United Airlines Allegedly Made Woman Pee In A Cup During Flight
What's going on with these airlines these days? Things need to change quick. All this bad publicity can't be great for business.
A woman claimed that she was forced to urinate in a cup more than once after the crew of an overbooked flight refused to let her use the bathroom.
"On the same day United Airlines drags a passenger off an overbooked flight, they forced me to pee in a cup...and then shamed me," Harper said on Facebook on Saturday of the incident, alleged to have occurred in April. "While allowing other passengers to get up and use the restroom on a seemingly uneventful flight, United Airlines crew wouldn't allow me to get up and use the restroom until the pilot turned off the seat belt sign. After explaining that I have an overactive bladder and would either need to use the restroom or pee in a cup, I was handed a cup by flight attendants."
In an interview with KCTV 5 News on Tuesday, Harper said she felt she was "being punked" when she allegedly had to resort to filling "two cups" with her husband's assistance. "[A flight attendant] was basically reprimanding me and talking down to me through the aisle with other people listening," Harper said.2017 has proven to be a difficult public relations year for United.
In April, as referenced in Harper's Facebook post, video surfaced of a passenger being violently removed from a flight to make room for United crew members. The passenger, Dr. David Dao, later reached a settlement with United. "[United CEO Oscar Munoz] said he was going to do the right thing, and he has," Thomas Demetrio, one of Dr. Dao's attorneys, told CNN. "In addition, United has taken full responsibility for what happened...without attempting to blame others, including the City of Chicago." -(Complex)
