Last month, theCultFigure and I went back east for a vacation. He returned to Seattle before I did, and unfortunately his plane was grounded on the runway for five horrible hours due to thunderstorms and lightning. The other day, we received an email apologizing for

“the inconvenience and discomfort caused by the long onboard delay and late arrival at your destination”

The email included a voucher towards future tickets on US Airways. The voucher amounts seem chintzy to me, but then USAir isn’t exactly awash in profits these days.

* $100 OFF A ROUNDTRIP TICKET OF $500 OR MORE
* $75 OFF A ROUNDTRIP TICKET OF $400 – $499 
* $50 OFF A ROUNDTRIP TICKET OF $250 – $399 
* $25 OFF A ROUNDTRIP TICKET OF $150 – $249 

Still, something is generally better than nothing. And curse their black hearts, but USAir is pretty much our only nonstop option for flying to Philly. So, I know we’ll use this voucher.
