United Flight Beat Up

United Airlines overbooked Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville and when one passenger who was randomly chosen to be kicked off the plane refused to leave, United used goon tactics to drag him out of his seat and off the plane.

The man was already sitting in his seat when security officers arrived. Once they arrived, the three security officers forcibly lifted him out of his seat and then dragged him through the aisle. His wife then followed him.


And here’s another angle:

The man was reportedly a doctor who needed to see patients at a hospital in the morning.

United Airlines responded:

 Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked,” the spokesperson said. “After our team looked for volunteers, one customer refused to leave the aircraft voluntarily and law enforcement was asked to come to the gate.

We apologize for the overbook situation. Further details on the removed customer should be directed to authorities.

Except United does not tell you that the reason the man was removed because they needed to make room for their own stand-by employees. That’s right: This man was removed from his own flight which he paid for so United could seat their own employees instead.

After the man was forcibly removed from the plane, eyewitness Audra D. Bridges reports he somehow was able to get back on the plane where a medical crew began treating him. Bridges reports the man was disoriented and his face was bloody when he reentered the plane.

There is absolutely no way I will ever be flying United Airlines ever again if this is the way they treat paying customers for their own mistakes. I don’t care if they even offered passengers monetary incentives to give up their seats. This man paid for his seat. He bought a ticket and expected United to honor their promise upon purchase. They did not. Instead they used a bunch of goons to physically assault him. This man got the jackboot of United Airlines all because he paid for an airline ticket with United Airlines.

Share if you are DISGUSTED with United Airlines and their treatment of their own passengers!
