Emirates and Royal Jordanian troll United Airlines post off-loading fiasco

United Airline’s now infamous slogan “Fly the friendly skies” is under attack on the social media world after its fiasco over the forcible removal of a doctor from flight 3411 last week. The doctor was injured when police attempted to forcibly eject him after the airline ran short of seats and needed them for their off-duty flight crew.

Two middle-east carriers wasted no time in creating pun ads and memes.

Royal Jordanian airlines tweeted “We are here to keep you #united Dragging is strictly prohibited ?”

Dubai-based Emirates airline made a video titled “Fly the friendly skies with a REAL airline”, which builds upon its being rated as the best airline in world in travel rating site TripAdvisor’s, Travel Choice Awards.

Some users made a humorous comparison of United and Air India relating back to the Shiv Sena parliamentarian Ravindra Gaikwad
United: We beat our passengers
Air India: Our passengers beat us
