Since it belongs here,more than on the Science board:

Hmm…on second thought, maybe "News of the Weird". . .

For United I think it's going to end up on the Litigation board.

They say, "Any news is good news." I wonder if they thought of this incident when they said that?

And we have the reaction of United's CEO :

Loved the Southwest Airlines spoof: "We beat the competition. Not you."

Just wondering how vindictive United will be. Will people making comments suddenly find themselves on No Fly lists?

United seem to court bad publicity. Remember this one?

End of the day, the main issue for me is that airlines seem to be a law unto themselves and the paying customers have no rights . Overbooking should be banned by law and the airlines should be made far more accountable for their actions. They can turf you off a plane for reasons that would be laughable anywhere else – and do.

Or auction the refund. Offering me $800 USD – after I had to scramble to find a ticket under $800 USD – is no incentive. Start the bidding at $1,000 USD and see how long it takes for people to say "bump me!"

Otherwise, find another flight for your four employees.

Or maybe roll them into the checked baggage…and charge them $50 USD each way for the privilege, just like you do with my luggage.

Offer me $1,350.00 USD, a hotel room by the airport, a voucher for meals and fly me out the next day and I'm yours!

Apparently you have to watch out for those vouchers they offer, they can come in denominations of say $50 USD and you're limited to using only some of them on a single purchase, which has to be a regularly priced fare. And they expire.
