Some might remember the well-known Swedish model Marcena Kamizela who stands for everything young Swedens look up to. She was insulted and treated in a way which you will only find in countries like Syria today by British Airways and a Canadian court far out in the Canadian wilderness some years ago. It was a blow against everything Sweden stands for and jeopardized the diplomatic connections between Canada and Sweden just as Martinair owners sold the company out of shame when the airline company asked the police in Florida to raise charges against the Danish national icon May Andersen.
Recently there was a newspaper article about a poor passenger on an EastJet airline who was starved for so long that he saw no other option but to hit a crew member. Placing passengers in such impossible near-death situations should be against the law but unfortunately another aspect of the 9-11 attack has been the airline companies have been allowed to treat their passengers in an inhumane and terrible way.
Among the people who work in the airline industry there is a realization that the airline companies have gone too far. Right now honest decent workers in the airline industry are working to stop Ryanair to establish themselves in Copenhagen bringing even the lowest standard to Denmark. Former employees have told the media how they have to ask family and friends to send them money so they can afford going to work every day. It seems unsafe when the workers on a plane come from another firm only established to write off responsibility on if something goes wrong.
People have to say stop to the present focus on earning money in the airline industry and go back to the days where airline companies were owned by the state servicing the people instead of starving both crew and passengers to a point where violence become unavoidable. The best we all can do is to stop using airline companies and remain at home until they accept that the passengers are their customers.
