Here’s the time a Nobel-prize-winning economist got ejected from a United flight


When it comes to overbooked flights, no one is safe.

On Sunday evening, a video went viral of a man who said he was a doctor, being forcibly removed or “re-accomodated” from a United Airlines flight at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport because the flight was over-booked, a common practice by airlines. His face bloodied, the man was dragged up the aisle of the airplane by a Chicago Airport security officer after he refused to get off the plane. (The security officer has since been placed on leave and United’s chief executive Oscar Munoz has launched an investigation into the incident.)

It’s not the first time this happened.
