United said, however, that when it asked for volunteers Sunday night, there were no takers. But how could it have been prevented in the first place?

Speaking of his employees, Munoz said: "They all have an incredible amount of common sense, and this issue could have been solved by that". Many responded with outrage over perceived ethnic bias against the passenger and some called for a boycott of the USA -based airline. It's a standard practice for airlines, because history shows some people don't show up, for whatever reason.Regarding boarding, there is a pecking order of who gets to board first that, at times, makes me feel like a peasant with my lowly, economy-class ticket, minus a premium seat upgrade with its teeny extra leg room.

The deregulatory spiral started when President Ronald Reagan fired the air traffic controllers when they went on strike in the 1980's continues. "But to just randomly say, 'You're getting off the plane, ' that was bad".
