ANSETT AUSTRALIA AIRLINES PUTS OFF ***S
It was reported that an employee for Ansett Australia (Airline), who
happens to have the last name of ***, got on a plane recently using the
company's "Free Flight" offer for staff. However, when Mr. *** tried
to take his seat, he found it being occupied by a fare paying passenger.
So, not to make a fuss, he simply chose another seat. Unknown to
Mr. *** another Ansett flight at the airport experienced mechanical
problems. The passengers of this flight were being re-routed to
various planes. A few were put on Mr. ***'s flight and anyone
holding a "free" ticket was being "bumped". Airline officials,
armed with a list of these freebie ticket holders boarded the plane
to remove the free ticket holders. Of course our Mr. *** was not
sitting in his assigned seat as you may remember. So, when the
Ticket Agent approached the seat where Mr. *** was supposed
to be sitting, she asked a startled customer, "Are you ***?".
The man shyly nodded that he was, at which time she demanded:
"Then you have to get off the plane"
Our Mr. *** overhearing what the Ticket Agent had said, tried to
clear up the situation: "You've got the wrong man. I'm ***!" This
caused an angry third passenger to yell " Hell, I'm *** too! They
can't kick us all off" Confusion reined as more & more passengers
began yelling that USAir had no right to remove ***s from the flight.
