DailyDirt: On The Way, The Paper Bag Was On My Knee...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There doesn't seem to be a "Black Friday" for getting good deals on booking flights. Maybe there is a single day of the year to buy really discounted plane tickets -- if you know what day that is, please let everyone know in the comments. But technically, it probably takes more than a single day of ticket sales for the airline industry to get into the black for the year. In any case, here are some more stories about airlines and how they treat their customers. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

    The pudding guy hopefully used up his miles...

    Just saw that American Airlines filed for bankruptcy...

    So I assume those pudding miles will be gone pretty soon.
