FLASHBACK: United Airlines Kicked Woman Out Of Seat When Pakistani Men Said They Couldn’t Sit By A Woman

The United Airlines CEO was forced to apologize for a “horrible event” in which a passenger was videoed being dragged off the plane.

The Washington Post reports:

After two days conflicting corporate statements, falling stocks and swelling outrage, United Airlines entered full-scale mea culpa mode Tuesday afternoon, as its chief executive announced an internal investigation into a Sunday-evening flight in which a man was dragged violently from his seat so a crew member could have it.

“I continue to be disturbed by what happened on this flight,” United chief executive Oscar Munoz wrote in a statement.

“I deeply apologize to the customer forcibly removed and to all the customers aboard. No one should ever be mistreated this way.”

But this isn’t the first time United Airlines has made a questionable decision about seating on their planes.

Yes, they did!

The Independent reported at the time:

A United Airlines passenger has complained of discrimination after she was moved to make way for two “Pakistani monks” who did not want to sit next to a woman.

Mary Campos was leaving California on a plane bound for Houston when a member of the gate staff reportedly informed her that her pre-booked seat had been changed.

“I don’t know how to tell you this,” he said.
