United execs get dragged to testify on Capitol Hill

Irune Rengel | 21 Abril, 2017, 01:57

Blumental recently penned a letter to US Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao - whose department is reportedly reviewing the United Airlines incident - outlining his concerns with the treatment of passengers by US airlines. Security was called and after a violent tussle with the passenger in his economy class window seat, the medical practitioner was dragged off apparently unconscious with two teeth missing, a broken nose and concussion.

United announced late last week that it would stop the practice of involuntarily removing passengers from planes once they'd boarded, as was the case on Flight 3411.

Munoz says he takes full responsibility "for making this right" after the April 9 incident aboard a United Express plane in Chicago.

Many lawmakers fly home almost every week while Congress is in session, so the United incident hit a raw nerve.

"A lot of people have ideas and thoughts about how we can make things better, but in that segment, there's been a lot of support", said Munoz.

Like the United CEO, Metrorail will have a ready string of excuses, cable theft being one of them.

Officials were advising people that traffic in the downtown core would be affected for several hours for the investigation. One male officer and one female officer were taken to Harborview Medical Center, Seattle police said.

In response to the public outcry over the incident, United has said that it will require its employees to book seats on hour in advance, to avoid similar incidents of passengers being forced to give up their seats after boarding.

Munoz had already vowed not to involve law enforcement in the removal of passengers from a flight unless they present a security risk.

"I want to know why this happened, how it was allowed to occur and what protocols are in place to handle overbooked flights", said Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill.

He said the USA and its allies would deal with the situation "through peaceable means or ultimately by whatever means are necessary".

While the CEO of the airline called Dr Dao "disruptive and belligerent", United shares fell by 6.3%, which was a whopping $1.4-billion (R18.6-billion) in real money. The CEO added that it was clear "we have further to go in terms of elevating the experience customers have with us". "Our entire leadership team and our entire airline is focused on learning from this event", he said.
