The first five months of the 2017 year has been a stressful one for airline CEO’s. Three of the top airlines; United, American, and Delta, have all recently been getting grief on how their crew has handled incidents on their aircrafts.

Sunday, April 9, videos of United Airlines flight 3411 out of Chicago O’Hare International Airport left disappointed and angry travelers across the globe. Dr. David Dao was dragged off the Louisville bound flight, after he refused to deplane the overbooked flight. After many videos surfaced on the internet, United faced what would become a nightmare of backlash towards the company.

The airline mistreatments would continue when another video on social media appeared of a woman and her crying baby standing just inside the plane, when a flight attendant “violently took a stroller from a lady with her baby” then hitting her and just missing the baby” according to the person who posted the video. Later on, a passenger would get up out of his seat as the situation escalates then threatened the attendant, “Hey bud, hey bud, you do that to me and I’ll knock you flat!”

Most recently, Delta Airlines had two incidents. One was an aircraft that had been sitting on the tarmac for thirty minutes when a Milwaukee man got up to use the restroom. He ended getting kicked off the flight. Then a California family came out saying that they were kicked off the flight because they refused to give up a seat that they had bought for their child. The seat had belonged to their 18 year old who caught an earlier flight. The family planned to use the seat and give it to one of their younger children. Delta would later apologize saying “We are sorry for the unfortunate experience our customers had with Delta, and we’ve reached out to them to refund their travel and provide additional compensation. Delta’s goal is to always work with customers in an attempt to find solutions to their travel issues. That did not happen in this case and we apologize.”

Air Travel has become stressful for some this year leaving them furious at the airline as well as the airline’s customers. CEO’s have apologized about the incidents that took place, but for the victim, they still are left frustrated towards the company.
