New Video Shows United Airlines Passenger Moments Before Forced Removal: ‘I Am Not Going!’

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – JULY 08: United Airlines planes sit on the tarmac at San Francisco International Airport on July 8, 2015 in San Francisco, California.

Newly released footage shows United Airlines passenger David Dao arguing with law enforcement before they forcibly removed him from a flight.

“I won’t go,” Dao is shown telling the officers trying to remove him from the flight. “I am a physician, and have to get to work tomorrow at 8:00”

“I am not going,” he subsequently says more forcefully, visibly frustrated. “I am not going!”

Ultimately, as shown in other videos, Dao does go; law enforcement drags him down the aisle.

United Airlines initially said in an email to employees that Dao was acting “disruptive and belligerent,” and had to be forced off the plane. The company’s CEO later apologized for the incident and the company will now refund the airfare of everyone on the flight.

Three officers from the Chicago Department of Aviation have been placed on administrative leave following the incident, and a review into is ongoing.

“No one wanted to volunteer to get off the plane because the next flight wasn’t until 2 p.m. the next day, which is almost a full 24 hours later,” said Bridges, who added that the airline selected which flyers to eject “based on an internal algorithm that weighs in … who was the last to purchase.”
Bridges said the unidentified passenger was told he had to leave, but the man refused to do so.

“He said he was a doctor, he had patients he had to see in the morning, he wasn’t going to get off the plane,” Bridges recounted, “and the gate agent was like, ‘You have to get off the plane. If you don’t get off, we’ll call in security.’ And he was like, ‘Fine, call security, I’m not getting off the plane.’”

Bridges said the man wasn’t being violent with security and police officers who responded, but did say he was “kind of [flailing] his arms and trying to keep them away from him and ultimately they had to use the force, as you can see in the video.”

The shocked passengers berated United employees who boarded the plane in the ejected flyers’ place.

Late Monday, United CEO Oscar Munoz issued a statement apologizing for having to “re-accommodate these customers.”

“Does that look like re-accommodation to you?” Carlson asked. “There’s no mention of the fact that this guy is bloody and unconscious. That’s re-accommodation, according to United Airlines.”


United Criticized Over Passenger Dragged From Plane

By THE NEW YORK TIMES | Apr. 10, 2017 | 0:51  After facing a backlash, the airline apologized for its treatment of the passenger.

The disturbing scene captured on cellphone videos by United Airlines passengers on Sunday went beyond the typical nightmares of travelers on an overbooked flight.

An unidentified man who refused to be bumped from a plane screamed as a security officer wrestled him out of his seat and dragged him down the aisle by his arms. His glasses slid down his face, and his shirt rose above his midriff as uniformed officers followed.

At least two passengers documented the physical confrontation and the man’s anguished protests, and their videos spread rapidly online on Monday as people criticized the airline’s tactics. A security officer involved in the episode has been placed on leave, the authorities said, and the federal Transportation Department is investigating whether the airline complied with rules regarding overbooking.

Three officers from the Chicago Department of Aviation have been placed on administrative leave following the incident, and a review into is ongoing.

Tyler Bridges, a passenger on Sunday’s flight who posted a video to Twitter, said in a telephone interview on Monday that “it felt like something the world needed to see.”

The shocking scene raised questions about the common practice of overbooking and how far airlines will go to sell all of their seats. Particularly annoying, Mr. Bridges said, was that the airline was looking for extra seats for some of its employees. Source: NYTimes
