We all know the situation or most know of the unfortunate situation that happened on a United plane a few days ago when a man was dragged off a United Airlines flight at O’Hare International Airport on Sunday, the footage traveled fast.
The media,social media helped to all condemn an airline which in truth did nothing wrong. People forget the fine print, and there are legally are allowed to remove passengers for various situations and reasons.
Now we know there was a crew which had to deadhead asap to insure another flight and others continue. (0 percent of the time airlines plan on deadheading crews in their scheduling. However there are weather issues which cause major disruptions and major changes.It costs th e airline less to remove passengers then to cancel flights. NOW if you’d rather them just cancel those flights thatch fine, but copay will loose great income and the price will be at your cost as a passenger. Prices for tickets could go higher up It is better in the over all to remove passengers
Fact anytime you purchase ticket you agree in payment to comply to all crew and airline instructions period
Fact airline offered compensation-
A couple others also required to leave aircraft did not happy but did not have a fit or have to be carried
It was random selection.
Now he was asked several times to go
He was out of compliance refusing to leave, 2nd he broke security when he came back on plane. His injuries was an accident as he had to be forcibly removed. What was the airline supposed to leave plane and all pax sitting for hours till he decided ok time to go???
Adults time to act like adults, when someone in authority calls you to do something even if you do not like it but it is legal just comply be much easier.
Also what is we , the media with all the UAL bashing teaching kids, just have enough of a fit and get what you want or you can sue??? What is wrong with our society when we encourage if you dont agree, like it when a company does something still legal, it is ok to disobey, to rebel, to have a fit to bask. We do not even think there is a reason…. we do not listen to the other side period. Funny if we had to deal lets see if you could do any better with all your responsibilities etc. Know the whole story. Enough of the bashing.
Then adults booing the crew which boarded they did notta wrong but take it out on them way to go adults.
Like it or not truth is if he complied the unfortunate accident would not have happens. Period Comply or do not fly. Simple.
United Airlines passenger is dragged off plane because airline overbooked
In a letter to employees, United Airlines’ parent company chief executive Oscar Munoz revealed the company had been trying to make room for four employees of a partner airline, which resulted in four passengers being told to get off the flight from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport to Louisville.
After the plane was fully boarded, the company’s “gate agents were approached by crew members that were told they needed to board the flight”, the message leaked to ABC said.
“We sought volunteers and then followed our involuntary denial of boarding process (including offering up to $1,000 in compensation) and when we approached one of these passengers to explain apologetically that he was being denied boarding, he raised his voice and refused to comply with crew member instructions,” Mr Munoz said.
“He was approached a few more times after that in order to gain his compliance to come off the aircraft and each time he refused and became more and more disruptive and belligerent.”
Mr Munoz said he was “upset” by the incident, but added that employees had “followed established procedures for dealing with situations like this”.
