Comparing airlines is like discussing the properties of various turds... but this is absolutely horrible. I think I would have ended up in an italian prison."If you consider the entertainment value of armageddon, the future doesn't seem all that dim."

I'd heard that Italians were like this but always passed it off as a stereo type. Looks like there might be some truth to it after all. Can't these people complain to some Italian government entity?Intel Q9550 @3ghz ### Xigmatech HDT-1283

A couple years ago I was on a trip in Brazil. On the way back home I flew on TAM a Brazilian airline. They were late to each connecting flight to the point that they made me miss my flight to New York. They put me up in a hotel overnight and assured me that I would still be able to make my connecting flight from New York to Cleavland. Riiiight! TAM was late yet again coming into New York by about 2hrs and I missed my connecting flight and the airline terminal was closed by the time I got into JFK for my connecting flight. I had to shell out $325 for another nights stay in NY this time. And, then buy a $350 airline ticket because they would not honor the one I had. I couldn't believe it. That was th last time I have flown and really do not want to anytime soon.I.M.O.G. "It's a plugin issue," ...

That is the most horrible story I ever read. I am surprised there wasn't riots by the passengers."There are two kinds of pain. The sort of pain that makes you strong,
or useless pain. The sort of pain that's only suffering. I have no
patience for useless things."

Seems pretty fortunate that there was no violence. I don't think I would have been able to handle myself in this situation, really.
Getting physical wouldn't have gotten anyone to where they were trying to go more quickly, but you can't treat people the way these people were treated.
Also, really good read, as a lot of others have mentioned.
Happy the guy got his luggage back.
