Those were CPD officers?  I thought they were just airport/airline security staff?

From what I understand the contract says United can keep you from boarding the plane if they've overbooked.  They let this guy board the plane so would that put United in violation of that part of the contract?

Also, the flight wasn't overbooked.  They wanted the seats for their own staff.  Isn't that a different situation?

And I guess they offered around $800 to people to get off the flight and go on a later one.  The cap for this type of offer is about $1,350.  They could have upped their offer but were trying to be stingy about that too.

Even if this doctor is a dick I hope he sues and gets bucket loads of money from United becuase in this instance they were the bigger dicks.

If this drags on there'll be more opportunities.

dragging on would be a weird twist of ironic fate

He's going to sue, apparently.  Was threatened with handcuffs when he was told he'd have to give up his first class seat (that he paid full price for) so they could seat a "higher priority" customer.
