Yet one passenger wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat (pictured above) tried to become United Airlines' next victim by causing a disruption on an international flight!

On Sunday, the unidentified passenger boarded flight 87 at Shanghai Pudong International Airport when he refused to comply with the crew's instructions.

He then "became increasingly disruptive" when asked to exit the Newark, New Jersey-bound flight.

According to a United spokesperson, "local law enforcement was called to assist" the situation before the customer "eventually left the aircraft on his own accord."

Travelers had to get off the plane because of the incident, which passenger Clark Gredoña said was due to the "MAGA" supporter thinking he was "entitled to all three seats next to him" because he couldn't get an upgrade!

The fellow passenger explained a Facebook post:

United Airlines cannot, will not catch a break.

In a bid for some good PR at last, the beleaguered airline offered a free trip to Wendy's chicken nugget sensation Carter Wilkerson only to be dragged (pun intended!) online for the attempt.

After a concerted effort to get Wendy's to give him a year's supply of free chicken nuggets, the teen succeeded in beating Ellen DeGeneres' retweet record with an astounding 3.6 million retweets. Thus, he was awarded his "nuggs."

United tweeted at Carter on May 10, offering him the free ride, only to have the gesture beat down by other users.

The mom of two was on her way to Houston with her family when the embarrassing incident occurred. Harper, who has an overactive bladder, had asked to use the bathroom, but the flight attendant then told her she could not get up because the pilot was expecting turbulence.

She recalled:

"[The flight attendant] very rudely told me I was not allowed to get out of my seat."

At which point, Harper told the flight attendant:

"Well, I'm gonna need a cup then to use."

United Airlines & Dr. David Dao Have Reached An 'Amicable Settlement'!

Filed under: Legal MattersTravelControversy

no title

It looks like things have finally leveled off between United Airlines and Dr. David Dao.

According to the 69-year-old's lawyers, Dao and the airline have reached an "amicable settlement" weeks after video of the medical professional being brutally dragged off an overbooked flight went viral.

The incident sparked worldwide outrage — and a procession of airline PR nightmares — leading the injured Dao to file a massive lawsuit against the company with the help of Chicago's top attorneys.

But United has seemingly circumvented the stormy skies of court and landed on a settlement with the wounded traveler — which was reached the same day the airline announced "positive changes to improve the customer experience."

The amount will remain confidential, but we have a feeling Dr. Dao cashed in on quite the first-class pay day. Hopefully, it makes up for being treated like an uncooperative snack cart.

united simon the rabbit cause of death

Simon The Giant Rabbit's cause of death is to stay a mystery.

As we previously reported, United Airlines once again faced a bit of negative PR after a 10-month-old Continental Giant Rabbit died following a flight from London to Chicago. So sad.

While it was first believed that Simon died in the cargo hold of a trans-continental United flight, a spokesperson for the airline defends the rabbit was alive upon landing in the Windy City. According to United rep Charles Hobart, the animal passed away in a pet holding facility at the airport. Is this their way of saying it isn't their fault??

To make matters worse, Simon's cause of death is to remain unsolved as Hobart noted:

United Airlines Introduces New Policy Changes & Will Offer Up To $10K For Passengers To Give Up Their Seats

Filed under: Business BlitzSafetyTravel

United Airlines offers ten new policy changes.

United Airlines is still determined to do right by its customers.

The airline company has released a list of ten policy changes that should hopefully keep violent incidents like Dr. David Dao's from ever happening again.

Related: Simon The Giant Rabbit Died On An United Flight

A statement on the company website read:

"The changes are the result of United's thorough examination of its policies and procedures, and commitment to take action, in the wake of the forced removal of a customer aboard United Express Flight 3411 on April 9."

We're glad they're taking full responsibility now after their initial shaky reaction to the whole ordeal. CEO Oscar Munoz's blaming of the passenger was total BS!

Now, the airline will only remove passengers if there is a safety or security issue, ensure crew members are booked onto the flight at least an hour before departure, work to reduce overbooking, and offer up to $10K to entice passengers to give up their seats if necessary.

It sucks that a man had to suffer a concussion, break his nose, and lose two front teeth for these policy changes to take place, but we suppose it's better late than never.

Check out the full list of changes (below):
