“They just throw people from the Board to spare the crew, too, could fly,” added bridges.
“This man is a doctor, he must be at work in the hospital tomorrow morning. He didn’t want to give up his seat. We are all shocked and outraged,” writes the woman.
Users Facebook actively comment on the incident.
However, as noted by one commenter, we may not know all the details of the story: “there is something else. Usually, if the airline sells too many tickets, it offers vouchers to those who are willing to change your flight, and there are always volunteers. I believe that this story is much deeper than what we see on the video.”
