A month after video footage of a man being dragged off a United Airlines airplane went viral, the airline is facing heat yet again, this time for forcing a female passenger to urinate in a cup in front of other passengers.
Nicole Harper, an emergency room nurse in Kansas City, says flight attendants wouldn’t let her get up to use the restroom until the captain turned off the seatbelt belt sign. Harper says she explained she has an overactive bladder and was then handed the cup to relieve herself — while she sat in her seat.
“You would think peeing in a cup on an airplane in front of my family and strangers would be the worst part of this story,” Harper recounted on Facebook. “But the way I was treated by flight attendants afterwards was worse.”

UNITED Airlines failed to remove Dr David Dao’s luggage from a flight they dragged him off and then sent it to the wrong address, his lawyer says.
Dr Dao’s lawyer, Thomas Demetrio told the Chicago SunTimes said his client was not just missing his two front teeth when he was violented dragged off his flight in Chicago but also his luggage.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse for United Airlines, this happens.
According to Travel and Leisure, Richard and Linda Bell were on a United Airlines flight home from Houston to Calgary on Sunday, after spending two weeks on vacation in Mexico. And while they were not violently deplaned out of yet another overbooked airplane, a just as traumatic ordeal took place when a scorpion fell from the overhead compartment and on to Richard.
They didn’t immediately recognize the honey-colored, 1.5-inch animal until a passenger sitting next to them pointed out that it was probably a scorpion.
Sept. 4 (Bloomberg) — Companies in the U.S. cut an estimated 33,000 jobs in August, a private report based on payroll data showed today.
The decrease followed a revised gain of 1,000 for the prior month that was lower than previously estimated, ADP Employer Services said.
The extended housing slump, high raw material costs and weaker demand are prompting employers to cut staff. Economists forecast the Labor Department will report tomorrow that the U.S. lost jobs for an eighth straight month last month.
