Filed under WTF?!?

So apparently you can get arrested for having sex on a commercial airplane.  That part’s not news, nor does it surprise me.  But what does surprise me was that it was oral sex – IN COACH.

Now the couple in question allegedly repeatedly engaged in oral sex on an Allegiant flight from Medford to Las Vegas.  If you know anything about Allegiant’s non-Hawaii flights, you’ll know these are on MD80 aircraft, and the seats are packed in there tighter than a LCC CEO’s pocketbook (the damn thing seats 150, and a similar one from American only seats 140).  But a blowjob?  In coach?  There’s barely enough room in coach for a handy, much less a blowjob.

What was my point?  Oh I give up anymore…

My first prediction: There will be blood!

So it turns out that Delta is trying out a self-boarding process in Las Vegas and Atlanta.  I don’t know how the damn thing works, but it’s to “free up the boarding agents to deal with passengers other issues”.

Translation: We can fire more people and make more money.

This is gonna be ugly, I bet.  And as I said, there’s going to be blood – somehow, somewhere.  People are going to board out of order, take on a dozen carryons, etc, and this whole system will just gum up the works even more.

Automation is good.  Just not this kind of automation.
