Pretty sure it's only an idb if done at the gate before boarding the airplane...It's something else after boarded.
Yes - and that's where our disconnect may be. I'm operating under the assumption that the company can still legally issue an "IDB" even after the passengers have physically boarded, or that they can in this scenario. If that is indeed unlawful then I would agree that the premise of my legal argument is incorrect.
@jtrain609 @JOEFRIDAY2 - in this scenario can the airline legally issue an IDB after the passengers have boarded?
If they volunteer to get off when offered a travel voucher, no laws are broken. If you think that the little PR stunt Delta is pulling by offering up to $10k is real money, you're a fool.
Delta is wise enough to know that they will never make it to 10 grand. Someone will break around 3 grand.
I travel twice a month on the airlines. Once to work and once from work. I'll gladly take 2 to 3 grand to get off of a flight on go home day!
I'd practically elbow an old lady trying to be the first up front to volunteer at the 5 grand mark.
Good move Delta! "Smoove move!"
And this is why giving away "Delta Dollars" works so well.
I was listening at a gate during their last irop and they were offering $1200 per person on an American Express gift card, plus a hotel and meal vouchers.
I don't even think it will get to 3 grand. It will be like the blackjack tables in Vegas.
Someone will take the offer at $1500 and the rest of the passengers will complain how the $1500 guy messed it up for the rest of the plane because Delta would have gone higher.
Yup, and that's not the norm. I've been over that earlier in the thread.
LAX is one of those stations that does that.
Delta definitely wins this round.
Sheesh, Flight Vouchers are going to turn into a revival of, "Let's Make A Deal!" except you don't have to dress up in a costume, because most pax attire seems to follow a certain "style" if you want to call it that. Have them choose a box for their reward. Will it be a $1,000 flight voucher with a sweet Airport hotel, an emotional support guinea pig, or a seat on the flight next to the guy that may have showered within the last month? Stay tuned!
At least the pax won't be subjected to the rants of someone who works in a hotel. That's sure to be a helluva incentive right there. After five minutes they'd be scrambling to be let off the damn plane.
I think it's entirely possible that the passengers have actually become the bullies and the airlines are just attempting to evolve and unfortunately that requires them to sometimes become aholes.
I have noticed that since the United incident, passengers have become more "emboldened" to "push back" at our FAs requests...
Yup. They're going to reward bad behavior with millions because they didn't step in front of the story and let social media control the narrative.
I wonder how airlines could realistically curb this in a way that wouldn't create more nightmares for PR. You can't record all the pax, and posting on passenger shaming might not be a good thing...
Stop treating pax like cattle would be a good start.
