United Airlines Gives Less Important Passengers' Seats To Wyclef Jean

united gives passengers seats to wyclef jean

Lameballs!

Passengers who were SUPPOSED to be on a recent United Airlines flight are speaking out because the airline gave Wyclef Jean their seats!

Here's what one of the passengers had to say about it:

"We were at the gate, about to board, and then they took his group and they tore up our boarding passes. We did not receive any compensation, hotel — nothing."

"Wyclef turned around and said, 'What’s happening, what’s going on?' before he boarded. The flight agent told us, 'Political celebrities are treated differently.'"

And here's what a United rep had to say about the incident:

"The customers [who were] denied boarding arrived at the gate within the final 10 minutes before departure."

We are not impressed! If those passengers purchased those seats, then who cares if they arrived at the gate 10 minutes before departure? Obviously they were still letting people onboard, since the more important customer got a seat.

Not cool, United. Not cool AT ALL.

    #Confused, How did they have their boarding passes to tear up, while they were boarding instead of scanning it they ripped it up in front of them- seems odd? What is a "Polictical Celebrity"? Who says that?

    This dude is such a fucking tool. He's like the Kim Kardashian of the music world. He's got no talent, but for some reason has everyone completely fooled. Unreal. Just unreal.

    "Political"? Are you fucking kidding me. United should just change their name. I will never fly them again.

    Re: KarTrash – That's a really good question! Sounds like they either got hung up in security or were maing a connecting flight. we have all had that happen when we are RACING to make a flight. But tearing up boarding passes? I've never heard of that.

    Ok this is stupid on United's part but if they had told Wyclef no then he threw a fit ala Alec Baldwin style then they would slamming United for being jerks to him and everyone would be laughing on late night TV about it. Airlines can not win with celebrities.

    They shouldn't have done that with wyclef however I used to work for united and 10 minutes before is bad anyone would be denied boarding… You need to be at the gate 30 minutes prior to departure no matter what… 10 minutes before flight attendants are doing counts and pilots cut loading… It's just a fact… No reason to get upset… That's why people need to show up early so that if there is a problem they get on… And if someone is lying stand by hey will I've their seat away…

    Re: Turned40 – They usually tear them up… So that you don't have larding passes lying around that can mess up you counts…. If you rip them up there s no confusion…

    This happened to me about 10 years ago on Delta…they didn't know that I had the best lawyers on the planet…
    I still fly free on Delta virtually every Delta flight I take and still laughing at the sheer stupidity of the gate agent who bumped me.

    Re: Esin Emko – I have to say congratulations! I have flown a lot and I have gotten there eventually every time. I missed my grandmothers funeral because of an airline and even when flying in first class was treated like crap a couple of times by Delta, because I was flying into really small airports and they knew I had no other choice. ) ;

    WOW, RE-Run lost a lot of WEIGHT. Keep up the good work, Hey, hey,hey….

    I am sorry but some airlines at some airports close boarding one HOUR before the flight. I am specifically thinking about Cancun and Costa Rica.

    here goes perez again telling us the employees of United Airlines how to do our job. It must be so hard for him to know everything about everybody and everything and hold it in that head of his head
