Does Friendly Only Start Once You're Airborne?

United claims you can fly the friendly skies however it appears that as long as you're on the ground all bets are off! In a video most of America has seen, a man with a ticket was removed after he had legally boarded a United passenger jet Sunday. Do you suppose it ever occurred to this customer the best way to get arrested was to buy a plane ticket, show up on time and board as instructed? In case you haven't heard United demanded four passengers disembark the flight they were on because United oversold the flight. After they asked for volunteers it boiled down to a lone passenger who refused to leave. The passenger who was forcibly removed by security guards was also a physician. The video is on for all to see.

This is another case of a really big company taking advantage of the little guy. In fact had there not been cell phone video along with numerous outraged witnesses the story might end differently. The story United wants to tell is the flight was oversold and that turned out to be different than the truth. The truth was United needed to fly four of its employees, on non-revenue producing tickets to another location. United made a decision to physically remove a paying customer who had already been ticketed and seated. Any airline passenger who has ever paid attention to the safety lecture prior to a plane departing remembers the familiar ending "it is federal law to obey the flight attendants." Knowing that you might assume the man was properly arrested. This is a question that may have to be answered by the Courts.

It's been less that 2 weeks since United refused to allow a young girl to board a flight wearing leggings citing rules for employees and their family involving standards of dress and now throwing off paid and ticketed passengers to fix a scheduling error. United is the same company whose CEO resigned after approving a bribe to the head of the New York and New Jersey Port Authority. When passengers are subjected to arrest for simply buying a product, the company might realize it is in the middle of a self-induced nightmare and may be on the hook for damages. The video shows the man was left bloodied and was also knocked unconscious as a result of the conduct of the security agents at the gate and the public humiliation and outrage leveled at United.
