The sad news, his luggage probably made it.
Jerk-lovers everywhere rejoiced with the news United Airlines had dragged a seated passenger off one of their jets to make room for crew members needed at other airports. So many jerk targets. So little time. So let us offer this simple rule for all modern airlines – and also those few “Morlock” airlines. If a paying passenger with a ticket has boarded a plane and is in his or her seat – leave him or her the hell alone. We understand the need to ferry crew members to move air traffic, but if you need the seat, make the decision BEFORE the ticket-holder boards the plane and checks a bag. Otherwise, the burden’s on you to find a way to get crews where they are needed. Perhaps FEDEX could help you figure this out.
