    United Airlines is being criticized after cellphone video surfaced of a passenger being forcibly removed from an at-capacity flight leaving from Chicago's O'Hare Airport Sunday night. NBC 5's Susan Carlson reports. (Published Tuesday, April 11, 2017)

    A Southwest Florida minor league baseball team has a message to all United Airlines flyers: "we have plenty of seats (and a lot more legroom)."

    The Fort Myers Miracle, an Advanced-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, is offering half-priced tickets to anyone with a United boarding pass.

    United passengers can get the discounted tickets to the team's upcoming home stand on April 17-20.
