United Airlines Is Under Fire After The Video Of A Passenger Being Forcibly Dragged Off Overbooked Flight Went Viral

334

Several videos taken by Chicago passengers show officers aggressively dragging a man down the aisle after selecting him to leave an overbooked flight.

A man was forcibly removed from United Airlines Flight 3411 in Chicago, set for Louisville. While we’d normally say that until we have all the information, we have no information at all, the United response tends to confirm the incident as described by passengers.

United Airlines said that, “Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked. After our team looked for volunteers, one customer refused to leave the aircraft voluntarily and law enforcement was asked to come to the gate. We apologize for the overbook situation.”

Passengers from the flight reported that the man was eventually allowed back on the flight, face bloodied and looking confused. Video seems to confirm that, why the situation was unclear.
