Was that doctor dragged off the United Airlines flight because he was Asian? Many in China think so. (BBM)

The Washingoton Post  By Simon Denyer  April 11 at 2:34 AM  Comments 603

BEIJING — News that a passenger was forcibly dragged off a United Airlines plane has gone viral all over the world, but in China the outrage has been fueled by one uncomfortable fact: The doctor who was pulled off the plane, first screaming and then bleeding, appeared to be of Asian origin and was overheard complaining that this might have been a factor in his treatment.  Read more...

United Airlines faces mounting pressure over hospitalized passenger

Snipped

 

On Chinese social media, the incident attracted the attention of more than 480 million users on Weibo, China's Twitter-like platform.

United has about 20 percent of total U.S.-China airline traffic and has a partnership with Air China, the country's third-largest airline, according to analysts. It flies to more Chinese cities than any other U.S. carrier. Last year, United added nonstop flights from San Francisco to Hangzhou, its fifth destination in mainland China.

David Dao, Doctor Dragged Off Plane, Files Court Papers Demanding United Airlines Preserve Evidence

By Corky Siemaszko  Apr 12 2017, 7:26 pm ET

The United Airlines passenger who was videotaped being bloodied and dragged off an overbooked plane by airport police signaled Wednesday he would fight back in court.

David Dao filed an emergency "bill of discovery" against the carrier in Illinois State Court demanding that evidence documenting Sunday's "re-accommodation" aboard a Kentucky-bound plane be "preserved and protected."

That includes all surveillance videos, cockpit voice recordings, passenger and crew lists, incident reports and other items.

Newsweek

Opinion


Why United Was Legally Wrong to Deplane David Dao

By Jens David Ohlin On 4/13/17 at 9:42 AM


Snipped

Like all airlines, United has a very specific (and lengthy!) contract for carriage outlining the contractual relationship between the airline and the passenger. It includes a familiar set of provisions for when a passenger may be denied boarding (Rule 25: “Denied Boarding Compensation”).

When a flight is oversold, UA (United Airlines) can deny boarding to some passengers, who then receive compensation under specific guidelines. However, Dao was not denied boarding. He was granted boarding and then involuntarily removed from the airplane. What does the contract say about that?

It turns out that the contract has a specific rule regarding “Refusal of Transport” (Rule 21), which lays out the conditions under which a passenger can be removed and refused transport on the aircraft. This includes situations where passengers act in a “disorderly, offensive, abusive, or violent” manner, refuse to comply with the smoking policy, are barefoot or “not properly clothed,” as well as many other situations.

  There is absolutely no provision for deplaning a seated passenger because the flight is oversold.

United Airlines Passenger Says Dog Died After Flight From Detroit To Oregon

Updated: February 15, 2017 1:32 pm EDT

By Ashlee Kieler@akieler

Snipped


“He (Jacob) was then sent to a kennel over night, 20 hours, until the next flight out he could fit on,” the woman wrote on Facebook, noting that the airline didn’t allow Jacob to fly with food, despite the fact that United’s PetSafe checklist [PDF] says kennels are supposed to have food and water bowls, and may have up to a pound of dry food attached to the crate.

Kathleen posted her side of the story on Facebook

 

February 10, 2017

https://www.facebook.com/kathleen.considine.14/posts/10158073166065062

_____________________________________________

United Airlines
PetSafe® animal acceptance and release
For use with dogs and cats only
For other warm-blooded animals shipped as PetSafe use checklist CGO557
https://consumermediallc.files.wordpress.com/2017/02/dog-and-cat-checklist-3-29-16.pdf

I understand the airline would not permit any food to be left the Jacob?  What is up with that?  Why does the airline ask on the checklist for 2 food/water dishes,
and if her mother (allegedly) was not permit to leave food for the dog?  The airline check list #15: Does the kennel have 2 food/water dishes?
A dog would need water and food within the 20 hour duration of layover, IMO.  Was he given water during the 20 hours?  Who at United Airlines feeds the flying cat or dog?

_______________________________________________

I hope we get some clear answers someday. United Airline's statement said the case is closed according to the post at the end of the youtube video.

Nearly half of young Americans won’t fly United anymore

 
By Jacob Passy  Published: Apr 22, 2017 10:19 a.m. ET

A new survey found that 42% of millennials said they would no longer fly with United Airlines.


And in another sign that United Airlines’ PR disaster is far from over: the lennies have turned on the company.
