CHICAGO (AP) — Video shows three security officials dragging a passenger from a United Airlines flight at a Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.

The (Louisville) Courier-Journal reports a United representative confirmed Sunday night that a person was removed from Flight 3411 to Louisville, Kentucky, saying it was “overbooked.”

Passenger Audra D. Bridges posted the video on Facebook. It shows the guards grabbing then dragging the passenger down the aisle. Screaming is heard and other passengers say “Oh my God” and “Look at what you did to him.”

United said airline representatives chose four passengers at random when no volunteers agreed to leave the overbooked flight. They requested law enforcement assistance when one of them refused to leave.

Bridges says United asked for four passengers to relinquish their seats for airline employees on stand-by. Oscar Munoz, United’s CEO has since responded, saying the passenger was ‘belligerent and disruptive,” and that he stands behind his employees.

  1. This Airline (United) should be boycotted. How you treat a paying customer like that. Why not the person(s) that over book the flight be drag? they are the reason for this conflict. NOT THE PASSENGER.

    The white people that were chosen to fly stand-by departed the plane peacefully. Not bro-bro. Ah hell to the Naw.

        Yep…that pathetic, bug-eyed, buck-dancing self-hater was in such a hurry to post negative B.S. about Black men he didn’t even wait to let the story play out. That’s why the idiot thought the man was Black. he wanted him to be Black! Probably a racist white troll I’m betting.

  3. One more thing. I’ve been at the gate and the staff had announced they were over-booked and ask if anyone wanted to give up their seat for “perks”. Most times they get takers or people who are not in a rush and don’t mind being on stand-by. I’ve never seen it where they actually boarded EVERYONE who bought a ticket knowing they were over-booked. That doesn’t sound logical, they wouldn’t have enough seats. Please tell me this story is not right as written, there has to be more.

      Sorry, cuz, they let everyone board. If they had upped the anti, someone would have eventually given up their seat. Upping the ante would have been cheaper than what they are going to pay in lawyer fees to defend the lawsuit that I am sure will follow.

      They simply decided at the last minute that they had to get 4 employees on that plane. I certainly hope this Asian Doctor has a good Attorney, I’m sure they’re lining up to take his case.

  4. I don’t think I will ever book a flight with United Airlines if they choose to treat their passengers this way!!!!!!!

    SMH!!!!!!
