#NewUnitedAirlinesMotto is trending on Twitter following surfaced videos in which a man was forcibly dragged off an “overbooked” flight.
People created new slogans for the company, which include “United We Purge,” “Not Enough Seating? Time for a Beating!” and “Our Service Will Knock You Out.”
“#UnitedAirlines announced today they R renaming their mileage program from ‘frequent flyer’ to ‘frequent survivor,'” read one slogan pitch.
“We put the hospital in hospitality,” read another.
A video posted by Audra D. Bridges went viral early Sunday night in which security agents drag a screaming passenger from the overbooked flight. A United spokesperson told TheWrap in an email Monday morning that the passenger had been taken off the flight because it was overbooked.
“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,” the statement read. “We apologize for the overbook situation. Further details on the removed customer should be directed to authorities.”
The Chicago Police also released a statement in which they stated that a “69-year-old male Asian airline passenger became irate after he was asked to disembark from a flight that was oversold. The passenger in question began yelling to voice his displeasure, at which point Aviation Police were summoned.”
In a statement, United CEO Muniz said, “I apologize for having to re-accommodate these customers. Our team is moving with a sense of urgency to work with authorities and conduct our own detailed review of what happened.”
The incident comes two weeks after United Airlines prevented two 10-year-old girls from boarding a flight because they were wearing leggings.
