Commentary: CEO of floundering company shouldn't support abortion business
by Keith RilerFriday, September 21, 2012
United has fast become Houston’s most hated airline, not only for providing shoddy service, but because its CEO, Jeff Smisek, supports America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.
On the heels of announcing the closure of its Houston headquarters, United promptly began to whine about cross-town rival Southwest’s desire to fully foot the expansion of Hobby airport to accommodate international routes. Houston City Council swatted United like the gnat it had made itself, and accepted Southwestern’s exclusive $100 million expansion offer.
Being a frequent business flyer, I got to watch all this while also watching on-time arrivals, service quality and baggage handling plummet. I have already looked into transferability of miles and promotional offers from other airlines.
Now comes the news that Jeff Smisek is co-hosting a Planned Parenthood gala in Houston. Not much more needs to be said but suffice it to say, in addition to funding baby killing, he is not very bright. The already booked United flights I have will be the last United flights I take during the Smisek era.
