More Air Conditioning Woes on a Plane

Thursday, August 03, 2006

Ever been stuck on a hot airplane? My worst experience was one July on an AA plane in DFW. We spent 3 hours on the tarmac and it was easily over 90 in the cabin. Flight attendants were going up and down the aisle and pouring water on people that looked like they might pass out. Well that experience seems rather nice compared to what happened on a UA flight on Monday.
"I couldn't breathe; I thought I was going to faint," said passenger Sandy Ball, sitting in seat 37C. She later recalled that if the crew's request for two minutes more had expired without action, "I was going to stand up and scream. They endangered our lives putting us on that plane."
Why can the airlines get away with this?

    How anyone can expect people to stay in any enclosed are at those temperatures without air conditioning units
    is unbelievable in this day and age, they should be more responsible and realise they only reason they have a business is because of the passengers.
