| Filed under: TravelViral: News

United Airlines couple kicked off flight.

Oh, United Airlines, you really can't afford anymore mishaps.

In the wake of the David Dao dragging incident, United should really be on its best behavior, but that still doesn't seem to be the case.

In the latest incident, a bride and groom (pictured above) allege they were kicked off the plane on the way to their wedding in Costa Rica.

According to Michael Hohl, the groom, he and fiancée Amber Maxwell were the last to board the plane and saw a man sprawled across their seats (24 B and C) napping when they arrived. Not wishing to disturb him they sat a few rows ahead of their assigned seats because the plane was only half-full and had plenty of empty rows.

United Airlines Changes Its Overbooking Policy!

| Filed under: TravelViral: News

United Airlines changes its overbooking policy.

Little by little, they're making progress.

It was announced Friday that United Airlines has made changes to its overbooking policy as it relates to employees.

Now, a passenger can only be removed to accommodate a United crew member if it's absolutely imperative that the crew member make the flight in order to work another flight AND if the crew member arrives an hour before boarding.

In this way, passengers who have already been seated won't have to be removed. Instead, passengers might be kept from boarding at the gate or earlier.

TMZ reports there have also been some emails being exchanged today between higher-ups.

In one email, a Senior VP of In-Flight Service wrote:

Move Over, United — American Airlines Gets Hit With A Lawsuit Over Alleged Racist Practices!

There's plenty of room in the skies for airline controversies!

American Airlines temporarily stole the spotlight from United after a pastor claimed he was blocked from a flight just because he's Korean.

TMZ reports Benny Shin filed a lawsuit against AA on Thursday, just a few hours after the injured Dr. David Dao's lawyers held a press conference announcing he would probably be filing a mega lawsuit against United.

Not the best week for airlines… or travel in general.

The 75-year-old alleges he was waiting to board a flight from Dallas to Corpus Christi in June 2016 when the gate agent refused to let him on the plane — even though he paid for his flight and had a seat assignment.

According to the documents, Shin says "5-7 white passengers behind him" were allowed on board.

While American did give him a voucher for a next day flight, Shin says the experience left him feeling humiliated, embarrassed, and scared. He plans to sue for at least $6 million.

We don't have to wonder what might have happened if the passenger refused to be re-accommodated to a later flight.

United Airlines Passenger Stung By A Scorpion That Fell From An Overhead Bin!

United Airlines is just crawling in controversy this week!

The airline is flying a stormy sky of viral outrage after violently dragging a passenger off of an overbooked flight.

Now, another passenger has felt the sting of the company's incompetency… by literally getting stung by a scorpion during his flight!

Richard Bell was on a flight from Houston to Calgary on Sunday when a scorpion reportedly fell from an overhead bin and landed right onto his head!

The Canadian traveler took the honey-colored arachnid from his hair and dropped it onto his tray. When he picked it up again, the scorpion stung him — which, according to Bell, "felt like a wasp sting."

The animal, which was likely a stowaway in someone's luggage, was then stomped on by another passenger before the remains were thrown into a toilet.

The flight crew contacted emergency personnel on the ground for medical advice.

EMS officials came aboard when the plane landed in Calgary, though Bell declined medical treatment and showed "no signs of distress," according to a spokesperson.

There's nothing like a scorpion sting to ruin the end of your vacation. But we're sure other United passengers would much prefer being attacked by a rogue creature than airport personnel.
