The Unfriendly Skies
United Airlines says a man wouldn’t give up his spot on an overbooked flight Sunday.
So, according to witnesses and videos of the incident, he was pulled screaming from his seat by security, knocked against an arm rest and dragged down the aisle and back to the terminal at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.
The videos are rather unsettling.
One hopes that the passenger, who appears to have been knocked unconscious when he was forcibly removed from the flight, wins a substantial settlement from United.
Further, United will likely soon wish it had found a different way to get those four employees to their destination after the PR fallout from this event.
The whole thing is insane.
