I think people over-exaggerate with this..
Stanford Rosenthal@stan · Designer
@baidoct what specifically is exaggerated? Do you mean "over reacted"? If so, perhaps it's that people resonate with the incident and feel it represents their experiences with the company. I certainly feel that way.

@baidoct Until it happens to you.
Nick Perkins@nickprkins · iOS Developer & Startup Enthusiast
@baidoct don't let it "drag you down" man if you can't relate. Many can though.
Deandre Durr☀️@dredurr · Growth Hacker
@baidoct How would you like to get your @$$ whooped for not volunteering to leave your seat?
Fiess Edouard@fiessedouard · co-founder @ navily
@nickprkins @baidoct +1 for the pun
Nichole Elizabeth DeMeré@nikkielizdemere · Moderator at Product Hunt
@baidoct By the way, turns out the passenger who was dragged from the flight suffered a concussion and a broken nose.
@nikkielizdemere @baidoct and if that's not bad enough, he was also a doctor flying to help patients.

@baidoct agreed, it wasn't even anyone from United who removed the man..all airlines do it, this joker just decided to not listen, get over it.
Rohan Jayasekera@rohansj · CTO, Urbery
@letsej13 @baidoct And of course "all airlines do it" makes it okay.
Towa Beer@towa_beer
@baidoct ...said no POC ever.
Daniel@zappe
@rohansj ofc, you are not entitled to a seat just because you buy a ticket
Daniel@zappe
@dredurr if they tell you to leave most normal people would leave.
Geoff Abbott@geoff_abbott · LA Powerhouse
@baidoct umm.. whom exactly "over-exaggerated" on this one?
Kevin Yu@dreampod · Director, Dreampod
@baidoct ui designer that lacks empathy and grammatical sense!
Mark Zajac@zajacm · Peek my curiosity and be rewarded!
@joericho @nikkielizdemere @baidoct AND lost two teeth.

Man, good lesson here not to piss off the internet.
Patrick Dugan@patrick_dugan1 · blah blah
Facts: 1- The dude’s wife had originally accepted the voucher and they had deplaned. When they found out that the timing of new flight doesn’t work, the dude forces himself past gate agents on the flight. 2- At that point this is a security breach and police was called. Chicago PD had to forcibly remove him after he refused to leave. 3- They had to open seats for united employees because they were on flight clock, and had to crew another flight leaving Louisville. Failure to get them there would cancel flight for 80+ people

@patrick_dugan1 still not his problem that United plays the overbooking game, tho. He was a paying customer, voucher timing or not. Ya know?
Daniel@zappe
@brynatweets still not entitled to a seat. Ya know?
Pooya Tolideh@ptolideh
@patrick_dugan1 Fact: flight wasn't overbooked. It was United that screwed up. Fact: guy lost 2 teeth and had concussion. Fact: you gotta seriously be an asshole to justify what happened.
Patrick Dugan@patrick_dugan1 · blah blah
@ptolideh @brynatweets So the police tell you to get off the plane, you ignore them (wtf??), in the process of being physically removed (again, your choice) you get injured and you don't assume any responsibility??
Daniel@zappe
@ptolideh why did they tell him to leave a none full flight?

I haven't tried this extension, but it's an interesting way to build on the news from this PR disaster. I'm still waiting for the Dr. Dao iPhone game...
Vojtech Rinik@_vojto · Founder at Median.tech
This too shall pass... But good PR play of whoever made this.
Jamie Martin@livejamie · Senior UX/UI at Raven Software
@_vojto I'd like to think it's one of the other airlines doing it in secret
