While the cleaning crew obviously fucked up.... but Delta is at fault since they were supposed to check and re check the plane prior letting the passengers in.

If they missed a whole bunch of shit, then whoever was responsible checking that section should be fired for this.
What If it was not shit,,, but some "other stuff" and no one noticed?

United Airlines fires 35 employees for abusing, selling travel perks


https://www.usatoday.com/story/trave...es/3102781002/

More than 35 United Airlines employees were fired after the company discovered they were abusing their employee travel perks by selling travel passes, which are intended for employees and their friends and family.

"United employees at the gate noticed something fishy about a particular group of nine non-revenue pass riders," the company said in an article published on United's internal site and obtained by USA TODAY. "The three families, who were traveling internationally, stated that they had 'paid for' first class tickets – but they were on non-revenue reservations and were unable to provide the names of the employees who had provided the tickets."

Following an investigation, the airline "uncovered a brokering scheme where employees were soliciting pass travel privileges from their colleagues to put up for sale."

United discovered some employees gave fake documentation to in order to name travelers as their stepparents or domestic partners.

"Some of the employees who gave up their passes received payment, while others were deceived into giving away their pass travel privileges based on the pretext that the passes were for a good friend or a relative (although even that would be against the rules)," the airline stated in the article.

The employees involved were fired, United explained, noting "some claimed that they believed that what they were doing was OK, since they had pass travel privileges that weren’t being used."


Already so fortunate to work at a major legacy air carrier with nice travel perks...want to make a few bucks and abuse their travel passes....and then lose their job. Not the sharpest knife in the kitchen....

But I am curious as to how much those people paid for their 1st class non-revenue tickets...heck I'd pay like $2,000-$3,000 'under the table' for a first class trans-oceanic flight....

Yea that is one of the major points that they stressed to us during our orientation.

And I wouldn't do it any way as anyone traveling on my pass, if they do something stupid. it is on me and my job.

I don't have very many people that I would give them to. Maybe just my sister and brother-inlaw.

Southwest passenger 'bombarded by inappropriate photos' from stranger on her flight

June 17, 2019

Kat Pitman was settling into her aisle seat on a Southwest Airlines flight from Louisville to Chicago Friday morning, texting her husband, when her iPhone buzzed.

She looked down to see an AirDrop request. Someone whose name she didn't recognize was sending her a pornographic image.

"It was just very explicit. It just shocked me,'' the 40-year-old frequent flyer said in an interview with USA TODAY.

Pitman immediately turned off AirDrop, an Apple feature that allows people to wirelessly send photos, videos and documents to nearby phones and computers using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, but quickly turned it back on to take a screenshot of the sender's name. She instantly received two more AirDrop requests, with a video and another graphic photo.

The sender's name? A NSFW take on Bilbo Baggins from "The Hobbit.''

From the article:

She showed the flight attendants the sender's inappropriate screen name and was amazed when one of the flight attendants picked up the intercom and told "Mr. Baggins'' to immediately stop AirDropping.

Woman falls asleep on flight and wakes up in pitch dark on locked and empty plane

Saturday 22 June 2019

A woman has claimed she was left alone in a dark and locked plane after falling asleep on a flight.

Tiffani Adams took a 90-minute Air Canada flight from Quebec to Toronto on 9 June.

Ms Adams fell asleep during the journey but woke up to find the aircraft empty, cleared and parked in Toronto.

She had somehow been left inside the dark plane, which appeared to have been locked for the night.

“I fell asleep probably less than halfway through my short 1.5 hour flight,” she said, in a message posted on Air Canada’s Facebook page.

“I wake up around midnight (few hours after flight landed) freezing cold still strapped in my seat in complete darkness (I’m talking pitch black).”

Ms Adams described her ordeal as “terrifying” and said she thought she was having a bad dream.

The stranded passenger called a friend but her phone died around a minute into the call.

Ms Adams then attempted to charge the phone but found that the plane’s power had been switched off.

“I can’t charge my phone to call for help I’m full on panicking [because] I want off this nightmare asap,” she said.

“As someone with an anxiety disorder as is I can tell you how terrifying this was,” she wrote

“I think I’m having a bad dream bc like seriously how is this happening!!?”

Ms Adams said she found a torch in the plane’s cockpit and eventually made her way to the aircraft’s main door.

She eventually opened the door, only to find herself around 50 ft above ground and unable to negotiate the drop beneath her.

The passenger said she sat with her legs dangling out of the aircraft while sending out distress signals with her torch.

Ms Adams said she was unable to tell how much time had passed before she saw a man driving a luggage cart, who passed the plane.

She said she flagged the startled airport employee down, saying he was “in shock” to see her.

“He [asked] how the heck they left me on the plane,” Ms Adams said, describing her rescue.

“I’m wondering the same.”

The man then accompanied Ms Adams to the airport building, where she was met by Air Canada representatives.

Ms Adams said being forgotten on the plane had left her with recurring “night terrors”.

She said she struggled to sleep and would wake “anxious and afraid [she was] locked up someplace dark”.

An airline spokesperson confirmed the account and told The Independent that Air Canada was reviewing the incident and remained in contact with the passenger.

A torch is a flashlight in case you were confused.
