least favorite reporter, Chris Elliott, is at it again. This time it’s about mistake fares. If you want some quality entertainment, check out the article here. The highlight has to be this gem:
They have a right to their opinion, but I won’t advocate for them. People who try to force travel companies to accept unreasonable or erroneous prices are stealing — no two ways about it.
Now look, I see where people are coming from when they say it might be unethical or wrong to push a travel company to accept a mistake fare in certain cases. But stealing and “no two ways about it?!?”
Chris, as one FlyerTalker said, you really are one of the luckiest people in the world. How you have a job as a “travel expert” yet continue to spew this garbage is beyond me. And of course this is one of his better articles, certainly more accurate than the time he claimed elite status was meaningless or the time he said elite fliers ruin the travel experience.
Wait a second, why am I even writing about this? Shouldn’t I just ignore him? This is like giving Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt publicity. I’m sure Chris will make my day by posting a comment here shortly saying that he’s happy to provide us with some good laughs….
