UA's stock is already down today..


Yeah it didn't help that UA's CEO came out and basically admitted no wrong hood on UA's part.


I think "wrong hood" is something you say before mugging someone..

Not sure though..

No. I was agreeing with IntheLight and that the claim he was being discriminated against is a stretch.
Thanks for clarifying. It sure is bad practice no matter what.

I just saw this:

Dr. Dao World Series of Poker player after license suspended

Hmmm, did he right his ways? Not sure the whole Dr. thing fits. I don't think it matters if you are a Dr., Senator, or a ditch digger. You buy the ticket, they give you a seat on the plane, then NO they can't kick you off just cause they want that seat back.

Here is a link to know 5 facts about Dr. Dau:

This is making my day by the way:
Merriam-Webster trolls United for use of 'volunteer' in statement after passenger dragged off flight

Merriam-Webster trolled a statement United Airlines issued Monday after a passenger was violently dragged off an overbooked flight.

The dictionary company pointed to the use of "volunteer" in the airline's statement. " 'Volunteer' means 'someone who does something without being forced to do it,' " it tweeted.

'Volunteer' means “someone who does something without being forced to do it.” t.co...

Hopefully this will filter down to the other Corporate establishments that the American consumer has had enough of their BS.

Yeah discrimination or no, it was a bad thing to do and the policies are outdated.

Twitter went off on suggestions for new United Airlines Motto's

"We put the Hospital in Hospitality"

"Not enough seating, prepare for a beating"

Also on twitter was a fellow passenger who said when United offered Money to get off the plane...one passenger said they would deplane for $1600 and the flight attendant laughed in his face.

I wonder how that $1600 offer looks to United today?

If not, just let it fade from memory, fly out on them this weekend.

A few years ago US Airways forced a blind passenger off a flight due to his dog. The other passengers raised so much hell, the flight was cancelled. It would've been great had that happened here.

It'll bounce back. Which means this is a buying opportunity for Big Money types.

The solution is very easy. Offer refunds up to three days before a flight. If you don't make it after that, then you pay for the seat unless someone else does use it. Set up a cash fund instead of this voucher crap. Be willing to pay what is needed if you have to have a seat for whatever reason.


United made some very bad management decisions. Did anyone with UA ask for what someone would take to get off the plane? Give the authority to make on the spot agreements. Also, you can't tell me the airline did not have word these crew were going to come to get on the plane. Just hold their 4 seats. UA dropped the ball, and it's the shareholders and employees that will suffer for it.

Totally agree. That's why I said they need to review their practices.

It's likely that anyone with common sense would see that a child would be with parents and/or it would be inappropriate to do this to a child.
