They didn't oversell. They realized last minute they had to fly crew to another city to staff another flight. Indicative of poor planning and understaffing/overworking existing crew which overall doesn't seem to bode well for United.

Basically they dragged an Asian passenger out of the plane unconsciously because they are oversold by 4. Made me furious bc I'm Asian myself.

In some videos you can hear people say "what are you doing?" "You should be ashamed of yourself" "stop" "this is wrong" etc. but I wouldn't expect anyone to physically stop the police

To continue on to A1, they could have continued to up the voucher amount until someone else volunteered. Everyone has an eventual price that they are willing to get pushed to a later flight, UA just didn't try to find that price. They lost more in PR $s than they would have for a higher voucher amount for 2 people.

Every man for himself. I can't imagine how much courage one needs to stand up to "lawful/legal" airport polices' abuses.

Depends. Do you want consistent delays and no one giving a shit about you or the 1 in a billion chance of you getting dragged off a plane in this manner when you refuse to comply with requests? Think it through.

Agree but do you really really think that American Airlines is anymore humane or is it just that this particular scenario never played out for them?

^ it's pretty shitty that we have to be worried about standing up for something in the moment when it's happening while people don't mind bashing UA/ police on the internet

M1, don't think he's not complying with request. It's just wrong to do this to anyone.

United or AA... same s*** different names..

Can't defend how the airline handled it in the end, but the other 3 passengers complied. I'm guessing that their payday wasn't / won't be as good.

I didn't see this covered in the video so I'm not sure if it actually happened or not but why didn't anyone stand up to UA or police and just saw that poor guy dragged out?

I had my final rounds at Mck on Friday for a senior data science analyst role. 2/3 interviews went well (case interview with the partner went great and the problem solving was good too based on communication feedback). The tech experience interview was average. I couldn’t answer a couple of math code questions about my model, the interviewer said it’s fine let’s move on. I know I could’ve done better but this guy was very technical and I got nervous. My question is is 2/3 good to get an offer?
