Unified Airlines attempted an apology for what seems to be just another example of the airlines trying to correct an oversold flight as a passenger was forcibly removed from his seat and strapped to the roof of the plane for the duration of the flight. “We reserve the right to strap any of our passengers to the wings, underbelly, or roof of the plane under any given circumstance. Nevertheless, we are sorry,” said Unified Airlines Vice President Mike Gottard, adding that the passenger was strapped on safely and securely.
Unified Airlines is no stranger to controversy. Just last year they came under fire for various wrong doings such as: randomly taking away seat belts, removing passengers mid-flight, and forcing passengers to use mandatory catheters in lieu of bathrooms. “While we are not perfect, we strive to be. That is why we are issuing a $50 voucher to the passenger affected,” said Gottard proudly. While the airline is not expected to strap anyone other passengers to a plane’s exterior anytime soon, it’s certainly a possibility.
