There’s only one response to the huge PR problem US Airways has from this intolerant airline attendant. Fire her.
Not policy to hang the soldier’s uniform? Adapt the policy. Not enough closet room? Find room. Other passengers maintain the flight attendant was rude, unhelpful and condescending. An apology is not enough. In this job market, the airline can do better.
The flight was from Oregon to Charlotte, NC. I’m guessing she’s spending more time in Portland than Charlotte.

Medea Benjamin? She’s the co-founder of Code Pink, one of the most extreme groups in the US. Benjamin is independently wealthy, a big donor to lefty causes and to Democrats. She’s an Obama bud, any criticism from her toward Obama is either from the far-left view or it’s stage theater to pretend there’s a public call for lefty policies. Democrats treat her with respect because of her money and her PR-savvy ability to garner media attention. She’s profoundly anti-military – once Code Pink members stood outside a military base on Halloween during the Iraq War and handed out anti-war materials to the children of the military – and profoundly anti-Israel. You may remember her as the nut who stood up during a Congressional hearing and put red-painted hands in Condoleezza Rice’s face. Yeh, she’s that classy. Last summer she spoke to the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church USA and they voted for a censure of Israel that was BDS in everything but name. Even the New York Times and Hamas called it BDS; you’d think they would know since they were happy about it. Here’s some of Medea’s other activities, she’s quite a gal. Co-founder Jodie Evans is a wealthy California who’s just as radical and just as respected by Obama and the Democratic Party.
Here she is on the English version of Iranian TV. Iran loves her, just like they love Obama.
It’s been a busy week for the Islamist terrorist support group Code Pink. Last weekend the group was honored by CAIR (an unindicted co-conspirator for supporting Islamist terrorist groups), a few days later Code Pink popped up in Iran being feted (yet again) by the Islamist state sponsor of terrorism, Iran.
Susan “Medea” Benjamin, a co-founder of Code Pink, was in Iran this week participating in an Iranian government conference whose “goal is to unveil the secrets behind the dominance of the Zionist lobby over US and EU politics.” The Iranian government invited a rogue’s gallery of anti-American, anti-Israel agitators and conspiracy theorists to attend the 2nd New Horizon Conference being held in Tehran including Benjamin whose group has direct ties to President Barack Obama and top Democratic Party leaders.
Code Pink has raised money for al Qaeda family members in Yemen; fundraised to overthrow the Egyptian government while working with the Muslim Brotherhood; and delivered $600,000 in cash and humanitarian aid to “the other side” in Fallujah, Iraq in late 2004.
The interview focused on America’s alleged sins in the world fighting the war on terror, with a special focus on Israel and that nation’s alleged control of U.S. foreign policy. The subject of Iran was not brought up at all in the nearly half-hour sit-down interview with Benjamin.
Benjamin dismissed the outrage about Americans being beheaded by ISIS as the product of media “hype”, saying that Americans are being “manipulated” in to supporting war on ISIS. Benjamin also criticized Americans for allegedly valuing American lives more than those of Muslims. Benjamin said the United States has been “killing people in the Muslim world with such ease.” Benjamin went on to criticize the American people for being “out for blood, out for revenge” over the beheading of Westerners by ISIS.
Benjamin was a main organizer and financier of the Flotillas that attempted to push through Israeli harbor and take “supplies” to Gaza. She called them peace flotillas but as soon as they came into contact with the Israelis, all kinds of hidden weapons appeared in the hands of the flotilla peace-niks, injuring several Israel military members. Like I said, she’s quite a gal.
