Getting made fun of in public? Just about everyone will tell you that the best approach to the situation is NOT to go after those mocking you, especially not when the parody is actually funny. Nonetheless, American Airlines has decided to go after one of their own, bringing a 24-year veteran flight attendant in for investigation thanks to said flight attendant, among other things, sharing some pretty funny parody videos.
Never mind that Gailen has been writing about travel experiences for years, including some pretty snarky bits in the past (but all in a good way, IMO). Nope. Now is the time to go after the folks who are doing their job and doing it well. After all, firing someone with 20+ years seniority is way more effective at cutting budgets than cutting someone more junior. And when you’re facing a 20% budget cut, well, the bigger numbers start to look attractive.
This whole thing stinks. Not classy at all, AA. Not at all.
