Sorry, love, but I am in a disagreeable state of mind. Nothing personal.
There are some most excellent comments today, and I will drop the hissy fit long enough to thank each of you.
Air is busy buying up chains and creating opulent new segments, far away from whinging guests and ungrateful cities.
Me? I looked backwards. I started advertising directly to the same people whose housing was being scooped up by Airbnb hosts on a monthly, quarterly, and semi annual basis.
Okay, the timing was good, and I was lucky.
But I will add that there are a lot of really good people out there.
I am grateful for Air’s volume. But in reference to the OP, it has become inconsistent and at times blindly anti-social. People like the OP are getting hurt.
