    I have flown United a few times and have found them to be awful.

    Fortunately this has never happened to me:

    They asked for volunteers, he refused to volunteer. I think they don't know what volunteer means.

    Technically they asked for volunteers and nobody volunteered, so they picked two couples at random and this guy refused to get off because he's a doctor and had patients to see the next morning.

    Still, it's disgusting.

    United have been wank for ages. Pretty good service for them in that video.

    I am shocked at all the other passengers just whipping out their phones and filming. Yeah that is some good resistance there. Bunch of fucking cowards.

    Jumping in with unwarranted physical resistance (assaulting a police officer) is the last thing you want to do in the US, especially if you're literally sat in your seat waiting to fly to another part of the world.

    Yeah attacking the airport security and police would have made all the difference, they'd have respected your sense of righteousness right there and seen the error of their ways. Probably upgrade the whole flight to first class and issued blowjob vouchers as a thank you

    Well the flight was Chicago to Louisiana i think.

    Still, point stands. Don't fuck with the police in the US as they can obviously fuck you up more.

    Yeah that does piss me off, an all too common reaction these days, the camera phone/must post this on Facebook generation.
    Really? It pisses you off that a public record of companies/officials/joe bloggs behaving like asshats exists and can be used to prove said behaviour and actually get something done about it?

    I'd film it, no hesitation. I'd certainly do that looooong before I mouthed off to an armed American policeman at least.

    I know it was an internal flight, but it's still another part of the planet that they were trying to get to that they obviously wanted to get to asap.

    I think the filming is good. Gets the issue raised.

    The best you can do there is document. A phone camera is fairly decent at that

    I swore I'd never fly united again after my experience a few years back (nothing on this obviously). They're awful.

    That's where PES' proposed ShitList would help but will Craigy implement it?

    No, for reasons I don't understand.

    United lost my bag and took 3 days to deliver it to me. Fortunately all that was in it was the tent I needed for staying on a desert dig site an hour from any town, so no rush yeah guys, I'll just hang out in the sub-zero desert nights in a borrowed sleeping bag while these scorpions run around my head.

    The problem is, all american airlines are shit in my experience. I used to have to fly american for work - thankfully that's no longer the case and i get free booze again.

    What, really? I would LOVe people to film it, it's all evidence and they will hopefully receive tens of thousands in compensation.

    What do you want the other passengers to do? It is the police carrying them off the plane, try and stop the police? The most sensible thing was to film it.

    To be fair, none of the people dragging him off the plane actually work for United

    The fact you have to pay for everything in the United Business lounge is one of my grievances with them.
