This scene was literally going through my head as I was being bumped at the ticket counter. And the crazy thing was I could have got to where I was going much faster by driving to Dallas to take another Delta flight, but I was required to take the exact same route to my destination or I would lose my ticket home as well. At the very least they could be a little more flexible to those that get bumped.

And to boot, it was the first time I had flown out of Tulsa since they quit running the shuttles out to the parking lot so I was already pissed I waiting out there and then had to hoof it inside with my bags. A little note at the bus stop would have been nice.


Oh, no...!!   Don't tell me you didn't use Fine Parking..!!??

Everyone on the plane has a camera in their hand, yet they still lie on the police report?


The Chicago aviation officers who forcibly removed a passenger from a United Airlines flight filed reports saying the traveler was “aggressive” when responding to requests to give up his seat and flailed his arms while fighting with officers.

The reports, released Monday in response to Freedom of Information Act requests by the Los Angeles Times and others, contradict videos of the incident caught by fellow passengers on their cellphones and viewed by millions of people worldwide.

In the incident reports, two of the officers blame Dao for his injuries, saying the passenger’s flailing motions made the officers lose their grip on him, causing him to fall face first into the armrest of a nearby seat.

Yeah.   According to the story I read, she did that to herself.   They warned her of the consequences of her statements several times before they called the cops to have her pulled off.
