“They can really be summed up in one or two sentences,” Paul Hudson, president of the non-profit advocacy group Flyer's Rights and member of the FAA's Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee, said. “[The airlines] can do whatever they want whenever they want. They’ll try to do what their ticket says, but don’t hold them to anything.”The state of affairs won’t come as any surprise to a passenger who’s found themselves caught up in the fine print in a dispute with an airline.
As airline profits soared in recent years, U.S. carriers have invested billions of dollars into improving the passenger experience, especially for first-class and business-class travelers whose spending makes up an outsize portion of carriers’ revenues. For those sitting at the front of the plane, lie-flat seats are now the norm, in-flight meals have been given a gourmet touch, and airport lounges around the country have seen upgrades.
Dallas —Ahora que inicia la temporada de viajes de fin de año, quienes no hayan viajado por aire en algún tiempo pueden ser disculpados si se quejan de que van un poco más apretujados en el avión. Las aerolíneas siempre han estado buscando la forma de instalar tantos asientos como sea posible en sus aeronaves, y no han dejado de hacerlo a pesar de que vienen de registrar un periodo de ganancias récord. En 2016 ganaron un total de $13,500 millones.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
