a bit off topic, but weren't they ordered to re-brand under copyright infringement of UA?

This seems to be strange ......leave alone an ATR72.What caused the windshield to shatter.....I've heard of blown away or cracked windshield but this is rare....

It wasnt branding but about code share and star alliance related stuff which the Bengali airline were said to be wrongly promoting at their site as a partner of UA and Star, if they were actually told to rebrand then I hope they told UA to shove it

Don't youthink that United Airlines had every right to be concerned if another airine was using their name. If there was any stuffing to be done, it should have been United Airways (BD)

United AIRLINES vs United AIRWAYS, dont tell me you cant spot the difference between the two names, I wont even bother posting pics of the two and their distinctly "similar" liveries and typeface and logos.

A little overdramatic in the passenger interview dont you think? Sounds like a movie script.

Are you saying overtorquing caused the cracking which went undetected.
