As usual you are a liar.
It is United policy that employees can only use the free seat on under booked flightsd, this is why all Liberals are fools, you never try to be educated on any topic, you just blurt out any emotion based attack you can dream up.
In this case the story was the staff needed to travel to take over a plane where a crew got sick. That staff was needed so other passengers would not be stranded. It is the bigger picture you are missing.
