United Airlines To Be Flogged In Congress

United Airlines To Be Flogged In Congress

This time it was the horrendous incident on a United Airlines plane that was about to fly from Chicago to Louisville, Kentucky, a distance of under 500 kilometres.

LONDON (CNNMoney) - The boss of Emirates has slammed United Airlines over the forcible removal of a passenger from a flight last week. The cuts come in the wake of the Trump administration's attempted visa restrictions, and the ban on carrying on large electronic devices on flights from certain Middle Eastern countries, including the United Arab Emirates. The flight had been overbooked, as the airline was trying to make room for four crew members from a sister airline.

Now, United is using a pre-flight buffer against similar overbooking incidents. "They should have gone up higher. But to just randomly say, "You're getting off the plane", that was bad".

The page, which the same passenger confirms he did not see when checking into a different United flight this past Sunday, asks "Are you interested in possibly taking a different flight in exchange for a travel certificate", helping the airline to identify which passengers have flexible travel plans and are therefore more amenable to being bumped to another flight if theirs is overbooked.

Labour supporters boo journalist at Corbyn speech
The SNP wants to break up the United Kingdom ; it has no interest in making it work better. One said: "He is the most powerful Labour politician in the country".

House Bill 4034, or the Airline Passenger Protection Act, would prohibit any "employee or contractor of this State or any unit of local government in this State" from "involuntarily remov [ing] a passenger from an aircraft by force when that passenger is seated in a seat confirmed by a valid paid or awarded ticket unless: (1) the passenger has committed a breach of the peace; (2) the passenger presents a danger to himself or herself or others; or (3) a public emergency exists".

One thing we haven't seen mentioned is the fact that it's just 297 miles from Chicago to Louisville, and the trip by auto can be made in 4 1/2 hours.

As Mr. Trump mentioned, even he would give up his seat if an airline's offer were sufficiently generous. We wonder whether the new United policy might include requiring late-arriving flight crews to take a limo to such a relatively near airfield.
