    At my age, when I gotta go, I gotta go. They will probably either arrest me, kick me off or have wet seats, because the old man cannot hold it any longer.


    Maybe Depends for flights is next. Ohhhhh, the age problems.

    Where does anything substantiate that "United Airlines Forces Mom to Urinate in Cup..."? That was her choice, and she was making a point. I wonder how many drinks she had.

    Over my career, I flew over a million miles, and after some point, preparing for flights, nutrition, drink, rest, luggage, etc. becomes second nature. The other thing that becomes second nature is doing what the flight attendants ask without question or hesitation. One could always tell the "infrequent" flyers because they thought their ticket to the plane entitled them to first class, specialized, rules-don't- apply-to-me treatment in so many cases.

    Let's just give this lady a pile of money.

    Nobody forced her to pee in a cup; she chose to go that route. Did she let United know ahead of time that she had a medical issue? Probably not.

    Per their website:

    United is dedicated to providing convenient and comfortable service to all of our customers. The following information is provided to assist customers with a disability in planning a trip with us. Every person with a disability is different, and you are the best judge of the service you require. If we're doing more or less than you need, please communicate your preferred level of assistance to our employees.

    In addition to requesting special assistance when making your reservation, please let our airport employees and inflight crew members know of your special needs during your travel. Friendly reminders to our employees are always appreciated and will help us place a face with a request for assistance.

    United recommends all passengers travel with essential medications in a carry-on bag that can be placed beneath the seat in front of the customer for quick access if needed.

    I would like to congratulate her. I have trouble doing that with both feet squarely planted on the ground.

    I feel like every story that comes out now about an airline is just an attempt at a money grab.

    Or clickbait, which is essentially the same thing.

    I am a very experienced flyer. Once when flying, I had to go (no alcohol involved). We were approaching landing and were told to stay in our seats. I thought I could wait, but we had to circle for awhile, when we finally started to descend, I knew I wasn't going to make it. My panicked look and repeated I'm sorries as I ran down the aisle, probably kept me from getting in trouble. I was seated in the restroom upon landing. I was not going to go in my seat. The flight attendants were not happy, but did not make an issue of it.

    Sometimes there are these emergencies, especially in those of us who have had children. I knew I was risking my saftey, and that was on me.

    Guess it is better to ask for forgiveness than permission sometimes.

    I've got another flight booked on United in a few weeks. Can't wait to see how friendly they are now.

    Truth should shape people's politics, rather than politics shaping what people think is true.

    I agree. Not everyone understands and more power to them. When it hits you, you can't hold it for ten minutes. At some point it becomes "now" and it's going to happen, one way or the other.
