CALGARY, Canada (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – Another United Airlines flight was reported to have been overbooked last week, this time on a plane from Houston, Texas to Calgary, Canada.
The airlines confirmed that the flight had one scorpion too many.
A passenger was stung mid-flight by the scorpion 🦂 , requiring medical treatment upon landing in Calgary.
United said it was aware of the extra passenger before the plane took off, but the flight crew decided not to do anything for fear that it might create yet another PR nightmare and possible lawsuit for the beleaguered airline.
United faces a court case after that unfortunate incident in which a passenger was dragg out of his seat to make room for flight crew.
