I would have managed the situation in a way that didn't involve losing teeth.

Do tell robin lol I must say from his photo he looked foreign. Could it be he didn't understand what was happening? Thought he was being detained by some Gestapo type police?.It was brutal . I would never fly with them .In fact i think they are screwed as an airline now..

If you read the other threads and articles about it you will see that he did understand what was happening. He is apparently of Vietnamese origin but lives in the US.

Which 'other ' threads Pollyana? However he would have been the only one who 'understood what was happening' If that was true as no one else on the plane knew. Many protests by the passengers. Disgusting

I'm pretty sure Ian meant other BE forums, not completely different discussion boards.

There is also this one. Although granted the op named the wrong airline.

Why? Are you incapable of accessing other forums on BE? You seem to have access to the Internet! You must be confusing the terms "forum" and "web site". Words have meaning... and I was quite specific.

Things that will get you kicked of an United Airlines flight:

Wearing leggings

Having an United Airlines ticket
