Houston, TX- United is facing controversy again for mistreatment of passengers.
Michael Hohl and his fiance, Amber Maxwell, were flying to Costa Rica for their destination wedding this weekend. According to the groom, a man was spread across their row napping. The flight had several empty rows, so they moved up to different seats instead of trying to wake the man. When flight attendants asked if they were in their ticketed seats, they explained the situation but were asked to return to their assigned seats. They did so, but marshals removed them from the plane, claiming that they were being disorderly.
Hohl and his bride-to-be were forced to stay the night in Houston before flying out the next day. [KHOU]
