The internet has gone wild over a social-media video showing a passenger being dragged from his seat and removed from a United Airlines flight with blood on his face.

2. Emirates mocks United 

In wake of the United scandal, Emirates has used the public backlash against the violent removal of the passenger to get back at its critics.
