Earth Needs a Passenger Bill of Rights

Filed under: Knee-Slappingly Funny — dangrdave @ 3:25 pm

American Airlines has, so far, grounded 3,300 flights.  Supposedly, the groundings have to do with electrical checks and FAA compliance issues; however, I believe that my post about ‘Global Year Shortening’ and the number of high-elevation east-bound flights has caused American Airlines to ground its fleet of MD80s in order to research this phenomenon.

I’m glad the ‘big boys’ of the airline industry are ‘getting on board’ with this grass roots campaign.  I can almost smell my Nobel Peace Prize…either that or the garbage needs to be taken out.  Either way, I want to keep up the momentum on this movement.

And, please, if you have any ideas about how we can get the word out on ‘Global Year Shortening,’ let me know.  I’ve already devoted about thirty seconds to come up with a catch phrase:

Global Year Shortening: Isn’t It Time for Earth to Have a Passenger Bill of Rights?



  1. I’d be happier if science finds a way to warp space so I can always get a window seat.

  2. Ghosty, if you’re going to starve to death on the runway, then, truly, there is no better seat than a window seat.

  3. On the other hand, if you’re in an aisle seat you can pretend that they’re actually working towards getting your flight going and there is no reality visible to shatter your hope.
