Obvious trolls are obvious. Duplicate account banned.
But his fake news was compelling. And very plausible. He should be a writer.

Southwest does not overbook as part of the selling process (Effective May 8, 2017). While we no longer ďoverbookĒ flights, there will be operational instances where we will be over available seating capacity resulting in an oversale. Operational instances that may create an oversale include weight restrictions and aircraft type changes.

I thought southwest all flies the same type of plane....

Basically, the passengers without seats were FAs who were deadheading, so nobody realized they were looking for seats, even after pilot announced.

Obvious troll, but doesn't mean it's not what happened.

I prefer OP's version, though it could do with more screaming, shouting and violence. And a plot twist.

I doubt any kids on the flight paid for their seats themselves.

Does anyone disagree that yidden, based Dan's popularity for example, like to get a deal?  So these people on the plane were hoping that the standing passengers would find somewhere else to sit and they'd get a free seat for there kid and they can brag to their friends when they get home about the shtick they used.   What's the big deal here?

The big deal is that they made repeated announcements that people were sitting in unpaid for seats, and passengers are still standing holding up departure, yet no one got up to say a seat is open where their kid was sitting. It's absolutely disgusting, and the apologists here are making me even more disgusted.

Sorry, I misspoke.  I didn't mean what's the big deal, I meant what's the big news?  That the yiddishe world has a ben adom lichaveiro problem?  Duh!

I don't think anyone is apologizing. I'm saying that people might be too embarrassed in that situation to just stand up.

Personally I buy a seat for all my kids for safety and convenience reasons, but CH is clearly another reason to do so.

Prove Henches made up story didn't happen?
There are a hundred stories I can make up. Onus is on an actual passenger to say what happened.

We don't actually know that OP is not making up the whole thing from scratch either.

There were 150-175 ppl on that plane--where's the corroborating witnesses?

In the story? Or on an actual plane? Or ever in the history of the world?
