airlines and the caste system
homeplaceofthefuture daily log 4949
Nowhere in the world is the caste system so alive and well than in the airline industry. I’m not bragging, but I have status……and I could care less. If I see a check-in line for the main cabin and I’m business class I will get in that line – we are all going to same place!
This week in NYC I got in line with the commoners for an international flight because I didn’t feel like walking around the corner for business/first customers. I wait in line for about 5 minutes and the attendant at the counter apologized to me for the wait and said I’m sorry you had to wait in this line and that I should have gone to the business counter. How would you respond? Scenarios ran rampant in my mind – should I act rich, should I laugh, should I just say no hablo English? Maybe my favorite joke about old white guys in sports coats seems appropriate here.
I smiled, grabbed my passport and said, “I’m just happy they let me out of my cage this week”
