lol MagsJy, can you narrow that down a bit?
Yeah, now I've read it. Rule 21 regarding refusal to transport does not actually include anything that would fall under this situation, that is, to make space for UA employees:Kriswest wrote:Yea but, how many of us actually read the tickets we buy? The fine print is more often than not, ignored. I think I would rather take a train or drive. Buses can be pretty nasty as well.

And this was not an overbooking situation, either. However, reading about this "doctor's" history, I wonder if the computer algorithm also might have included previous felonies, because apparently this doctor is no angel, either. http://nypost.com/2017/04/11/doctor-dra ... s-for-sex/
Oversold Flight means a flight where there are more Passengers holding valid confirmed Tickets that check-in for the flight within the prescribed check-in time than there are available seats.
The reason I brought it up is because someone mentioned of an incident which supposedly happened some years ago with the airline (It is not verified and needs to be confirmed but it does raise some interesting questions). Some years back, UA needed to get a certain passenger off the plane because he had some problems with the law (I do not know specifics) so the airline, unbeknownst to the rest of the people at the time, decided to have an "overbooking" situation in order to get him off the plane, which it did. The flight was not technically "overbooked" as well, so one may think that the "overbooking" situation is used by airline for other reasons. In that particular case it was supposedly done for safety and security reasons. So, I am wondering if the computer algorithm which selects at random, is not all that random after all. Dr. Dao had six previous felony charges so could it be that the airline was aware of his criminal history before hand and it had something to do with random selection? (this could also bring the safety and security issue into play as justification)Carleas wrote:I'm a little bewildered by the reporting on the doctor's history, it seems entirely irrelevant to the interpretation of the contract between him and United.

The least you'll get out of it is a sample of what you can do, a measure of how well you can perform even without the passion.
