Air travel isn’t what it used to be. People today feel more like cattle herded into an overcrowded flying tin barn than valued customers.
Just when you thought flying commercial couldn’t get any more demeaning, a video surfaced today of a man – reportedly a doctor – being forcibly dragged off an overbooked United flight from Chicago to L.A.
Apparently, the poor guy was selected as the passenger to give up his seat. He refused. That’s when United made the genius decision to drag him off the flight while bloodied and screaming. It’s like an awful scene out of Fahrenheit 151.
Of course, the entire thing was captured on video. It will probably be Exhibit A in the massive lawsuit this guy is about to file. Also, way to just sit there and do nothing, everyone on the damn flight. Pathetic.
Here’s the video of the PR disaster as it unfolded:
