Katie Couric Pulls Strings and Delays Delta Shuttle flight out of Washington, D.C


In the words of Katie Couric and all like her who think for some reason they are privileged and more important than they rest of us, “Don’t you know who I am?”

Katie Couric delayed fellow passengers aboard a New York-bound jet from Washington, DC as their plane was about to taxi to the runway. After the airplane door was closed, she got out of her seat and begged the pilot to allow one of her late-arriving producers to board. Nothing like preferential treatment. Hmm … and I thought such practices were illegal and against Homeland Security guidelines after 9-11. Wonder what would happen to you or I if we tried such a stunt.

“It was like, ‘Who the hell does she think she is?’ ” fumed one passenger who observed Couric’s diva-like antics. “If you or I attempted something like this, we’d be cooling our heels at Guantanamo.”

“One flight attendant rolled her eyes and told me, ‘This is only the second time I’ve ever seen this happen – the other time was a sick passenger,’ “ the witness said.

UPDATE: Greta, with all due respect, spare us the violins. Amazing how those in the media defend their own. Greta, maybe you defend this because you would have done the same thing. Those of us common people are not allowed those same opportunities. I cannot believe that you would actually defend this action that goes against “homeland security” guidelines because Katie is one of your own.

By the way, did you see the articles about Katie Couric holding up a Delta flight for her producer? She got slapped around by the media for it. Don’t forget that Katie Couric also did the unthinkable on the shuttle to NYC awhile back  she gave up her aisle seat to someone and took a middle seat! That gesture is also unthinkable  unthinkably nice  no one wants a middle seat. As we get ready for the Couric roll out, we might think about cutting her some slack  she is there because she has staying power and has beaten out everyone else. I don’t know her (never met her), but I am willing to tip my hat to someone achieving great success rather than wanting to take her down a few notches because of jealousy.

Maybe Greta will add to her “GretaWire” the fact that I and many others who do not have the name Katie have given up their seats, including first class, to military personnel.
