    Record everything.. Fight the powers legally after the fact if you feel strongly about being wronged.. Film shows you were asked to exit the plane after you paid your fair and boarded..

    Yes you didn't get man handled but you still have the entire process on record.. Can legally make a complaint with proof now of what transpired... Always catch it on recorder if you can... It's never a bad idea...

    PS. Don't swear to God Kraken either it's good Friday ...

    here's my question...
    If you bought a Samsung mobile and the battery caught fire do you sue the battery company or Samsung..
    If you bought a Toyota and the airbag won't implore would you sue the airbag company or Toyota...
    United was dead meat... no matter how you slice it.. I rest my case...

    Remember coming to houston to go to wedding. Now it was in january. In ohio it was 10 degrees but in houston it was 75. Going back home i have on winter coat and a cossack faux fur hat.I'm sweating like a prego sistah in the congo. So two of houstons airport cops. They are putting me thru the ringer why am I wearing this big coat in texas. Told them I was going home to ohio and was easier to wear my coat then caarry it. Then he asks why am I sweating. anyway I had this mans cache that I kept my checkbook, cash,travelers checks and passport. This cop goes aha what is this when he found it in a hidden pocket in my coat. I explain what it is. I am getting close to missing my plane. Then I remember my uncle was in charge of immigration at iah. He was the guy during the first gulf war they drop him and his squad in the sand a week b4 we went into there. Needless to say he has always been a little crazy. So finally I say let me talk to my uncle. The cop says who is your uncle. I tell them his name . They say he isn't you uncle. I just laughed. The cop says he is black. I said he is puerto rican and he going to love hearing this.So they radio him and they said there is a guy saying he is your nephew. So I asked him where did you get these clowns? He says fat boy because i was a chubby kid and he has always called me that. You should of seen these want to be's. I said this guy said you were african. If you ever want to piss off a puerto rican tell them they are from africa.

    United definitely did some things wrong here, but this guy is also a kunt. A perfect storm of stupidity and angle shooting

    Looks like this is exactly what happened with the Dortmund bus bombing

    Ka-Ching! United got it the American way.

    They had to try and put this behind them as fast as possible.
    (Not for Nuthin' that they remain in the lowest tier of airlines.)

    No way. $3 Million ain't even worth most major lawyer's time. This was a $20 million case minimum. $8M for the Law firm + $12M for the Dr.

    If United would have been stubborn and took it to trial it would have jumped to $80 - $100 million.

    In February, the city of Milwaukee paid out $3.3 million for cops shooting and killing an unarmed teen. There is zero chance this guy got $3 million for a bump on the head and some embarassment on social media. I'd be surprised if it was in the 7 figures.
