Ever since United Airlines had a passenger brutally beaten and dragged off the "overbooked" plane to make room for their own personnel, they've been in PR hell.

Late night TV isn't quite ready to move on from United Airlines' recent controversy.

Case in point, Jimmy Kimmel dropped a new "ad" for the scandalized airline which featured their (faux) celebrity spokesperson getting bumped à la the Dr. David Dao scandal. Man, oh man!

Of course, Mr. Kimmel wasn't too worked up as the victim in this video was none other than Matt Damon (AKA the host's longtime nemesis). HIGHlarious!

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.

It's truly a small price to pay…

As we reported, United Airlines changed its overbooking policy after the company was BLASTED on social media for forcibly dragging Dr. David Dao off a crowded flight.

According to new rules, the airline can only deplane a passenger if it's absolutely imperative that a crew member make the flight in order to work another flight AND if he or she arrives an hour before boarding.

In order to avoid a PR nightmare like United, Delta Air Lines recently rectified its policies, and you can make some serious dough if you're willing to give up your seat!

On Friday, the Associated Press obtained a memo where officials said Delta gate agents can offer up to $2,000 (originally from $800), and supervisors can offer up to $9,950 (from $1,350) to a willing passenger.

Last year, DAL paid more money to bumped travelers than any other airline.

Delta FTW!

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:
