To the surprise of no one, United Airlines is currently experiencing a massive stock nosedive after a Chicago airport security officer forcibly and bloodily dragged a 70 year old doctor off a plane for refusing to leave an overbooked flight from Chicago to Louisville.
United’s CEO offered a statement following the events, apologizing for having to “re-accomodate” the customer.
Needless to say, his whole thing is causing a lot of people to “re-accomodate” the way they view United Airlines.
United Airlines new slogan: “Fly the friendly skies once you get off the scary ground.”

Look on the bright side, United Airlines. After this incident, you’ll never have to worry about a flight being overbooked again.
