    Its United's fault for overselling tickets, other then that blame the Federal security officers.

    Not sure how this will effect the case........

    Troubling details have emerged about the Kentucky doctor who was dragged off a United Airlines flight at O'Hare International Airport on Monday.

    Dr. David Dao was charged with 98 felony drug counts in 2003 for illegally prescribing and trafficking painkillers such as hydrocodone, OxyContin and Percocet, according to TMZ.

    According to a criminal complaint filed against him, Dao also allegedly solicited sex from a male patient in exchange for drug prescriptions.

    Dao, who attended medical school in Vietnam in the 1970s, was eventually convicted on six felony counts of obtaining drugs by fraud and deceit.

    except in this case it wasn't overbooking. the flight was full and going to take off. united had 4 crew they needed in the destination city that night for a flight the next morning. they needed to make room for their crew so they were going to eject 4 people from their seats.

    i hate overbooking for obvious reasons, but this is just united kicking off paying passengers cause they need the room for themselves.

    5 hour drive would have resolved this.
    calling another airline and asking for 4 seats and a promise to payback the favor later.
    finding a local crew to work the other flight

    all other valid options but they chose to kick off paying passengers and one very badly.

    as for hit 2003 crimes, interesting but not relevant.

    Probably won't affect it at all.

    His rights are his rights. Excessive, brute force was used.

    I just want to say that I hope this guy gets a lot of $$$$$ and put a hurting on United's pocketbook. That airline has gone down drastically, they pack us in like sardines and the customer service is pretty much non-existent.

    A few weeks ago, I flew with my two little ones(no wife, just us 3) to Houston for a few days. I bought the tickets months in advance with no choice to pick seats at the time. Well, needless to say, once I got the boarding passes I discovered us in three different areas of the plane. The last row, one seat in the middle and another one about 8 rows up.

    What is that nonsense? Buy three tickets together but get three different locations with two girls under the age of 6?? The woman at the boarding gate pretty much ignored my request to sit us together. Common sense should slap them in the face to place an adult with two children in the same row when the tickets are purchased.

    Same thing on the way back to LA, three separate seats but at least all within 10 rows of one another. It is a pita to control two kids on a plane when you are not near them. I asked people both ways to switch so I can be with them and not one person offered to move.

    I sure wish they would have picked my name to be removed from that flight.......I would have put up a fight and be about $200 million richer [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That is craziness. They should have accommodated you.
    Passengers should do the right thing when it comes to kids.

    I asked myself this question... so I'll ask you the same.

    Would you just let them drag you off to ensure most $$$

    Or

    Would you punch each of them in the face as they dragged you out maybe not ensuring the money $$$


    In the moment I probably couldn't stop myself from hitting back.
    Premeditated... I might (hold back)

    You don't need to control them in that situation, hand them some red bulls and put on headphones and let the fun begin.

    If it's available to your family as an alternate carrier, consider Southwest next time. You have the freedom to sit anywhere but it's advantageous to get everyone onboard as quickly as possible though. :p

    I don't understand the "excessive" part of this force thing. I get that United was wrong, yada yada. I wouldn't argue that. However, if the man is required to get off (for whatever right or wrong reason) but refuses to do so, what other method is there? Especially when he resists? I'm not sure what lesser level of force would have been effective.
