On Sunday, a man was dragged off United Airlines Flight 3411 by police while other passengers looked on in horror and disbelief.

A few passengers recorded the incident.

Here’s a video, in case you missed it:

The man, who we now know is Dr. David Dao, was forcibly removed from the plane because United Airlines overbooked the flight…sort of. Four United employees needed to get back to Louisville (which is about a 4 hour drive from Chicago). When none of the passengers voluntarily gave up their seats, United took action.

Violent action.

The video went viral, and oh, the internet responded in a glorious way.

On Monday, the airline defended its actions and seemed to blame Dao for the incident, calling the man “disruptive and belligerent” in a statement.

That annoyed people – understandably.

But later in the day, CEO Oscar Munoz doubled down with another statement, saying:

“This is an upsetting event to all of us here at United. I apologize for having to re-accommodate these customers. Our team is moving with a sense of urgency to work with the authorities and conduct our own detailed review of what happened.”

As you can imagine, this really did not go over well with the public.

The word “re-accommodate” in Munoz’s “apology” stuck out more than the rest for some.

Competing airlines are probably really enjoying this.

And the hits just keep coming…

    Hope the guy sues the heck out of United.

  • Howard Beale

    If Americans had any brains or balls (which we know they don’t) they would stop flying entirely until this nonsense with airlines and TSA stop. Of course business will go on as usual since he was acting ‘belligerent’.

      Continental Airlines ex-CEO was quoted today as saying the “doctor was acting immature”. My, how they stick together…….

    • Anna Housholder

      Right on, I haven’t flown since 911, and people should boycott all airlines, if they were smart. Better then groppeling at the feet of ceaser for your food !

      I only fly for business, which is maybe once per year, and to someplace not reachable by car. Otherwise, I drive.

    I don’t see the problem with an airlines dragging paying customers off their planes like this. The proceeds from the law-suits will easily outweigh any temporary inconvenience. Have a nice day United. See you in court:)

    I seriously hope that people are adamant about not using United Airlines as a result of their gross incompetence and complete lack of taking responsibility for it.
    Certainly there has been enough bad publicity because of this that few people don’t know about it. Hopefully people will grow a pair and boycott this shitty airline. And I hope that people are smart enough to realize that if they are willing to spend a couple extra bucks for a plane ticket so they don’t have to use an airline that beats their customers that it might send a message that we are not going to tolerate their bullshit.
