Guards drag passenger off 'overbooked' United flight

It shows the guards grabbing the screaming man from a window seat and pulling him across the armrest before dragging him down the airplane aisle by his arms. "Oh my god!" one passenger says, as the man is dragged past her seat.

As Bridges told the Courier-Journal, passengers were then informed that a computer would choose four people, at random, to give up their seats.

The as-yet-unidentified passenger's offense: He declined to leave the Louisville flight after he was randomly selected to be bumped in favor of a United employee who needed to be in the Kentucky city on Monday morning.

It was breezy and warm in Chicago on Sunday when passengers stepped aboard United Flight 3411 to Louisville - but their trip would be anything but pleasant. He said law enforcement was called when the fourth person refused to get off the plane. "We are also reaching out to this passenger to talk directly with him to address and resolve this situation". A couple was selected first, who left the plane without incident. He then went limp as the officers dragged him down the aisle.

A United spokesperson confirmed in an email Sunday night that a passenger had been taken off a flight in Chicago. Nobody took the airline up on the offer, airline spokesman Charlie Hobart told CNN.

A few minutes later, the man who was removed from the plane returned, looking dazed and saying he had to get home, Bridges said.

United Airlines chief executive Oscar Munoz labelled the incident as "upsetting" and has apologised to customers.

No word on the condition of the man removed from the plane.

Audra Bridges posted a 31-second clip of the incident on Facebook, which showed three men in black shirts and black baseball caps yanking a middle-aged man out of a seat.
