United Airlines finds itself it in the news again for kicking off some more passengers from one of their planes. This news comes after United Airlines Passenger Dragged Off Plane Due To Oversell as two passengers switched their seats to a few rows up. The next thing they know they too were being kicked off the plane on their way to their destination wedding.
Per the NY Daily News,
A Utah man and his fiancée say a U.S. Marshal booted them Saturday from a Houston flight en route to their Costa Rica wedding after they changed seats without permission — the latest in a string of negative headlines for the bedeviled company.
Michael Hohl and Amber Maxwell — whose destination wedding is still slated for Thursday — boarded flight no. 1737 along with friends to find a napping man sprawled across their assigned seats, 24B and 24C, they told local TV affiliate KHOU. They relocated to empty seats three rows up, 21B and 21C, with Hohl telling the outlet they were “simply in an economy row a few rows above our economy seat” on the apparently half-full flight.
Hohl claims that after a flight attendant told them to return to their assigned seats, the couple did — only to be told to leave by a marshal who boarded the plane. The soon-to-be bride and groom agreed to deplane without incident, according to the report. “They said that we were being disorderly and a hazard to the rest of the flight, to the safety of the other customers,” Hohl said.
For one thing you could say at least they weren’t dragged off the plane and agreed to cooperate with the authorities.
