This is Absurd!
Feb 09, 2012
By

I will be going to the Embedded World later this month (If you are there stop by and introduce yourself and I give you a free PSoC kit  mention this blog!)  Anyway I went to book travel I got a round trip ticket for $875.

   $225 for Delta

   $650 for various governments.

 So multiple airlines gets me a low price while a single government service does not.

So whatever the airlines do to get people back spending money, you have the government holding them back.  What is sad, while all the Delta people I meet, in hopes of retaining my business, will smile and try to make my trip as pleasant as possible.  From the government people I will be lucky to get a please , thank you , kiss my butt .  I think from now on I am going to remind the TSA to be polite.  Maybe ask them for complementary bottle of water.  Maybe there should be parallel entrances and they get paid per person.  Or maybe funding should be dependant of Net Promoter Scores.
