After the impact of hurricane María over Puerto Rico, the airlines were still selling tickets to non-existent flights to and from the island. It is common knowledge that, like any other company, airlines like to make money; however, I think this action from the airlines should be illegal as they are selling false hopes and a service they cannot deliver or even guarantee in the near future. I believe the airlines are taking advantage of the disgrace of others and offering no solutions or options to the Puerto Rican people. The tickets are also higher than usual because of the demand; therefore, people are expending more money for a ticket to nowhere.
The San Juan airport is currently inoperable and will continue to be that way for the days to come, but the airlines are still selling tickets to "ghost" flights. WHY? They know that only a few flights are leaving the island on a daily basis and thousands of people are at the airport without food, water, electricity, and hoping they can get on a plane that doesn't exist. Enough is enough! Don't take advantage of the misery of your customers, and in this case, of the people of Puerto Rico and those living abroad that are trying to rescue their family members. It is time the airlines know and understand, that as a company you should offer a product or provide a service ONLY WHEN YOU CAN!
