Royal Jordanian Airlines takes a dig at United Airlines for dragging a passenger off a flight

If you haven’t heard, United Airlines has had quite the bit of bad publicity in recent times…

A video has surfaced of a passenger being violently dragged off one of their flights after United Airlines overbooked.

However, the cheeky chappies over at Royal Jordanian Airlines decided to troll the American carrier, posting the below to their Twitter account:

What happened exactly?

The United Airlines flight was scheduled to fly from Chicago to Kentucky.

Unfortunately, the flight was overbooked, and nobody volunteered to give up their seats.

A computer was then used to select four passengers at random to leave the plane, one of which refused.

United Airline officials then requested law enforcement to remove the man, who was dragged from his seat, onto the floor and out of the plane.

Here’s the full video of the incident:

“This is an upsetting event to all of us here at United,” United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz told The Guardian.

“I apologize for having to re-accommodate these customers. Our team is moving with a sense of urgency to work with the authorities and conduct our own detailed review of what happened.”
