LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A Glenn Beck boycott against American Airlines has prompted an apology from the carrier. Glenn Beck says his boycott extends to his entire family, vowing that no Beck family member will ever fly the carrier after what he calls inappropriate treatment during air travel. But the carrier has since apologized and offered to discuss the matter with Beck.
Beck tells news that his boycott will extend lifetime and too all family members. “My family will never choose American Airlines again … if this is the kind of people that American Airlines likes to hire.”
But the carrier tells news that it is sorry that Beck didn’t enjoy his recent flight. Moreover, American has asked Beck to talk about the matter with them so that they can address the situation further. “We are sorry for the experience Mr. Beck had on a recent flight. The comfort and satisfaction of our customers are very important priorities to us and we take these matters seriously. We have reached out to Mr. Beck’s office and are actively looking into the situation.”
Beck said his whole life he has been frequented by rude service. But Beck tells news that he didn’t allegedly suffer rude service, rather “subhuman” service. “I had service unlike I have never had ever before in my life, and I have had rude service before. I lived in New York City. I have never had service that was specifically designed to make me feel subhuman.”
He said that his flight attendant barked the word “breakfast” at him. “My flight attendant nearly merely barked the word ‘breakfast’ when he came to me. When others were politely asked if they cared for anything to eat and given the choices, I was just barked at”.
He also tell news that he was given a smashed down soda. “When [the attendant] delivered a soda, he slammed it down so hard, I hesitated to even open the can for fear that it would spray all over other passengers in the cabin. Never once did he look me in the eye. Never once did he offer a kind or even neutral word to me.”
Beck tells news that he hopes he is the last to experience what he allegedly suffered. “I hope I am the last person who has to experience this type of treatment on American Air.”
