Anyone shorted United Airlines recently? -- UAL People were more concern about the violence toward paying customers on United Airlines. The flight so talked about was from Chicago to Louisville Kentucky a distance of 300 miles or 4-1/2 hour drive according to Google Maps. Nobody is talking about how Extremely Stupid Management is at United Airlines really is on social media. From what have I read, they bumped paying 4 passengers who boarded on the plane not for 4 other paying customers but for 4 United Airlines Employees who needed to work the next day out of Louisville Kentucky. Technically one can say it is not an overbook situation at all. Instead of paying $3200.00 ($800 x 4) plus Hotels ( which I suppose in Chicago is $100 per day), to bump four paying seated passengers why not charter a Limo to drive the four United Employees down to Louisville? They still would be there well before the next day. Am I missing something in this story??
