The adage about a picture being worth a thousand words never seemed as true as it did Monday when a video clip shot around the Internet showing a passenger being violently removed from a United Airlines plane in Chicago for refusing to be ?voluntarily? bumped from the flight.

United no doubt will expend thousands of words explaining or apologizing for this incident in the coming days and weeks. It won?t help. The video is just too raw.

Indeed, the airline?s initial response to the publicity has left it covered in shame.

All airlines operate the same today.  The customer is expendable.  They are filling their flights, so they do not need to use customer service.  For those of us that fly frequently, we have known this for two decades.  Uggh!

On a similar flight years ago, I would received DOUBLE the fare to voluntarily bump off the plane....IN CASH!  And be on the next plane out.  Ah the good ol days!
