- Spain Will No Longer Fly With United Airlines (Statement)
10 April 2017 Los Angeles
In the news today we have seen disturbing images and video footage depicting the violent, forced ejection of a passenger from a United Airlines flight. This passenger had done nothing wrong, and did nothing to deserve such treatment.
As a band that travels frequently, we in the band Spain cannot tolerate such behavior from an airline that is supposed to garner our trust. We will no longer be flying with United. Our tour rider will be amended to state as such.
We wish the victim of United Airlines’ brutal and completely unnecessary tactics well and wish him a speedy recovery. We hope he will receive just compensation from the airline. We also hope the people who are in charge of the airline do the right thing and apologize to the passenger who was abused, to the passengers (including small children) of the flight who had to witness the assault in person, and to all people everywhere who were emotionally affected by the footage.

RestÃ© aux portes de mon top albums, le Carolina americana de Josh Haden nâ€™en est pas moins la plus belle rÃ©ussite de Spain depuis la reformation du groupe en 2007... voire depuis The Blue Moods of Spain ? En tÃ©moigne ce final qui ravivera un temps les regrets de tous ceux ont dÃ», un jour, laissÃ© derriÃ¨re eux une personne chÃ¨re Ã leur cÅ“ur.
