‘I will NEVER fly with them again’: Angry customers shred United Airlines loyalty cards and swear off the company after passenger was dragged off an overbooked flight

Furious United Airlines passengers are swearing off the company after a passenger was dragged off of an overbooked flight.

Many social media users posted photos cutting up their frequent flyer cards and United sponsored credit cards, and promised to cancel accounts with the airline.

The actions were motivated by a shocking confrontation on Sunday in which a passenger was knocked out and dragged off of a United plane at Chicago’s O’Hare International airport after he refused to give up his seat for flight staff.

‘Getting rid of the card is the first step in making myself feel accountable in not being able to fly United,’ he said.

Phyllis Brown, a nurse practitioner from Denver, CO, posted to Facebook saying that she was also destroying her United credit card ‘in protest of their recent brutal treatment of a legal paying passenger’.
