Wow, I just got denied a Skykit for the first time ever.
Oh joy, some days in the “friendly skies” are a real hoot, like this morning’s TPA to IAD flight. I get onboard and the audio works fine. Channel 9 is even on, so I figured it would be a good flight. Well, we take off and voila, the audio doesn’t work, except for channel one. The only thing on channel one is the audio for the video programming, which I’ve already seen three times this month.
I bring this to the attention of one of the flight attendants, who brings it to the attention of the purser. The flight attendant tells me I should be happy that the video is working. Sheesh. I ask this flight attendant if I could get a Skykit form (which, for those you that don’t know, are given out when there are onboard issues), and she comments “I don’t think we give them out for audio.”
A few minutes later the purser comes to my seat and says “Are you the one that wanted the voucher?” I said “Well, my audio isn’t working and I’ve seen this exact video three times this month. I was looking forward to listening to Channel 9 and music.” She says “No, your audio is working. It’s just your music that doesn’t work.” Totally puzzled I gave her a “WTF?” look, and again explained to her that I had already seen that exact video a few times this month, and that it’s the other channels I’m interested in. She just tells me “Too bad, we only give those out when the video and audio are broken, but your audio and video work fine.” She then walks away, before I can even respond.
