it would be nice if United does not settle, and actual justice is served. rather like the idiots who tried to sue the movie theater now have to pay
something like $400,000 to the theater company. in fact i would love to see United sue this idiot as well as the media for their fake news over this,
for business losses.
the thing is out of all those involved, United is not actually guilty of any wrongdoing in this incident. first of all this has nothing to do with
overbooking. it was about aircrew needing to go to the other airport. and flying the crew out is mandated by the laws and regulations all air
carriers operate under. this is to keep air travel running as smoothly as possible. just think about it. 4 people inconvenienced, compared to possibly
hundreds that might not get to their destination without that aircrew.
on the other hand this passenger not only broke the terms and conditions every air traveler agrees to. but isn't not doing as aircrew tell you now a
Federal offense? that puts HIM squarely in the wrong. now there are several versions of what happened. he simply refused to get off of the aircraft
being selected by a computer algorithm that uses things like order of ticket purchase, price paid, and time of check in to select people to get off.
he originally volunteered to get off, then changed his mind. as well as having him leave the aircraft then illegally got back on the aircraft. but no
mater what it was, he is primarily at fault for the incident. and since he was refusing to get off (or stay off), the airline had to follow proper
procedure and report the problem to the airport. the airport then sent their security to remove the man. at this point we really do not know
what happened. i have seen no footage that clearly shows what happened. all we know is we see the guy being dragged off and looking like he has some
sort of facial injury. yet there is one thing we do know. he was still resisting. otherwise we would have seen him get up, gather his things and get
off the aircraft (ok in all honesty we would not have seen that, because there would have been no juicy footage to spread across the net, we wouldn't
even know it happened). we do not know what went on between him and security. was he actively fighting them, which could have resulted in his injury?
was he just playing a dead weight, forcing them to extract him, possibly resulting in accidental injury? (which would still be mainly his fault). or
did airport security use excessive force? we simply do not know. and that is being investigated, with those involved apparently suspended until
the outcome of that investigation. the next thing we do know is that the guy was still resisting, since they literally had to drag him off the
the reality is if he wants to sue, he should be suing the Chicago Airport, as it was their employees involved in the injuring of the man. not
the airline. and it should be the Chicago airport receiving all the flack over this incident and not the airline.
