@cicerone imposter,
Seems this CEO is suddenly chirping a little bit differently now - just got this in my email :

BREAKING NEWS
The CEO of United Airlines has issued a stronger apology about a passenger who was dragged off a United Express flight, calling the confrontation ‘‘truly horrific."

Oscar Munoz said in a note to employees Tuesday that he continues to be disturbed by the events Sunday night in Chicago.

He said, ‘‘No one should ever be mistreated this way." Munoz was widely criticized for two statements Monday about the altercation in which he described the 69-year-old man taken off the plane as "disruptive and belligerent.’’

@Linkat,
Still too weak. This guy doesn't belong as the head of any company. He's clueless.

Seems like some people left the plane after the incident - I don't blame them....

Has anyone posted about the first class passenger removed from a United flight in handcuffs the previous week - because there was a more important passenger?

thank goodness they have Sean Spicer to take the attention off them

@cicerone imposter,
Common sense can do it but there is none! One million dollars to each passenger, public apologies and change of behaviour tomorrow morning if there is a competent manager in the junk.

@Fil Albuquerque,
They have not shown any thus far.
It's not only United Airlines. Many huge companies are headed by dotes who doesn't understand the first thing about "the customer is always right." You don't make an incident into a company crisis like United Airlines did.
They all seemed to have left their brains on the pillow when they got up that morning.

The" Doc" is a convicted felon and a married man, who traded (according to the NYPost) gay sex for drugs and as a result lost his right to practice medicine for 5 years.

Perhaps, United Airlines should ban all felons from flying on their planes. That should eliminate any future problems.

@Miller,
So, United wasn't wrong to direct his forcible removal because he had a felony on his record?
If his record had been squeaky clean,would United have been wrong then?

@snood,
I read it wasn't as big a deal as Miller said, which I likely saw at a better news source. Of course I'm not sure, but I think one old felony for a 70 year old person is not especially unusual, and in any case is irrelevant to the behavior of the overselling airline corporation.

So do you think that United went and looked up every passenger's record and/or googled them to see if there was any dirty laundry in a passenger's past so if they were bump them - at least they would bump the least desirable person in their opinion? Maybe that is why everyone was boarded before deciding who to bump?

Yeah that is why airlines check every single passenger's past record before issuing tickets didn't you know this?

I bet the teens with the leggings had to go to dentation once too.

Banning felons wouldn't help a bit. I have no felonies and I would have refused to give up my seat.

If I had pressing, time-sensitive business, I think I would refuse also. But if I didn't - and they offered enough compensation, I could be bargained with.

Just curious - about "banning felons". How exactly would they go about doing that? Check everyone through some kind of FBI registry a sthey go through the metal screener?
