wow...I like the onion, makes me laugh, but this article seems to be in really bad taste. Especially saying that "all on board were killed." There are some places you just don't go with comedy.

... You guys do realize that there was no plane crash ... no one died ... it was a humorous story ... no victims ... right? Just wanted to check. I thought it was a funny commentary on the state of airline service, but I apologize if you guys' were offended.

I thought it was very funny. If you can't laugh at the farce this business can be, you're clearly not cut out for it...

Me too. But rest assured if people got pissed off about "Mr. Discount Airline pilot guy". This will bring even more pissing and moaning. Wouldn't be suprised to read how "Delta and American take offense to mock article on the Onion" in the next few days on CNN.com or some other news source.

Just laugh

Yes, I like family guy and I thought "Mr. Discount Airline Pilot Guy" was hilarious. As far as the NIMBY thing goes, you couldn't be further from how I feel. Make fun of this industry as much as you want, I have no problem with that, I will usually be right there yukking it up. What caused the problem for me was the fact that they used a real picture in a fake article. Omit the picture and the sentence "all on board were killed" and I have no problem.

speaking of the onion, does anyone have a copy of "THE FLYING MONGOOSE" it was an airticle in the onion years ago...funny as .....
A spoof article writen by this fictious captain who ended everything with "because im the greatest pilot that ever lived." If anyone has it I'd love a copy of it.
