I think people over-exaggerate with this..

@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 don't let it "drag you down" man if you can't relate. Many can though.

@baidoct How would you like to get your @$$ whooped for not volunteering to leave your seat?

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?

@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.

@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...

@_vojto I'd like to think it's one of the other airlines doing it in secret
