Social media is going berserk over an incident on a United flight last night from ORD to Louisville KY. Seems the flight was overbooked and despite requests to passengers to take $800 for the inconvenience of being bumped, something went awry.
Apparently four crew members had to also get to Louisville on that flight so the conflict began.
One passenger took the video and well, it isn’t pretty.
The guy who took and posted the Twitter feed said that when no one volunteered to get off the plane, United CHOSE who to take. I can’t quite believe this scenario but what strikes me as awful as the video is that everyone FIRST wanted to take video of it and no one got up and objected. No one said, take me, don’t drag that man. I think the other passengers were complicit. I’d never let a fellow passenger suffer that kind of indignity. Would you?
I suspect United is going to have a whole lot of ‘splaining to do.
