United Airlines will refund every single passenger who was the plane when a doctor was injured dragged off by airport officers in Chicago.

"This will never happen again on United Airlines", CEO of United Airlines Oscar Munoz told ABC news in an interview. The airline said that, when no one volunteered, the crew created a list of passengers that would be reassigned to another flight.

Facebook/Audra DickersonA new video obtained by People Magazine shows an exchange the police had with the passenger they dragged off a United Airlines flight.

Munoz continued: "We are not going to put a law enforcement official onto a plane to take them off ... to remove a booked, paid, seated passenger; we can't do that".

United said in a statement that it needed room on the aircraft to transfer crew for another flight and that it offered $1,000 to customers to give up their seats.

His absence was surprising to people who thought he would attend because of his fraught history with Jewish people. For this reason the festival is famous for its use of matzo (flat, unleavened bread, made without yeast).

To calm the backlash, United have announced all passengers onboard the express Flight 3411 will be compensated the total cost of their tickets.

David Dao (the doctor who was dragged off the plane) is now at a hospital in Chicago undergoing treatment for the injuries he suffered during the altercation.

Dao is scheduled to hold a press conference on Thursday, his legal team said. The others did as they were told, but Dao refused and was yanked out of his seat and dragged off the plane by airport security.

Dao is said to be the only passenger of the four asked to leave the flight who did not comply.

The Chicago Aviation Department employee who pulled Dao off the plane has been suspended.

Arsenal complete deal for Schalke left-back Sead Kolasinac
Serie A club AC Milan are interested too, but their move will depend on their takeover finally being completed. The left back position has been a subject of major debate amongst Arsenal fans this season.

Munoz is under pressure to contain a torrent of bad publicity and calls for boycotts against United unleashed by videos that captured Dao's rough treatment by airline and airport security staff.

Munoz's latest statement described the removal as "truly horrific". Dao, a physician specializing in pulmonary disease, lives in Elizabethtown, Kentucky.

After video of Sunday night's incident first emerged, Munoz said the airline was reaching out to the man to "resolve this situation".

Dao was ultimately convicted in late 2004 of several counts of obtaining drugs by fraud or deceit and was placed on five years of supervised probation and surrendered his medical license.
