I’m happy to say that we’ve never missed a flight due to our own mistake. Over the years, we missed a few connecting flights due to other flight delays.
If you happen to be running late for a flight, DO NOT do what this man did so he wouldn’t miss a flight on United Airlines.
Dana Carter, a 40 year-old man from Ohio called in a bomb threat in October for a Dayton to Dallas flight.
Fox News reports that, he, “called in a bomb threat to Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport so he would avoid missing his flight was sentenced to four months in prison and ordered to pay a fine.”
The flight was canceled due to his actions and Carter was placed on another flight a couple of hours later.
Carter’s attorney said that what he did was a foolish act. It is also going to cost him a lot more than it would’ve to just purchase a new flight.
Besides the jail time, Carter will have to pay United Airlines back $7,700 for the canceled flight. And, after he’s released from jail, Carter will be on federal probation for three years.
