Will airline service ever be great again? The "back of the bus" has turned into the back of the plane — with discrimination based on class, social status… and money. When airlines sell more seats than a plane will hold, they're allowed to force one paid passenger to give up a seat to another. Video of a doctor dragged screaming down the aisle or United Airlines plane is evidence of an increasingly common practice. And First Class isn't immune. With just four main carriers left because of consolidation, passenger service is a casualty of the drive for profit and America's increased wealth inequality.
Cancelled Flight for LAX's Iconic Encounter Restaurant If you've never had a Mad Men-style cocktail or done some Space Age dining with amazing views at the Encounter restaurant in the Theme Building at Los Angeles International Airport, it's too late. The four-legged spider-looking building constructed in 1961, quietly shut down at the end of last year. Brett Snyder is blogger at the Cranky Flier , an LA aviation website.
