Very interesting indeed. This was not an overbooking situation at all, and the guy wasn't manhandled until after he ran back onto the plane. At that time he became a security risk.

No, that's not true. #6 in her blog was absolutely incorrect. He was manhandled and drug down the aisle, hitting his head on one of the seats, and was virtually knocked unconscious to begin with. All of that was BEFORE he ran back on the plane, which I don't understand how that could have happened, that he was able to run back onto the plane. But his injuries definitely happened in the first go round.

There were several inaccuracies in her post, including that "must fly" business. The flight that the crew was supposed to man was due to leave the NEXT morning, and United could have gotten the crew there by driving 4 hours. As it was, the plane left three hours late, so driving would have gotten them there at almost the same time.

See where the officer has finally been suspended pending investigation.

Pretty much standard procedure with an officer involved incident.

In a death, certainly, that's standard procedure.

And so it's started. The passenger has a high powered attorney on this.

An interesting read below:

A Pilot Wife Perspective




Interesting read indeed. The writer raises some valid points, and is completely wrong on others. I would like to see the DOT reg which is referred to in the post though. Also, there is no mention of bumping for "must ride" in any airline's Contract of Carriage which I've ever read, and I've read many.

I was not trying to create any more controversy about this, just posting another perspective and information. Some is probably factual and some is probably opinion.

While I do not agree with how things were initially handled and what has been shown in the press....I do wonder if there is more to this story than what any of us know at this time? Ugly situation and probably more information and facts than what has already been released.
