air,

Unlike OJ Simpson, running through airports is not a core skill set for me. I am a slightly overweight tech geek with a need to get from point A to point B in a reasonable time period.

Please don’t drop me at an airport with 6 minutes to catch my connecting flight. Please don’t tell me they are holding the flight…I have heard that lie before.

There is nothing more disheartening than careening up to a gate and seeing a closed door and no gate agent. There is nothing more disingenuous than a gate agent returning after the jetbridge has been moved to tell you that “We are always the last to know, no one asked us to hold the plane.”

So, at this point I think I need to tell you that it is best if we don’t see each other any more. I know we have mutual friends, and I know that you might buy American Airlines. That would be awkward.

So, don’t call me anymore. I am unfriending you on Facebook, I am unfollowing you on Twitter.

PS Please send back my Star Alliance frequent flyer points.

PPS I do like the big, moving “First in Flight” mobile in the Charlotte Airport. It is cute.

PPPS An upgrade to first class would make me reconsider my opinion….if you are listening…or if you even care.
