My 1st flight to HK from Chicago, was cancelled in 2000 when we all were at the airport waiting to board because the flight crew didn't have enough sleep! WTF!!???

We got a room and $5 voucher for food. I lost a whole day of my vacation.

In 2005, flying back to HK from orlando, I found 2 old ladies in our seats. I complained but the stewardess said they could stay there and put my wife and I 2 rows apart in the back of the plane.

The kicker was they asked a gal if she wanted to give my wife her seat and move to 1st class! WTF!?

I was f'n livid the whole flight.

I can't wait to see what happens Friday. I'm ready, I have lawyers already waiting in the states. lol!! True.
Going to meet them for another matter. HAHAHA!!

I'm getting pissed off just thinking about it now.






ETA; I'm quite sure they were all United flights.

I've been watching this all day, and yet no one is focusing on China threatening to nuke N. Korea, Korea threatening to Nuke our carriers, and Putin / Syria threatening to fire upon us. This is a distraction.

There are a lot of stars and planets lining up over the Korean Peninsula. I was going to write a thread about it, but I took a nap instead. Maybe tomorrow.

don't think so,
he managed to avoid the cops and get back on the plane...
here's a video of him clinging to a pole or something at the back of the plane.

he's in a chicago hospital..
or at least was when this story was written..

What about the good Samaritan ideology, I see that was only shown a little bit through this whole thing.
We are so conditioned to just shut up and say and do nothing when we see our fellow man oppressed.
We need to stick up for one another, we could literally be next, but are too scared, those passengers should have risen up in protest, when this went down. Some did I see, but most sat silently, at least some filmed it to get it out.

Wrong is wrong, this is a valuable lesson in group psychology, it also shows just how easy it for those with power over us to seize power over our personal sovereignty.

This whole thing shows something else, only maybe 5% say something, if those voices are then eliminated as a warning, who is left to say and do anything....and that is how the Nazi's took over Germany.

Just heard about this incident tonight. Did the doctor get a multi-million dollar settlement? If not yet, he will.

This is the problem with that kind of cold reasoning and analysis of the nature of human self interest.


I have a strong feeling that in response to my reply you are going to employ emotional reasoning and an appeal to moral absolutes in an effort to demonstrate how cold I really am.


In a time of crisis, Civility breaks down.


Please tell me you are not suggesting that people being stuck on a plain that is yet to have taken off, which has no impending danger for anyone on board, or where an airline acts in accordance with the law of the country they are in and the policies of their own company is somehow representative of a crisis? O.o


This is why an enlightened mutual best interest, altruism and even love for one's fellow man is superior to a purely "rational self interest", because amid competing self-interest, once again, chaos.


You make out as if it were a simple case of one side being oppressed by the one other side. Who are the villains in this story, exactly? The airline, the police, the other passengers aside from the victim? Who are the heroes? The doctor who got kicked off? The police for neutralising a threat? The other passengers for not stopping the police from doing the job they were obligated to perform?


This is one of many reasons that I firmly believe in and subscribe to the Christian ethic and ideal and by that I'm not referring to Christians in general or Churchianity, but to the unassailable reason and logic of the basis of that kind of love, which ironically, the cold-hearted rationalists cannot understand for the life of them and it remains in their blind spot.


The "unassailable reason and logic of the basis of that kind of love"? How can unconditional love be the basis of reason and logic? Are you suggesting that a mother who refuses to identify the location of her serial killer son, despite knowing where he is, knowing that he is going to murder more people and knowing that he will never utter another word to her in his life, is not wrong for not telling the police where he is? That kind of seems what you are arguing...


I'm obviously referring to a larger context that this isolated incident.


For those of us not intelligent enough to comprehend your metaphor (?), please do explain it a little more clearly.

Want to hear something totally funny that throws off your theory? 2 hours later he was back on and allowwed to fly to his destination.


Stop making things up, he was in a Chicago hospital as of yesterday.


Dao told WLKY-TV that he was not doing well and that he was still in a hospital in Chicago. When asked what his injuries were, he said “everything,” the station reported. Source

Poop guy, so sad. Like another poster suggested they should of upped the compensation for giving up seat, to make it worth getting on another flight.

This is exactly why I will never fly UA, besides the fact their airline has always been second rate IMO. Even if I would fly through them, I would now have to worry there could be a chance they would call in the police to drag me off the plane if I didn't want to give up my seat I paid for.

I really hope this guys sues the airline for personal distress , I'm sure UA could of offered him something more then $800.

and.......she totally ignores that fact that it went that far in the first place...doesn't even mention the callus CEO basically blaming the passenger......it WAS not an overbooking but it was originally handled as such


I get that the 4 employees needed to get to kentucky, and I feel bad how they were treated, but their employer caused this to happen in the first place by handling this situation in such a poor manner ,they didn't drag the guy off the plane knocking him out in the process and bleeding., but they got some of the flak for it...they are lucky no one else got hurt.

I had already posted asking wasn't there a charter flight ,a personal plane , a flight on another airline...would be nice to know....

yes there are 2 sides to every story...but...the situation never should have escalated that far and the CEO released that bullcrap first message..he had NO empathy and basically blamed the passenger.........so wrong.

so here is the latest...the CEO says they will never do this again!!!! www.dailymail.co.uk...

he made an appearance on good morning america, said he felt shame...yeah..we all felt that shame in the release (NOT!) there was no empathy and blamed the passenger

Yeah Hey!.

All them people sat there and bitched about how badly that guy was being treated there...

Like all those people on those planes on 9/11.

If the people stood up and refused to accept this type of thing, it wouldn't happen.

What are they gonna do?, kick everyone off the plane for kicking the cops off?.

No money to be made that way....

The man was trying to get back home apparently though. and i heard clarification and yeah apparently he snuck back on but he was wrongfully removed in the first place,and I think he was in shock more like it instead. UA doesnt have its policy posted for people to read apparently.
I got my info from a twitter post about the man by a passenger on the plane about his state.
