Amazing! Have you read the notes from the passenger war that erupted on a US Airways flight that ended with a slap on Thanksgiving? From ABC News:
Gale, who is a producer for the ABC network shows “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” initially started tweeting about a female passenger identified as “Diane.” Before the flight even boarded, Gale started to tweet that she was complaining about the delay. Initially Gale seemed content to write about the woman, who was complaining about possibly missing her connection, on his Twitter feed. But then Gale heard the woman snap at a flight attendant. After the flight took off, Gale decided to deliver a message by having the flight attendant bring the woman a drink with a chastising note. According to Gale, the woman did not appear to appreciate the note which read in part, “It has come to my attention that today is your Thanksgiving!! It must be hard to not be with your family! Please accept this glass of wine. It is a gift from me to you. Hopefully if you drink it, you won’t be able to use your mouth to talk. Love Elan”. After overhearing the woman angrily complain to the flight attendant, Gale left two bottles of vodka on her tray himself. She responded with a note of her own. Gale wrote that the woman was so infuriated by his final note, she hit him. US Airways said it was investigating the possible incident and talking to crew members.
Check out the full twitter account of the events below…and for the record Diane missed her connection!
“I know I can come across as abrasive. I know I can seem harsh. But what I’ve never done is be unkind to a person in a service position.” “I don’t care what’s going on with you: Don’t be rude to people who are doing their job.”
