United Airline Officer Sparked Outrage As He Drags An Asian Off Overbooked Flight


Akwa una ahuna eh. This white people can be cruel most of the time. United Airlines has sparked an outrage on Monday for how its security officials physically dragged off a passenger from its overbooked flight. Videos posted online by other passengers showed a man, who appeared to be Asian dragged dwon the aisle on his back screaming as officers yanked him from his seat on United Flight 3411 before it departed from Chicago O’Hare International Airport to Louisville, Kentucky, on Sunday.

The incident sparked outrage on social media and the video has already gone viral.

According to Reports, in a letter circulated to employees, United Chief Executive Officer Oscar Munoz did not apologise for the way the passenger was handled, writing that the passenger had “defied” security officers. Munoz said there are lessons the company can learn from this situation, though he impressed that he “emphatically” stands behind his employees.

“We sought volunteers and then followed our involuntary denial of boarding process (including offering up to $1,000 in compensation),” Munoz wrote. “When we approached one of these passengers to explain apologetically that he was being denied boarding, he raised his voice and refused to comply with crew member instructions.”

A statement by the Chicago Department of Aviation said one of the officers did not follow protocol adding that he had been placed on leave pending a review for actions not condoned by the department. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) said it was reviewing whether United complied with overbook rules that require airlines to set guidelines on how passengers are denied boarding if they do not volunteer to give up their seats.

Video of the incident posted by Twitter user @Tyler_Bridges shows three security officers hovering over the seated passenger before dragging him to the floor.

Bridges said the man told staff of the airline that he was a doctor and had to return home to his patients. The airline said it had asked for volunteers to leave because additional flight crew needed to get to Louisville.
