    A good buddy of mine at NZ who used to work for FL has told me many, many stories in his 5 months with them. From rival gang members giving ghetto beat downs at the gate to pax finding poop in the barf bags, strange things happen at FL.

    According to my friend, about twice a month an FL flight would have to return to SFO because a passanger would have such a bad stench the other pax couldn't take it. I guess FL is what happens when you put an LCC in Asslanta.
    This reminds me, when I got onto a DL 757 flight (ATL-PHX) over the summer, I found my seat belt had hardened chewing gum inside it. Someone had apperantly taken the chewing gum out of thier mouth, and suck it inside the seatbelt latch then fastened it and once they got off the plane it hardened. I reported to the FA and waited in back and they got someone to replace the seat belt and everything was fine. That's about the worse that's ever happened to me, makes you wonder what some people are thinking

    I know nothing really to do with FL, but still the same type of thing. Unfortunately there isn't much that can be done to stop nasty people that do that kind of stuff from flying

    No need to await an explanation from the Company. If the Flt attendants didn't inform MTC or Ops Control that they had a soiled seat then it would remain in the inventory and available for a pax.

    The cookie pushers should have done their job properly and then they would not be in the paper.

    So your saying that the Castellano lady was the one that went in the seat and then went off telling the press a whole other story? Maybe YX did have someone take a leak on one of their flights before, but I guess they must've handled it better since it didn't end up in the news.

    AA1818 is correct - we will never get to hear FL's side of the story - because of privacy issues...I have researched alot of reporters bitches about Delta and how horribly they were treated and come to find out - surprise-surprise - they were well taken care of but Delta can never go public with our side of the story...

    I really feel sorry for this woman, that would have been a horrible issue to deal with...who knows, maybe the seat was blocked and she wasnt assigned to sit there but sat there anyway -- we will never know...

    Ok FL would not knowingly put anyone in a soiled seat....PERIOD!

    Under normal circumstances the crew would contact station OPS and have them either dispatch a new seat cover or utilize a "save our seat" kit which all FL flights have onboard. They would also alert the gate supv to the situation and they would have issued a "courtesy compensation" if you will since it was an "FL aircraft and an FL problem" kinda thing. That's how it should have happened.... along with full refund and a free round trip.

    No airline would bring a pax bags to them in the gate area..... even as a courtesy... to even suggest such a thing is absurd it's also a major breach of security.

    Gotta love the YX comments.... how's that merger w/ TPG-NWA going?

    Hmmm...maybe somehow cleaned the seat up a little bit? Warn her about it beforehand? Get her luggage?
    As was said before, and I quote:

    "Castellano said a flight attendant told her someone had gone to the bathroom in the seat during the previous flight."

    Until now, it has not been verifiyed that this took place. Come on, don't be idiotic - why would an airline intentionally put themselves in that sittutation? I am sure that the great airline that is YX has never once had a passenger have an accident in their seat. And I am sure that every flight of YX's is perfectly spotless - every time - without complaint. And now to your suggestions -

    1). See above.

    2). See above. Why would they know and not tell her?

    3). Let me know when YX becomes immune from federal regualtions and TSA rules, b/c AirTran has to play by said rules.

    I just find it too funny that the poster of this thread did not include this little excerpt :

    An Air Tran representative said it is against federal regulations for airline personnel to retrieve passenger luggage. They said Air Tran is investigating the incident and will refund Castellano the purchase price of her ticket and refund the cost of the damaged clothing.
    I would have thought that this little piece of information would have been pertienent, but I can see this information should be discarded. Biased? Surely not.

    [QUOTE=AA 1818]Oh sure, I am sure a pee-stained seat would have been a real disservice to the mighty YX! How would they have handled it differently?

    Remember, we have not had a statement from the airline. I am sure that the conversation probably went something along the lines that after the fact the crew said "well, it probably was a passenger on the last flight that did it". I mean come on, there is very little possibliity of anyone else doing it. COME ON!!! WHY WOULD FL PUT HER IN THE DAMN SEAT IF IT WAS DIRTY TO BEGIN WITH? I know that we want publicity, but we are not this starved for it. I love how the article went out of their way to paint us as a horrible carrier, when all of their evidence is hear-say. Has the airline released a statement? Nop, but we are given the one-sided statement. The funny thing is that no matter what the airline does, people will always remember the negative publicity. Sucks cuz the airline will not ever really have a say in this whole matter.
