Wow. You know, for all that is wrong with US Airways, it’s weird that the CEO of Continental apologized for calling them “the ugly girl”. I mean, there is honestly so much more that could be used. First off, they’re not called US Scareways for nothing. Sure, they have the hero, Sullenberger. But every time I’ve mentioned having to fly them, people always ask if I’m going to be landing in a corn field. Funny, I have no idea where the corn field idea came from (after all, it was a United DC10 that crashed in Iowa, leaving parts in a corn field nearby), but it just goes to show. Not a lot of good press for US Airways.
But being called the ugly girl?
