So much for the "Random Pick" shenanigans. From NYC United covers the most Skiing destinations, and I've been a long time MileagePlus member. But I'll try my very best to stop flying them going forwards.
Passenger: The man initially volunteered to leave
After passengers already boarded the plane, United said it needed to clear some seats because four members of another flight crew needed to sit down. If those crew members didn't get on board, a United spokeswoman said, their flight would have been canceled.
But Dao agreed to get off the plane, passenger Jayse Anspach said.
"Him and his wife, they volunteered initially," Anspach said. "But once they found out that the next flight wasn't until (Monday) at 2:30 p.m., he said, 'I can't do that. I gotta be at work.' So he sat back down."
The harder the officers tried to get the man to leave, the harder the man insisted he stay.
"He was very emphatic: 'I can't be late. I'm a doctor. I've got to be there tomorrow,' " Anspach recalled.
His pleas didn't work. Moments later, he was being dragged down the aisle. At one point, passengers said, Dao hit his head on an armrest. Video shows blood streaming from his mouth.
