Have you ever missed a flight because you were running late? Have you ever asked the counter to call ahead and ask them not to shut the door because you were on your way only to find your flight being pushed away when you arrive at the gate?
If you are Socialist Mayor of New York Bill De Blasio you don’t have to worry about such things because you can have your security folks call the airlines and hold the plane for you.
Notoriously late Mayor Bill de Blasio kept more than 100 people waiting at the gate to board a JetBlue flight from JFK Airport to Puerto Rico last month because he was running late and had the plane held for him, DNAinfo New York has learned. DNA Info
The people who made it on time were not only held up but they were not allowed to board the plane until the Socialist royalty arrived and his security folks could do a sweep of the plane. Why do they need to do that? Are not the plane and the airport supposed to be secure? We spend billions of dollars for security so why does his detail need to clear the plane?
Why is it this guy is entitled to special treatment? The airline reportedly stated that they sometimes hold aircraft for dignitaries as a courtesy.
In other words, you peons need to get to the airport extra early so some TSA goon can feel you up and rummage through your undershorts while De Blasio and other special folks arrive at their own leisure and if they happen to be late you can just wait a little longer while your betters are taken care of.
The airline should have boarded the passengers who were responsible enough to get there on time and if the mayor was not there when the doors closed he could be rescheduled for another flight.
Do you suppose Billy boy would allow you to call court and tell them to hold the docket up until you arrived because you were running late?
I think we all know the answer to that. Rules and being responsible are for the serfs in society. Our overlords are not responsible and they certainly do not follow the rules.
New York deserves this puke.
The airline deserves to be fined.
The passengers who were inconvenienced deserve a refund…
Or free drinks!
Never surrender, never submit.
