X-posting here
You can write into the airline afterward to complain, but don’t get into a flight on the plane

Proofreader is on vacation, so please post any edits and any other tips :)

https://www.dansdeals.com/points-travel/airlines/airline-news/psa-avoid-getting-kicked-off-next-flight/
Love it!

A few points:

"I wrote about how to avoid getting your credit card shutdown". Should be "shut down" (two words)

"so I figured I may as well write about how to avoid getting kicked off your flight as well" - double use of "as well". You may want to change it to "... I may as well also write about..." (and skip the last "as well")

"You can write into the airline afterward to complain, but don’t get into a flight on the plane or else you may find yourself kicked off a flight or blacklisted from future flights." should say "fight"

"However sticking a camera in a flight attendants face" - should have a comma after "however"



Sorry for nitpicking - it's a really great piece - but you asked for edits and this is what I've got.

Not sure the lollipops will help
Trust me, I'm the last guy to make a scene in such a situation. You should hear me threaten my 3-year-old with all sorts of horrible things if he dares to remove his mask when we fly.
I once gave him a lollypop to suck because he wouldn't keep his mask on (midflight), the SWA FA got on the loudspeaker immediately: "Please make sure your mask is covering your mouth and nose unless actively eating...and no, lollypops don't count"! But she said it with a smile.

I can’t imagine how tough this must have been for those in economy, between having to sit up and wear a mask for all of that time. Meanwhile for those in first and business class, maybe it wasn’t quite as bad.

It's been too long without a Sunday roundup. Do I really have to start a Change.org petition to get another one??

Lol that's funny

I would use YY here, that's how he's known to your wider audience.

Capitalize Placebo, or lower case nocebo.

Personally I was a Palm OS guy until switching to Android in 2011, but it’s crazy to think how crackberries have now come and gone. It’s also amazing that no modern phones have figured out how to properly implement a full keyboard.

Is that a typo, thought that was very much intentional?
