U.S. Aryans: “I vas only following orders!”

airline review

What happens when corporate greed becomes more important than customer service? You get a total lack of common sense and employees saying “I vas only following orders.” Holy Nuremberg, Batman! We made reservations online with an airline that almost monopolizes Charlotte’s airways (I will call them U.S.Aryans). The web site screwed up the dates and when …
