United Airlines stock is PLUMMETING. 3.7% equating to 380 million dollars, this is how you majorly fuck up a company.

TL;DW: United Airlines overbooks on a flight, decides to kick paying customers off the flight for their employees, a doctor who has to see patients in the morning refuses, and they beat the man and forcibly drag off the plane.

GG United, should've just stayed with breaking musical instruments.

We knew the world would not be the same.
A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita.
Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty
and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says,
"Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.."
I suppose we all thought that one way or another.

I wouldn't feel too bad about their stocks falling after this pitiful response from the CEO.



fuck 'em
Seems like a pretty reasonable response. What exactly do you expect him to do? Self flagellate himself in front of the passenger?

Maybe say something acknowledging that one of his paying customers was assaulted, rather than applaud himself for re-accommodation which, you know, is the reason for this mess.
I didn't derive that from his statement at all. Just seemed like a cookie cutter response a CEO would provide after a serious incident within the organisation. I think you're looking too much into it.

the only honorable thing for him to do is kill himself. he needed to do that on virtue of being a labor exploiting piece of shit but signing off on state violence doubles that shit down.

You will find out who you are not a thousand times, before you ever discover who you are. I hope you find peace in yourself and learn to love instead of hate.
Like Das I get the impression that he didn't communicate well that he was a doctor, I think upon hearing this the staff would have asked others.

The Rage....
the fact that airlines can overbook planes on purpose sickens me. the employees can go fuck themselves, they can catch the next flight, those people paid and should be expected to go to their destinations without any repercussions. in this case, no one should be kicked off just because of an error in booking.

Okay
picture the scenario

Do we inconvenience four people here on this one flight because we fucked up, or do we inconvenience an entire flight elsewhere because four pilots that need transferred to Louisville are stuck in Chicago?

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
re-accommodate.
lol

Just like Bungie re-accommodated everyone to Sep7 for not playing Destiny.
He had a confirmed reserved seat too. Their company policy does not say that an employee gets priority over a confirmed passenger.

It's a statistically sound practise and pretty much never backfires like this, though.

OT: a dude with a gun hands me $800 and tells me to catch the next flight? You got it bro.

Overbooking is part of what makes or breaks regional routes. There's a lot of revenue in it and regionals need a lot more money to operate than international or coast-to-coast nonstop flights because upwards of six cycles a day really adds up fast on your limited life components.  It's a bitch and really annoying to get bumped because of it, but it's just a thing that has to be in the airline industry unless you want to see even higher ticket prices.

JetBlue specifically gets around it by specifically planning their routes in ways that avoid being close behind what might be inbound connecting flights and then also being absolutely unaccommodating in every single other way and offering no flexibility on missed, postponed, or extensively delayed flights, be they your fault or the fault of your previous flight running late.

They also seem to have problems maintaining their A321 fleet.
