“A couple flying to Costa Rica for their wedding were removed from a United Airlines flight in Houston on Saturday.
The incident happened nearly a week after a video showing a passenger being dragged off a Chicago-to-Louisville flight went viral.
Michael Hohl and Amber Maxwell are scheduled to get married on Thursday.
They talked KHOU-TV in Houston:
“Michael Hohl, the groom, said he and his fiancee, Amber Maxwell, were the last to board the plane.
“According to Hohl, they noticed a man was spread across their row napping when they approached their seats, 24 B and C.
“Not wanting to wake the man, Hohl said they decided to sit three rows up in seats 21 B and C. He said they didn’t think it would matter because the flight was half full with multiple empty rows.
“We thought ‘not a big deal, it’s not like we are trying to jump up into a first-class seat,'” said Hohl. “We were simply in an economy row a few rows above our economy seat.”
