Is United the worst airline ever?

United might've dethroned Spirit Airlines for the title of worst airline after a video showing law enforcement physically dragging a doctor from an overbooked United flight went viral. (Just a little over a week after banning a 10-year-old girl for wearing leggings.)  But some people think if Spirit were handling the situation, they would have found an innovative way to be worse than United. After all, Spirit is the lowest-ranked airline in the skies. What do you think? ✈️

United physically dragged a passenger out of an overbooked flight to Louisville on Sunday evening. The passenger reportedly refused to give up his seat because he's a doctor and needed to consult with patients Monday morning. When the passenger refused to give up his seat, United called in law enforcement to get him out. It got ugly. 

Take a look at the video and see for yourself.

This mess, along with the leggings debacle a couple of weeks ago, has people thinking United is the worst airline out there. Delta is bad, but it's not drag-you-off-a-plane-and-leave-you-bloody bad. Same with Spirit. To make the situation worse, United's statement is full of weasel words and doublespeak in an effort to downplay the situation. Instead of acknowledging the public outcry, it instead apologized for "having to re-accommodate"customers.

But some folks think Spirit would somehow find a way to be worse than United. After all, it takes a lot of hard work to become the "most hated airline in the U.S.

Spirit has a history of ejecting passengers, often along racial lines, and is generally shitty all-around. At least United is only occasionally shitty.
