Daily Mail: “Until this morning, I didn’t think anyone would displace the executive team at Pepsi as public relations chumps of the year after their hideous debacle of a commercial featuring Kendall Jenner. Then along came the geniuses at United Airlines, whose company motto, hilariously, is: “Fly the Friendly Skies”.”
“Try purring that cosy little line to the poor man dragged semi-conscious and bleeding profusely off a United plane at Chicago Airport on Sunday night. …
This guy was 69 years old and said he was a doctor on his way to Louisville to treat some patients in hospital.
He’d paid for his ticket and was sitting in his seat on the plane, minding his own business, quietly and patiently waiting for it to take off.”
The flight was overbooked and United was trying to pay passengers to take another flight.
Ever been bumped off an overbooked fight? Delayed for hours? Cancelled or switched? Lost or forced to wait for luggage? Stuck in those x-ray screening lines forever? Forced to give-up a vacation day to be certain you arrive home in time?
