United Airlines has made headlines again. Last week, they made headlines because a passenger was violently dragged off of a plane. They have also been accused of barring a gay man from entering the plane. The victim, whose name is Trey Harris, was on his way from New Jersey to San Diego. He uses a mobility device because he has an autoimmune disorder that makes it difficult to walk. However, he was not able to get on the flight to make it to his honeymoon destination.
Trey stated that he called United Airlines ahead of time to let them know about his disability. He received an email saying that it would be okay for him to bring his device. He was able to get through TSA, but he was stopped at the boarding gate. They stated that the device was a hoverboard, and he could not take it on the plane.
Tony was very upset about the incident and had to be consoled by his husband. He talked about how he had to spend several hundred dollars to rent a scooter. Fortunately, he was still able to make it to his honeymoon with his husband. He still had other issues when he went on his honeymoon. He received a letter from United Airlines accusing him of abandoning a hazardous material.
Tony is expecting an apology from United Airlines, but he has not yet received one. He also wants them to let him know if it is okay for him to bring his mobile device on the plane so that he does not have this issue again.
