Airline Industry: “Problems? What Problems?”

Everything seems to be going along just fine for the airline industry these days. Apparently their daily operations are so smooth and trouble-free that their biggest problem was that famous incident last week: a scantily-clad passenger threatened to derail the wholesome family atmosphere of her flight with her skimpy outfit.

And now here's an article asking whether there should be a dress code for airline passengers. Yes, let’s drop everything and tackle this earthshaking problem RIGHT NOW.

But that just goes to show you how smoothly it’s all going for the airlines. Times must be awfully good if their biggest problem is somebody’s short skirt.

Are you sure there aren't a few other problems that the airlines should be dealing with? Hmmm…I can't seem to think of anything off hand, except, wasn’t there something about — well, I’ll think of it later.

Silly, non-sensical and intellectual sloth-driven puritanism strikes again ...

I don't know whether I should laugh aloud or bow my head in dejected resignation at the sheer insanity of it all.

Obviously they only want nuns and Rabbi's flying on their airlines, and that may be a little risky.

Zing! You nailed it, Tom.

Mentarch: Excellent descriptions. Laughter and dejected resignation are definitely the reaction to this kind of insanity.

Larry: I don't know, Nuns have their faces revealed. Perhaps only Moslem women with their faces veiled. OOPS, that's right, they're Moslems. Forget that.

Miss Kitty: Thanks.

God you're kidding me. I remember when I used to work at the airport and we would all wait for the flights coming from Southern California during the Summer.

Can you say string bikini in heels with a wrap around?

And this was the Reagan 80's

Maybe some old bat complained because her husband wasn't paying attention to her.

If this had happened in the Middle east a Mullah could walk on the plane, take her off and whip her!

Erik: I guess some things have gotten worse since the Reagan '80s. Some of these prudish "Christian" types would probably happier living in the Middle East, being ruled by mullahs.

As long as they keep making us take our shoes off and don't allow more than 3 oz of liquid, we'll all be safe.

PoliShifter: Oh, we need to do a lot more than that. Before boarding a plane, passengers should be required to sign a loyalty oath and pay a huge surcharge to help finance the War on Tur.

"War on Tur!" I almost peed myself at that one.
All this time, I've been spelling it "Terrrrrr." Damn, I feel like I'm listening to Lyndon Johnson when I hear W speak.

Miss Kitty: Glad you liked "Tur." I see that spelling a lot at different blogs. W may talk like Lyndon Johnson but he doesn't have one tenth of the intelligence or compassion that LBJ had.

W. couldn't have licked LBJ's boots.

"Tur?" Ohhhhhhhhhhhh. (All this time I thought it was "Tara," and naught but poor Scarlet in her velvet drapes to defend it...)
