There is outrage from the public after the U.S. Men’s Curling team Twitter account asked Delta Airlines for an upgrade to business class on their return flight to the U.S. after the Olympics, but Delta said no because there were not any seats available. (To clarify the outrage was directed towards Delta and not the Olympians)
I personally think that it’s snobby to complain over this, if there are no seats available, then there are no seats available, especially since its during the first day or two after the Olympics ended, so the seats would obviously be filled. Furthermore, the Olympic athletes are not entitled to anything, and if they were upgraded, there would need to be 5-10 seats in business class available because the curling team consists of 5 players + staff.
What are your thoughts?
