United Airlines were criticised this week for beating up an elderly doctor. Yet somehow, the situation has plummeted even further since then.
And quite literally so in the case of one of their passengers.
An unexpected exit
One passenger claims the incident took place when the complimentary peanuts were being handed out, and the cabin crew ran out before being able to offer everyone a packet.
Although the passenger who got left out didn’t even want peanuts, the air attendants started shouting:
It’s not about you, chump-knuckle
How’s it going to look on our next development review if our peanut distribution dips below 100%?
In an effort to keep their legume-delivery statistics high, the crew did what any United Airlines crew would. They opened the door and forcibly ejected the defiant passenger out of the plane.
United Airlines have of course released a statement in response:
Look, no one was more irritated by this situation than us. Do you think we want to be answering questions about why we’re throwing passengers off planes? Do you realise how bad that makes us look?
The fact of the matter is that United Airlines have maintained a peanut success rate of 100% for years. But we mess up once, and suddenly we’re the bad guys!
Readers will be glad to know that the ejected passenger did actually survive. And he’s suing United Airlines for peanuts. Actual peanuts too. Because obviously that’s all they’re going to have left following the PR nightmare they’re about to experience.
We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
