Cattle class: United appoints someone with experience in moving cattle
I found this letter in last weeks’ Economist funny.
I see that United Airlines, facing huge competition, has appointed a railroad executive as its new boss (“The chairman’s flight”, September 12th). I am sure his experience with cattle cars will serve him well when squeezing passengers into planes.
It would be unfair to single out United, however. I think none of the US carriers (with maybe the exception of Virgin) know the meaning of service. Sad.
