    Seems United has caught on as Denmark isn’t even an option anymore.

    Here is who killed this deal

    “Megan McCarthy, a spokeswoman for Chicago-based United Continental Holdings Inc., wasn’t aware of the fares when reached by phone Wednesday and said she would look into the matter.”

    How do those sayings go? “Do unto others…” or, maybe “An eye for an eye”? Of course all of us have sold something worth $12,000 for $50. So, it’s only fair to do the reverse. We wouldn’t complain, would we?

    Didn’t think so. Welcome back to reality. It’s never a one-way street.

    Denmark is a country, not a state. Just FYI.

    Dansk, he is referring to to Hamlet, FYI.
