    More likely the latter but then again by me here in NY it is not unusual for a teacher to pull down 100K after a few years.

    Responding to first class pricing question.

    I was flying Raleigh to Minneapolis a couple months ago and decided to first class. It was 625 vs 565 for coach.

    In most cases it's a larger % premium but not always

    'It must be my race': Democrat congresswoman who 'took a teacher's first class seat on a flight home for Christmas' insists SHE is the victim because the passenger must be RACIST
    • A school teacher from Washington, DC accused United Airlines of evicting her from her first-class seat and giving it to a Democratic congresswoman
    • Jean-Marie Simon, 63, was flying home on December 18, having boarded a flight from George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston bound for the capital
    • When she boarded the final flight of her trip home on December 18, she was told by the gate attendant that her ticket was not in the system
    • Simon was then told that the seat she had purchased, 1A, was taken
    • She was compensated with a $500 voucher and another ticket in Economy Plus
    • Upon boarding the plane, Simon noticed that her seat was taken by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, the congresswoman from Houston
    • United on Monday apologized to Simon and reimbursed her with a $500 travel voucher
    • Jackson Lee issued a statement saying she did nothing wrong and that she's upset to have to address it at all
    • She claims Simon is upset because Jackson Lee is an African American woman

    Of course his Urban PROG mindset.

    Don't cruise ships have jails? Maybe airliners should have emergency detention cells to hold passengers who cross the line. I think it is unacceptable when a captain claims (lies that) he is "forced" to divert or return because of an unruly passenger, adding cost to every other passenger.

    Yea, really. They could just lock 'em in one of the bathrooms for the duration of the trip. Be especially good if they used the one someone with stomach issues had been holed up in for the previous 30 minutes. lol
