Earlier today (Apr 10), footage was released that showed a man get physically removed from a United Airlines flight.
It all went down Sunday night where they accidentally overbooked a flight from Chicago to Louisville. According to a report, United had offered $400 and a stay at a hotel for one person to take a different flight the next day at 3 p.m. Once people boarded the flight they were told that they needed four people to give up seats for United employees that had to be in Louisville.
When no one got up, an offer was increased to $800. Then according to the Courier-Journal four people were then selected. One passenger refused to get up allegedly citing that he was a doctor and had patients to attend to before he was dragged off the airplane.
United responded to the backlash with a statement:
