CampeadorThat guy deserved to be thrown off, any man that shrieks like that deserves a bloody nose and far worse.
When you step on a flight, you agree to play by the airlines' rules.
Damn cell phone cameras nowadays, can't do anything.
Never thought i'd agree with you to any point. Cell phone cameras really make it so everyone has to be PC, its nice in some situations like the cops abusing their power, but ive read a bunch of things about how United didnt even kick him off, it was the federal officers, just following their federal laws, which no one knows those rules because they dont read the fine print. Its a shame it was such a shit show situation, United maybe could have dealt with the issue before people boarded the plane, but so many flights and expectations of on time departure caused this to turn into a dumpster fire.
I was reading this article that a pilots wife wrote and she made a great point (and many others) about how if you got dragged off a flight, why the fuck would you go back on the flight? Homeland security is probably one of the most strict law enforcement in our country, you do what they say or else you might get shipped to cuba.
Regardless of the situation, United's sales wont go down either, by next month everyone will have forgotten. United will still overbook flights, nothing will change. Ah well.
