The whole concept of overbooking a flight is pretty silly. I mean if you buy a seat on a plane, you fully expect there to be room for you. How the hell is a flight overbooked in the first place?

In the event that a flight IS overbooked however, you would expect that they’d at least want to keep the doctor on board.
Not on this United Airlines flight from Chicago to Louisville, apparently:

Is he dead? I think he’s dead. The person who filmed that footage says:
The doctor needed to work at the hospital the next day, so he refused to ‘volunteer,’ United decided to use force on doctor.
United themselves have been very apologetic (not):
Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked. After our team looked for volunteers, one customer refused to leave the aircraft voluntarily and law enforcement was asked to come to the gate.
We apologize for the overbook situation. Further details on the removed customer should be directed to authorities.
What can you do about it really? Ever since 9/11 it’s pretty much standard to treat airline passengers like shit. Maybe the doctor was being difficult with the crew, but still pretty horrific seeing him dragged out of there like a child refusing to leave the playground. Not to mention he was already in his seat, so he basically got bumped for someone who got on the flight after him? Terrible luck that is.
