Johnny Jet joins Rich to talk travel. Johnny Jet says that the Companion Pass on Southwest is one of the best deals in travel, where you can bring a companion for only the cost of tax and fees. But you need 125,000 travel points to qualify effective Jan. 1.
Johnny Jet wants to talk about the United Airlines fiasco and he says that there is a lot of misinformation going around about what happened. The Captain has the power to remove anyone from his plane, and that's how it should be. But Leo says that United made the mistake of bumping a passenger after they got on the plane and settled in. They should have done it before boarding. It was also not a United flight. It was Republic Airways, a subsidiary. In the end, it was bad customer relations and United is paying for it.
