While getting ready to deplane a USAirways A320 at Phoenix yesterday, the following announcement was made: “Would passengers seated next to windows kindly lower their shades so we can keep the plane cool and save on our energy costs.”
This was at 8:30AM.
So the effect was like standing up in a cave, knowing the sun was shining outside.
Pretty tacky, USAirways. Why not just glue-gun ’em shut?
