First it trolled Donald Trump. Then the in-flight electronics ban. Now Royal Jordanian is trolling United Airlines.
The Royal Jordanian social team seems to have a lot of fun. In response to a trending story of United Airlines dragging a passenger off a flight, RJ has posted this on Twitter–
And yet I cannot help but to shake my head. I’ll be discussing the United dragging incident again in at least two posts. The whole nation is talking about it. For all the work United Airlines has done to restore its battered image, this battering of a passenger has made United a laughingstock. As if the leggings incident was not enough.
The sad thing is United is not directly responsible for both incidents. But it sure screwed up the PR in both cases.
Across the internet you can find United at the butt of a myriad of jokes. The Daily Mail provides several examples.

You get the picture. And I doubt United can do anything to salvage this other than hope for a short attention span from the public.
We get a chuckle at these, but the bottom line is that United finds itself in hot water again…and the heat is being turned up.
