OK, to illustrate even more strongly the hollowness of the argument we're refuting, let's pretend that what you just pointed out isn't true.

Let's pretend that UA's moving crew around HAD to be done, and let's ask if every link in the chain of events that led to Dr. Dao's ejection (and let's pretend it was nonviolent) was beyond the airline's control.

And let's ask ourselves, what force majeure kept the airline from increasing the VDB offer until they got 4 seats?
