I am sorry, but I should have been more careful in my writing. I referred to him as the British guy because I couldnÂ’t remember his name. However, I didnÂ’t try to imply any thing about Brits. I am also not a native of the US, and have a few great British friends.
In any case, the guys name is John Bingham, and I believe that he is the VP of marketing.
I actually had two similar stands with John on the same day. The first one was after, they discovered that they installed a stormscope by their mistake. I was waiting in the same famous office. John entered and admitted they made a mistake, but they can’t give it for free. He then presented to me 3 options.
Option 1 - go back home and we will build you a new plane within 2 months.
Option 2 - Cirrus will remove the stormscope but I’ll have to stay an extra few days until they remove it.
Option 3 - pay a reduced price, which I admit it was a fair price.
I did eventually decided to buy the stormscope, but I didn’t care at all for the attitude that the options were presented to me. Cirrus made a mistake and they expected me to pay for the consequences. My time was not a value to John. Fly back with two connections to Connecticut, and come back in a few months when we build you a new plane.
