United isn't totally to blame here, either. The airport police obviously handled this very poorly. I was recently on a WestJet flight where the police had to remove someone from the plane and was extremely impressed with how they handled the situation.

Only 1 person had to be removed on a flight to Thunder Bay?

Even before you get to the actual humanity of the situation, what possible need could the airline have for those seats that justified this just from a public relations standpoint?

Seriously. They should be able to plan that they'll need seats to transport staff to other flights, or have a standing policy that they hold 4 seats until it's confirmed they don't need them.

I don't know the context of who/why they had to ship people out but they have something like a 10 hour landover before pilots (not sure if that policy is included for cabin workers too) can fly.  If one of the passengers was the pilot they may need to get them there so they have sufficient rest to legally get on their flight.

But yes, there really isn't any justification.

So looks like 18 year old me is going to be really disappointed with 35 year old me and my lack of partaking in his dream:

So, you're not going to go out a buy a pack of joints for the weekend? Yeah, me neither.

You know, I probably will go buy some once I'm able to just so I can say I did after thinking it'd never come to pass but I can't see myself actually indulging.

Sounds about right. Depending on how they're distributed, I'll probably do the same, have one night of reliving that period of my life, and consider that enough.

You're both going to be habitual users within a month.  ;D

I think it's become impossible not to conclude that Chevrolet's target market in TV ads is extremely boring white people.

Pffft, if that were true why would they buy so much ad time during hockey games?
