Default Fuck you, United!

Hope this guy sues and ends up owning United.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/united-pa...134930951.html

for the lazy:

united overbooks a flight and needs 4 spaces to fly their crew for another flight. Asks for volunteers and no one takes their offer. Computer randomly selects passengers to boot. One is a doctor and refuses. Goons forcibly removes and assaults him.

Was just reading that this morning - absolutely disgusting! He TOLD them he was a Dr and had patients waiting for him, too! Even if that was a lie, why would want to take that chance? There's a plane full of people. pick someone else!!

And for the cops to DRAG him like that!! What in the ACTUAL fuck?!?!? It's not he was that teen bitch that NEEDS to be dragged out somewhere, he is a grown man, who was NOT causing problems!

Unfuckingbelievable.

I will NOT be taking United EVER.

Meh, right or wrong his actions were childish. What normal grown man throws such a tantrum as to be literally dragged away on the floor by his hands?



More to this story I'm sure, but at a minimum this dude is mentally unstable......

I didn't see him acting like a child, all I saw was a guy who didn't want to give up his seat, and rightfully so! It's not HIS fault they overbooked! And, this wasn't even for anyone IMPORTANT, it was for a crew member! You know, the ones who are WALKING around the ENTIRE flight! They have their own seats!

This was absolutely unnecessary of United. I mean, really?! Call the cops because a PAYING customer doesn't want to give up his seat?!?! They handled this ALL wrong. I agree - fuck United.

What?? Mentally Unstable? Did you even see the video? The guy did nothing wrong. They asked him to leave, he told them no and an argument ensued. He continued to refuse to leave, then they physically removed him banging his face on the armrest as they dragged. Every person interviewed has the same story. This is 100% on united.

Regardless if I were a Medical Doctor or a crack addict, I would never let anyone drag me around on the floor by my hands. I'm almost certain there is something wrong with this guy. Maybe I'm wrong, let's see how this all pans out as more facts come to light.

Did the cops really have to go this far? I hope everyone involved is fired.

Fuck United, this will cost them millions.

You get slammed against an armrest and we'll see how coherent you are afterward.

to go from what seems like a calm disagreement (from what video shows and eyewitnesses) to a physical confrontation (dude wasn't breaking any laws) is simply wrong.

hope united goes bankrupt settling this one. just on the heels of refusing to let two teen girls board the plane because they were wearing spandex and using employee tickets and having to apologize for that incident, they now have to settle this. talk about pr nightmare!
one thing is sure, this doc can now either retire or fly free for rest of his life.

I'm saying he is a bit mentally unstable and you say he's an angelic victim. I'm willing to bet he's somewhere in between. Again, let's wait for all of the facts to emerge before we set our hair on fire.

It's all about damage control now, and I sincerely hope they're fucked beyond survival. No excuse.

Guys, you want an entire airline company sued to oblivion because of the actions of a resistant passenger and a few law enforcement/terminal security agents? Really?

Well it would seem some folks would like an entire religion eradicated for the actions of a small percentage of extremist fucks who do not represent even a small percentage of the whole.

Doing that math, although I disagree with the above, fuck yes.

Disregarding that ad hominem, let's all calmly wait until the full story evolves.

If it's later revealed that a vast conspiracy involving the top management of United Airlines against overbooked passengers exists, then yeah we should all hope that a Jury renders a just settlement to any victim/s.

^ Didn't they say it's their policy to overbook? Either way it's on the ticket saying you might have to give up your seat but there has better way to go about it. Make the voucher $2000 and ask anyone, don't make it computerized and the passenger has no choice.

Incoming racial grenade: I wonder how pissed people would be if he were black, muslim or hispanic? .... or if they even would've done it if he were an old white guy.

+1. We fly a lot. Unfortunately AA has all of our miles so we use them frequently. They're almost always overbooked, offer $800-1000 vouchers and there are ALWAYS folks volunteering to snag the voucher.

I think it will come down to the fact that it wasn't overbooked but United showed preference to employees instead of customers.
United stock is currently being "reaccomodated"

United should have figured it all out before they let the people on the plane.
