Christopher Elliott talks TSA, “Stupid” Airline Travelers and a Killer Virus

This week’s edition of The Travel Guys features nationally syndicated consumer columnist Christopher Elliott (his column appear in the Sunday Travel section of The Bee) discussing a variety of items of interest to travelers, including where to draw the line when the TSA starts messing with your body and your “stuff.”

In our listener TalkBack section, we’ll ask you if you think airline passengers are “stupid” for agreeing to pay ridiculous fees, as one European airline executive said this week. Call us and tell us what you think and you might win a $50 ARCO gas card, courtesy of Sports Leisure Vacations.

In the travel news, an update on the killer virus in Yosemite; and we tell you if United Airlines is really number one is award seat availability (as their recent advertisments claim).

    I caught a portion of yesterday’s radio show and heard the comments made on Glenn Beck’s recent experience when on board American Airlines. The flight attendant’s poor service to Glenn Beck should not have taken place. A flight attendant can either provide the best of service at all times to all passengers or be fired. As an airline passenger I will not be flying American Airlines. Glenn Beck thanked this flight attendant for providing the better service to his family members and received the reply “that’s okay and you deserved it” next to the pilot and others on board. Another passenger let Beck know they could not believe what they heard.

    The excuse you made for this bad service was wrong. Glenn Beck has not berated gays. Obviously you know little about Glenn Beck and should not be talking about him.

    Publicity like this will not help American Airlines.

    Thank you,
