You wouldn't back out from a bet that you offered would you?

If you really need it picked up, my wife works in Palm Beach and she can arrange to pick it up, but it would be so much easier if you did it by Paypal.

Sorry cash only, better hurry wife says it looks like her money.

The man acted like an ass on the plane and had to be removed by force. He should have been the one paying the airline.

Chicago Aviation Police (CAP) recording of initial call in David Dao incident, which proves that they knew in advance that Dao wasn't creating a disturbance and did not pose a threat. Official CAP standard operating procedures forbid them from entering a plane for the purpose of enforcing airline business decisions like this incident, oversolds etcetera. CAP are only authorized to get involved if there is a clear threat to safety and/or security. United Airlines and CAP both screwed the pooch, and UA had to pay. Justice well served.

Let's remember that, the next time you are already on a plane, in your assigned seat, with your luggage on board and your carry on stowed.

Amen! Can you imagine any other industry trying $hit like that?

What if you checked in a hotel and had already occupied your room, then some hotel employees come knock on your door and tell you you have to leave immediately because they need the room for some of their employees - and threaten to have you removed by the police if you refuse?! It would be preposterous, as were the actions of United in the Dao incident.

"Bumping" situations are supposed to be handled on the ground before the passenger is allowed on the plane. But once the passenger is allowed to take his seat on the plane and his checked luggage is on the plane, then removing him is total BS.

Not surprising and rightfully so, Trump's Department of Transportation is investigating the incident for possible violations of federal consumer protection laws.

I disagree with this but I do think there are two obscenities here:

Obscene act 1: Dragging a man off a plane.  Wrong by anyone's standards.
Obscene act 2: A 7 figure pay out.  Wrong by anyone's standards.

A hysterical act followed by a hysterical response IMO.

Major changes happened across airline rules concerning bumping off passengers because of him.  If he stood up and walked out like a submissive sheep then the problem will still persist today.  Big corporations don't listen unless they get hit with lawsuit.

Southwest announced yesterday they will never overbook flights anymore,  Delta announced they will increase their bumping budget to $10,000.  UA announced they will never use airport security to bump passengers anymore, they increased their bumping budget, they will retrain their entire staff, and crew members that have to use their plane to fly have to show up an hour early.  All this changes happened because of Dao and it benefits us.  A 69 year old stood his ground against big corporate and won.

Passenger dragged off United flight has reached an ‘amicable’ settlement with the airline

 

 

Quote

 

THE Kentucky doctor who sustained a broken nose, lost teeth and a concussion after being violently dragged off an overbooked United Airlines flight earlier this month has settled with the airline, his lawyers announced Thursday.

Dr David Dao and United reached an “amicable” settlement for an undisclosed amount, according to a statement from his lawyers.

Terms of the settlement are confidential.

Lawyer Thomas Demetrio, praised United CEO Oscar Munoz.

“Mr Munoz said he was going to do the right thing and he has,” said Mr Demetrio.

“In addition, United has taken full responsibility for what happened on Flight 3411, without attempting to blame others, including the City of Chicago. For this acceptance of corporate accountability, United is to be applauded.”

United didn’t immediately comment on the settlement.

The airline was forced to apologise for the embarrassing April 9 incident, which was recorded by fellow passengers and showed the 69-year-old man ripped from his seat by police officers at Chicago O’Hare Airport.

Dr Dao, who was travelling with his wife on the connecting Kentucky-bound flight back to home to Louisville, refused to get off the plane to make room for crew members on the overbooked flight.

As a result, Dr Dao was left bloodied and injured and was slated to undergo reconstruction surgery, his lawyer said shortly after the debacle.
