Girl Trolls Southwest Airlines About 'Rude Service' and They Snap Back With Best Response Ever

Amidst the United Airlines controversy madness at least we have our ever devious Twitter Trolls to provide us comedic relief. This is definitely the first time I came across an airlines affiliated headline the last couple days not entirely related to bashing United, and phew, is it refreshing or what.

Parody Twitter Account for CEO of United Airlines Provides Comedic Relief Amidst PR Nightmare

In case you spent the last couple days hanging out underneath a rock, devoid of all media outlets, then you had to have seen the crazy video of the passenger being forcibly removed from a United Airlines flight after refusing to give up his seat to one of their employees. For starters, the first wave of trolling/memes (see collection here) in response to the incident were gold; and low and behold....people are back at it again with an awesome parody Twitter account to further crucify the company for the way they handled everything.

Delta Fires Off Shots at United Airlines After They Wouldn't Let Girls Wearing Leggings Board Flight

Over the weekend an amusing and entirely ridiculous controversy rained down sweet entertainment for us all, courtesy of United Airlines' dress policy. Specifically, United wouldn't let a couple girls board their flight because they were wearing leggings, which apparently didn't comply with their outlandish dress code policy. At the end of the day I think we can all agree, that 'Airline Twitter' remains the best Twitter!

If you're having trouble, the flight attendant's announcement was "The captain cannot take off when we have ice on the wings, and we don't want to die."



Passenger Ella Ryan, posted to Instagram her account of the chaotic travel delays, "This is what happens when you've been delayed almost 8 hours, everyone's at a lost including staff 'we don't want to die' absolute mayhem. All hell was breaking loose when a member of staff made this outrageous announcement."



She also revealed passengers were "continuously receiving inconsistent reasons for the delay" and were only given a £3.50 ($7.20) voucher. You'd think after 8 hours they'd get a full refund.



The discount airline Ryanair responded with only a statement of, "We will be speaking to the crew member involved and apologize for the regrettable comment she made in the heat of the moment".

According to a legal complaint filed by Edward Gamson, an American dentist, he and his partner booked a trip to the Spanish city of Granada through British Airways. They were flying out of London, which is a two-hour journey from Granada. Unfortunately, that two-hour flight was actually a nine-hour flight to the Caribbean, because that plane was going to Grenada, 4,000 miles away from their original destination. One letter makes a big difference.

It's a mistake unlikely to happen on any online-booking service, but Gamson had called to make the reservation. "Grenada" and "Granada" is easy to mix up, although he claimed to have told the British Airways booking agent he was going to Spain.

British Airways initially offered him and his travel companion $376 each, plus 50,000 miles, but Gamson told NBC News that the cost of the missed trip, including hotels, trains and tours, cost more than $34,000.

Gamson is now suing the airline. A spokesperson for British Airways said the airline was unable to comment on active litigation.
