The Six Funniest Twitter Reactions to American Airlines' Bankruptcy

November 29, 2011 at 2:42 PM | by | Comments (0)

In news that surprised no one (except maybe stock holders), American Airlines' parent company AMR filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy today. Nevermind the warning signs and our own horrible experiences with them in just 2011—of three long-haul flights on them, two had long mechanical delays, all served crap meals and all were less than half-full—the Twitter community is still taking the opportunity to find humor in the situation.

Without further ado, Six of the Funniest Tweets on the American Airlines Bankruptcy:

@badbanana: "With American Airlines stock at 20 cents, I can't decide between paying for two checked bags or buying half the company."

@MaxGraham: "American airlines files for bankruptcy. UK embassy in Iran completely overrun. What's next today. Congress going to declare Jello a fruit?" (now that you mention it...)

@hharteveldt: "Seems to me that as an industry airlines do a better job filing bankruptcy than delivering luggage."

@FLYERHULK: "REAL REASON FOR @AmericanAir DECLARE BANKRUPTCY IS THEY NO FIGURE OUT YET HOW TO MAKE 787 WITH SHINY CHROME FINISH."

@justin_stangel: "BREAKING: American Airlines filing Chapter 11. I hope this doesn't hurt AA ability to delay flights and lose luggage"

@TheOnion: "American Airlines Now Charging Fees To Non-Passengers" (one of The Onion's faux news pieces, but the story to accompany it is hilarious as well).

Honorable mentions go to @petershankman and @cliffcourtney as well. Keep the humor coming!

If the bankruptcy news concerns you as a ticket or miles holder on American, many pressing questions are answered right here. The gist of it is, however, that it's all business as usual...for now.
