First it was the infamous “drag and drop” incident that quickly went viral and is about to cost United millions in legal settlement fees. Then it was a “United” scorpion falling from an overhead bin. Now, according to KHOU, a couple headed to Costa Rica for their wedding on Saturday afternoon got kicked off their United flight out of Houston.
The incident took place on United Airlines Flight 1737 which was headed from Houston (IAH) to Liberia, Costa Rica (LIR). The couple, along with their friends, were flying from Salt Lake City and had a layover at George Bush Intercontinental Airport.
Michael Hohl, the groom, said he and his fiancé, Amber Maxwell, were the last to board the plane.
According to Hohl, they noticed a man was spread across their row napping when they approached their seats, 24 B and C. Not wanting to wake the man, Hohl said they decided to sit a three rows up in seats 21 B and C. He said they didn’t think it would matter because the flight was half full with multiple empty rows.
“We thought not a big deal, it’s not like we are trying to jump up into a first-class seat,” said Hohl.“We were simply in an economy row a few rows above our economy seat.” In a Boeing 737-800 like the one the couple was on, United considers Row 21 “economy plus,” an upgrade.
