I would say an apology is the very least to be done here, how about a full FAA investigation?

Please understand, I think United needs to apologize to the entire plane of people. The fellow who was dragged off the plane, like I said, I hope he gets a million dollars from them. If I were on the jury, I'd give it to him. I do not know who authorized security to remove the man from the plane. Whoever that person was, should be fired. I don't know if the supervisor was the one who authorized it, or someone above them. They had apparently offered $800 a person to pax to get them to get off and no one volunteered. To ME, they just needed to offer more money until they got someone. This is just outrageous behavior. The airline CREATED the situation with overbooking the plane to begin with. Airlines are making extraordinary amounts of money these days, and this situation is just another result of their greed.

If they needed to get that crew to a destination for another flight then they should have just ponied up the money and bought tickets from another airline for the crew that wasn't sold up.

That's assuming that there were seats on another flight on another airline. Regardless, United is totally in the wrong here. So far, their head has only apologized that people had to be re-accommodated on another flight. They need to apologize for a whole lot more than that.

Apparently there are 7 reasons the airlines can remove someone from a flight. Interesting!

I actually learned something from that--you can get CASH, as compared to a travel voucher, which may be difficult to use..
