Andy Predicted in Chicago Ohare that AreoMexico Set Up to Bump Him
Airlines want to fill all seat in the plane to make the most amount of money. However, there are no-shows, people who do not show and the seat sits empty. The airline wishes to get two fare for one seat, so they over-book the flights, they never had enough seats for all the people that paid. Now, in the USA, they may give a bonus ticket to the person they bumped out of their seat. Yet, if there is small print, some reason they can blame the person, then they do not have to pay. Now, I do not believe that AreoMexico ever gives anything, they just put the person on the next flight. If you look at my ticket, given to me in Chicago Ohare, it more or less says STD Standby, as if I paid it take up an extra seat if available. but i paid for a seat, I did not pay for STD Standby, so they were just screwing me, and acting as if the whole thing was a big mistake, and I should forgive them, but I do not, I think this is intentional theft, and they indeed just did not give me a seat so they could bump me to the next flight 10 hours later. It is all just greed, and the whole concept of over-booking a flight should be illegal, if that was possible with Mexico. There is a reason I do not go to Mexico anymore, and never want to, it is a country where everything is a problem ,they are the Nigeria of Central America. There are cultures on the planet that are more violent, more theft more anything, not all people or cultures or governments are the same, when they say, Mexico is corrupt, it is from top to bottom, not just the politicians, it is all the people of a country that is corrupt, it is a total picture. But of course there are many exceptions, but the prevailing culture is the culture, do not give a benefit of a doubt, when someone says a country is corrupt, assume the people are corrupt, and hope the person you are talking with is nice.
Shame on them, I know this trick, one time they did something similar to me in Venezuela. I had a Lufthansa ticket from Venezuela to Germany, Germany to Japan, Japan to Korea (and round trip), I showed up in Venezuela almost 3 hours before the flight (I know they say 2 hours for international flights), when I arrived to the counter it was me an another traveler, it turned out that I "should have been 2 hours before they start the check in process" and not 2 hours before the flight, everyone else who did this route regularly knew this trick and they had passed TSA at this point in time so only this other traveler and I got screwed, we didn't get bumped out, we LOST OUR THOUSAND $ TICKETS, ALL THE TICKET TO KOREA AND THE ROUND TRIP AS WELL (AND ALMOST A WEDDING IN KOREA WHERE I WAS BEST MAN) I ended up having to stay another week in Venezuela til I catched another NO SO EXPENSIVE flight that I barely could put on my credit card, thru those days I went to Customer Service at the airport, the airline and everything, NOTHING HELPED, THEY TRICKED ME INTO LOSING MY TICKET AND WISHING I WAS BUYING A NEW TICKET ON THE SPOT, I ended up buying a 1 way with Delta to Korea a week later (three years later I am still paying those charges on my credit cards, thieves..)
