It's like United Airlines said, "Yeah, we don't want people to fly on our airlines anymore.  What can we do to ensure our business utterly fails?".  I mean, there's so much wrong here:

1) They overbooked to begin with.

2) They end up giving their own employees preferential treatment by kicking off passengers for them.

3) The compensation for the delay would be $400 which is nothing when it comes to rebooking plane tickets.  It was upped to $800 and a hotel room, but still...

4) They end up beating up some old dude and dragging him out of the plane.

5) The dude was a doctor who was on his way to help sick people.

Here's some info in regards what airlines are supposed to offer you based under federal guidelines.

They really need to understand the concept of "volunteers."

It seems to be the Asian definition of the word.

Maybe.  All I know is that Asian bosses love "volunteering" people.

This entire situation is shockingly unreasonable.

I don't even know anymore.

It's almost as if we need a real life 40k God-Emperor at this point.

The memes for this have been epic.

4) They end up beating up some old dude and dragging him out of the plane.

5) The dude was a doctor who was on his way to help sick people.

Yeah, could they have picked a more sympathetic victim? Were there no baskets of puppies and kittens to torture?
