Why you, too, could get dragged off a plane if the airline overbooks your flight

If you buy an airplane ticket, do you think the airline is allowed to make you give it up against your will — and even drag you off the plane?

“Your regular civil rights don’t apply when you’re on an airplane,” said Paul Hudson of FlyersRights.org, a nonprofit airline consumer protection organization. “What you should do if you have a problem with a flight crew is to document it and file a complaint later. You have rights, but you have to exercise them once you’re off the flight.”

Getting bumped from a flight is rarely convenient, but on Sunday it turned violent for one man aboard an overbooked United Airlines plane.
