United offers refunds to passengers who saw doctor dragged off flight

Meanwhile, United will compensate all passengers for the cost of the flight in which Dao was forcibly removed by security officers, Bloomberg reported. "I share all of those sentiments", Munoz said in a statement. Munoz and the whole United Airlines Corporation have been backpedaling ever since. Video posted to Facebook and Twitter showed him as he was dragged out of his seat and down the aisle of the plane after refusing to give up his seat. He said that plane seats are perishable commodities - once the door has been closed, seats on a flight can't be sold and lose all value.

Munoz said he doesn't think Dao was at fault in the incident.

"You saw us at a bad moment".

According to records from the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure, Dao went to medical school at the University of Medicine of Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, graduating in 1974. Munoz said in a letter to employees that the airline offered $1,000.

"You know, there's a point at which I'm getting off the plane. seriously", said Trump.

He committed the third-largest USA airline to "a thorough review" of its policies for handling oversold flights and vowed to report back to the public by April 30. United was trying to make room for four employees of a partner airline, meaning four people had to get off.

After the video first emerged, he said the airline was reaching out to the man to "resolve this situation".

Attorney Thomas Demetrio said at a news conference Thursday that Dr. David Dao has been discharged from a hospital but will need reconstructive surgery.

The Aviation Department's roughly 300 officers guard the city's two main airports but are not part of the regular Chicago police force, receive less training and can not carry guns inside the terminals.

Dao was removed from the plane Sunday after he refused to give up his seat on the full flight from Chicago to Louisville. The lawyers sought a court order Wednesday in Chicago to preserve evidence, including surveillance videos, crew lists, and other information, that could be used in litigation.

Dao's lawyers already have taken steps toward filing a lawsuit.

The event stemmed from a common air travel issue - a full flight.

In reply to this previous statement of Munoz, the Dubai-based airlines emphasized their current standing on TripAdvisor as the best airline. When no one volunteered, the computer generated four passengers' names.

But once they found out that the next flight wasn't until Monday afternoon, he demurred and sat back, saying he was a physician who needed to get to work the next day.

The announcement Wednesday from the city's Aviation Department comes two days after another officer involved in the Sunday night confrontation was put on leave.

The backlash from the incident resonated around the world, with social media users in the United States, China and Vietnam calling for boycotts of the No. 3 USA carrier by passenger traffic and an end to the practice of overbooking flights.

It's an often-overlooked policy to which you agree when you book your tickets. The officer told him he had to get off the plane, and when he resisted, the officer grabbed him out of his seat The massive backlash to the airlines prompted CEO Oscar Munoz to call the incident "upsetting" and apologise "for having to re-accommodate" customers.
