“Drop United,” will remove all United flights from your search

The extension, called “Drop United,” will remove all United flights from your search when you’re booking trips using Google Chrome.

The extension’s description reads, “Drop United is a Chrome extension that drags United Airlines off your flight search results. So the next time you search for a flight, United won’t have a seat in your options.” The wording is an obvious play on the incident that occurred Sunday evening when a passenger was physically pulled off a flight after refusing to give up his seat.

Passenger problem is compounded by a prior incident involving leggings

The United Airline passenger problem is compounded by a prior incident involving leggings being treated as inappropriate flight wear. This has caused quite an uproar among flyers and some are looking to boycott the airline. This extension makes that a little bit easier.

The extension is available in the Chrome web store and currently works when you use Google Search, Google Flights, Kayak and Expedia to search for flights.
