Take note! United Airlines doesn’t give a FUCK about its passengers!
After overbooking a flight by four people, United Airlines had a doctor forcibly removed by law enforcement who appeared to knock him out and then DRAGGED him down the aisle as horrified passengers looked on.
The video, posted Sunday on Facebook, is seriously disturbing and if the airline doesn’t get sued, it’ll be a miracle!
Watch the extremely horrifying clip (below):
Please share this video. We are on this flight. United airlines overbooked the flight. They randomly selected people to kick off so their standby crew could have a seat. This man is a doctor and has to be at the hospital in the morning. He did not want to get off. We are all shaky and so disgusted. #unitedairways

One of the flight’s passengers, Audra Bridges, spoke to the Courier-Journal and said that four people were told they would have to give up their seats to United personnel who needed to be in Louisville on Monday. When nobody volunteered to give up their seats, they were told people would be chosen at random to be removed from the flight.
One of the randomly chosen people turned out to be a doctor who refused to give up his seat because he had patients to tend to the very next day.
That’s when three security guards were called in to forcibly remove the man from the flight, doing so in the most disgusting and, frankly, probably illegal manner.
Another passenger, Jayse D. Anspach, tweeted about the incident:
So unbelievably FUCKED UP!!! We hope he sues the airline for all it’s worth!!!
The poor man was later filmed returning to his seat and saying several times, “I have to go home.”
When reached for comment by Buzzfeed, the airline had this generic response:
“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. Further details on the removed customer should be directed to authorities.”
We guess they’re contacting their lawyers right about now!
We are honestly so disturbed. We can’t believe our own eyes!
We hope that doctor and his family are okay. And remember, don’t fly United!!!
