Isaiah Briscoe was supposed to be on United Flight 3411


Isaiah Briscoe was almost a part of the biggest news story in the world right now.

As he told it on KSR this morning, Briscoe was scheduled to be on United Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville — yeah, that one — but some confusion in the Newark airport left him behind.

Briscoe said he was told he was on standby for his flight from Newark to Chicago, so he sat at the terminal and watched his plane leave without him. Then another United employee told him he was actually supposed to be on the flight that had just left, but at that point it was too late. He was rescheduled on another flight to Chicago that couldn’t get him there in time to make his connection to United Flight 3411, the flight that was overbooked and violent.

So what would’ve happened to Briscoe if he had been on 3411?

Well, I guess there’s a decent chance he could’ve been one of the passengers pulled from the plane, but it wouldn’t have ended the way it did for the doctor from Elizabethtown. Briscoe wouldn’t say what he would’ve done, but he did say he wouldn’t be yanked from his seat like the poor man you’ve seen on the news. (And I think we know what that means.)

    They choose the seats at random. Not last in – first out.

      It wasn’t truly at random. According to some talking heads on the news, in those cases airlines use an algorithm that factors in how long you’ve had the seat, how much you paid, etc.

    If they had tried to drag Briscoe off the plane, I imagining the officer being dragged, bleeding and unconscious…

      Briscoe is not that kind of guy. He probably would have just taken the money and got up. I doubt he fights security.

      Yeah my bet is on us never even hearing about if it had been Briscoe.

      We just would have saw a Snapchat selfie from Chicago saying “Laid over… got $400 tho”

      You guys must not have seen Briscoe on the court this season, I’m pretty sure he is that kind of guy.

      Lol, 4everblue sounds like Briscoe’s hype man or something with all of these posts he’s making. From everything I’ve seen Briscoe is a fake tough guy. Talks a big game but wouldn’t actually do anything. If you’ve ever played or been around sports you can pinpoint these guys in an instant.

      I dont think he’s a “fake tough guy” I just don’t think he would attack an officer because they asked him to give up his seat for $400 on an overbooked flight. lol is there no middle ground in KSR comments?anymore?

    If I was security and they told me to drag Briscoe off a plane, I’d say, “YOU do it.”

      I’m with you, if it got physical my money is on Briscoe.

      Briscoe is the toughest basketball player to ever walk the earth. He just oozes toughness and intimidation–said no one ever

    Funny that the airline told Briscoe that he was supposed to be on a flight that was already so overbooked that they had to drag a guy out by his ankles.

    Also, we’re probably lucky Briscoe wasn’t on that plane. There’s a chance he would have been one of the ones to receive $400 and a hotel stay – in which case, we get hit with an impermissible benefits investigation and 15-year probation.
