    What do you bet, other passengers on that flight sue for emotional distress at witnessing this?

    Such boneheads in charge on that flight, even 5 grand would have saved them money in this case.

    Everyone got a 'thanks' from me for posting in this thread. It is news.

    I think there is going to be an additional problem for manhandling a 69 year old man. Heard on news, China has remarked in him being Asian.

    United Airlines was very stupid having this happen!

    United Airlines says controversial flight was not overbooked; CEO apologizes again

    excerpt from the link:

    United spokesman Jonathan Guerin said Tuesday that all 70 seats on United Express Flight 3411 were filled, but the plane was not overbooked as the airline previously reported. Instead, United and regional affiliate Republic Airlines, which operated the flight, selected four passengers to be removed to accommodate crew members needed in Louisville the next day. The passengers were selected based on a combination of criteria spelled out in United’s contract of carriage, including frequent-flier status, fare type, check-in time and connecting flight implications, among others, according to United.

    Three passengers went quietly. The fourth, who was literally pulled out of his seat and off the plane, was David Dao, a physician in Elizabethtown, Ky...more at link
    This (overbooking)among many other lies told by the airline and airport security. No one should have been asked to leave, as the flight was not overbooked to begin with.

    They have lost 255 million already in stock drops. Wow.

    The flight was from Chicago to Louisville? In the amount of time it takes to take off, fly there, and disembark, those 4 employees probably could have just taken a car.

    Right, I wasn't talking about this particular instance. If they had to kick people off for their own crew then that's a different problem. Awful planning.

    the latest:


    According to the New York Post, Dao is a 69-year-old father of five -- four of his children are also doctors -- and a grandfather. He went to medical school in Vietnam in the 1970s before moving to the U.S., where he has a criminal past.

    Dao was arrested in 2003 after being accused of trading prescription drugs for sexual favors from a male patient he later hired. He denied paying for sex, but was charged with 98 felony drug counts for illegally prescribing and trafficking painkillers, including hydrocodone, Oxycontin and Percocet.

    The Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure says Dao was convicted of multiple felonies in 2004 and was placed on five years supervised probation in early 2005. He surrendered his medical license a month later.

    Dao was allowed to continue practicing medicine again in 2015 under limited conditions. He and his wife, Teresa, have an office together in Elizabethtown.

    TMZ reports the medical board imposed more restrictions last year, only allowing him to practice internal medicine in an outpatient facility one day a week. A doctor said Dao had interpersonal problems and would often "unilaterally choose to do his own thing."

    I agree it really messes with people's plans but usually the person bumped comes out way ahead. Instead of getting physical with this poor guy they should have done what K suggested, make an offer someone won't refuse who doesn't 'gotta get home', can wait for another flight and get handsomely rewarded for their patience.
    I understand the business reason behind it and I agree that there could be methods for it that minimize the disruption but it still seems kind of crazy to me that a viable business model involves the possibility that you have to tell some customers who paid for tickets that they can't actually board.

    Or even worse, already boarded and told too bad, we have crew who need your seat, even though they arent scheduled to work till tommorrow..

    He loved it. Probably had an orgasm when he was gettin pulled by the officers. Good on him the little perv.
