Seat 29E Complaint
The following is an email I received recently (thanks G.A. and M.B.). It is a complaint letter written by a passenger on Continental Airlines. Below the links to the original scan, I typed the letter out. But you gotta read the passengers writing yourself, plus there's 2 illustrations not in the transcript. Click on "Page 1", it should popup the letter. When you finish close the letter and click on the next page. There's a couple of words I wouldnt choose to put in my blog, but I made an exception b/c this is very hilarious.
Here is the letter in text form ...
12-21-04 Flt#888/500 -> Houston Seat #29E (RECEIVED APR 13 2005 Customer Care) Dear Continental Airlines, I am disgusted as I write this note to you about the miserable experience I am having sitting in seat _29E_ on one of your aircrafts. As you may know, this seat is situated directly across from the lavatory, so close that I can reach out my left arm and touch the door. All my senses are being tortured simultaneously. Its difficult to say what the worst part about sitting in 29E really is? Is it the stentch of the sanitation fluid that's blown all over my body every 60 seconds when the door opens? Is it the woosh of the constant flushing? Or is it the passengers asses that seem to fit into my personal spase like a p0rn0graphic jig-saw puzzel? I constucted a stink- shield by shoving one end of a blanket into the overhead compartment - while effective in blocking at least some of the smell, and offering a small bit of privacy, the ass-on- my-body factor has increased, as without my evil glare, passengers feel free to lean up against what they think is some kind of blanketed wall. The next ass that touches my shoulder will be the last! I am picturing a board room full of executives giving props to the young promising engineer that figured out how to squeeze an additional row of seats onto this plane by putting them next to the LAV. (illustration here) I would like to flush his head in the toilet that I am close enough to touch from my seat. ^ ,and taste, Putting a seat here was a very bad idea. I just heard a man GROAN in there! This sucks! (illustration here) Depiction of mans butt in my face. Worse yet, is I've paid over $400.00 for the honor of sitting in this seat! Does your company give refunds? I'd like to go back where I came from and start over. Seat 29E could only be worse if it was located inside the bathroom. I wonder if my clothing will retain the sanitizing odor .... hat about my hair! I feel like I'm bathing in a toilet bowl of blue liquid, and there is no man in a little boat to save me. I am filled with a deep hatred for you plane designer. And a general dis-ease that may last for hours. We are finally decending, and soon I will be able to tear down the stink- shield, but the scars will remain. I suggest that you initiate immediate removal of this seat from all of your crafts. Just remove it, and leave the smouldering brown hole empty, a place for sturdy/non- absorbing luggage maybe, but not human cargo.
