ICYMI: United Airlines has been destroyed in the court of public opinion for forcibly removing a passenger from a flight they overbooked. They needed 4 people to leave the plane to accommodate flight crew. No one volunteered.
One passenger, a Dr. who needed to get back to his patients at his hospital in Louisville, was forcibly removed from his seen and dragged off the plane. Watch it here.
Even though experts say you give away many rights when you enter an aircraft, most agree this is HORRIFYINGLY inappropriate. This is how twitter reacted.
