In light of the Dr. Dao situation, you would think that airlines are hoping to AVOID any kind of similar PR fiasco. This video, which happens to be the #2 trending video on YouTube right now features a man claiming attendants kicked him off a flight with his two small children (ages 1 and 2) due to overcrowding. From the video's description:
Here is a video of Delta airlines booting myself, my wife and my 2 children ages 1 and 2 off delta flight 2222 April 23 from Maui to LAX. They oversold the flight and asked us to give up a seat we purchased for my older son that my younger son was sitting in. You will hear them lie to me numerous times to get my son out of the seat.The end result was we were all kicked off the flight. They then filled our 4 seats with 4 customers that had tickets but no seats. They oversold the flight. When will this all stop? It was midnight in Maui and we had to get a hotel and purchase new tickets the following day.
Should airlines be allowed to do this?
