We won't drag passenger off plane anymore: United Airlines CEO

If no one volunteers to get off, the airline can select passengers for removal based on criteria such as check-in time or the cost of a ticket, according to the department's Fly-Rights.

When asked what his injuries were, Dao said "everything", CNN affiliate WLKY reported.

Aviation Commissioner Ginger Evans says the officers had the authority to board the plane but that the rest of what occurred is under investigation.

The flight was loaded and preparing to leave Chicago's O'Hare International Airport on Sunday when the man was dragged off.

The unlucky victor was Dao, who refused to leave the plane, saying that he needed to see patients in the morning.

The Dao family issued a statement expressing gratitude for the "outpouring of support".

Last Saturday, after the passengers have settled in their seats, flight 3411 was announced as overbooked.

NHS could ban sugary drinks from hospital shops
Sugary drinks made in NHS cafes and canteens, such as coffees with sugar syrup, will also be targeted alongside cans and bottles. WHSmith, Marks & Spencer, Greggs, Subway and the Royal Voluntary Service have all agreed to cut sales.

And you suspect, just as I do, that the real culprit here has nothing to do with public relations. Sometimes it happens because the airline needs room for employees who are commuting to work on another flight - that's what happened Sunday on United Express.

Technically, that means the passengers were in violation of United's policies and could face legal repercussions in civil court or be barred from future United flights.

Two ground crew members walk past a United Airlines airplane as it sits at a gate at Newark Liberty International Airport in Newark, New Jersey, June 18, 2011. However, that stance backfired as the company's stocks fell and there was a call to boycott the airlines by the customers.

Munoz said he has not considered resigning.

"Airlines deny boarding at the check-in counter" and United-like situations haven't happened here so far, said D. Sudhakara Reddy, founder Air Passengers Association of India.

Munoz, who leads United's parent company, apologized again to Kentucky physician David Dao, his family and the other passengers who witnessed him being taken off the flight.

The lawyers also want the airline and the city of Chicago to retain reports from the flight, along with the personnel files of the aviation officers who pulled Dao from the flight, the Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday.

Clint Eastwood to helm terrorist train drama
Spencer Stone and his two childhood friends were on a train in France, when they heard a man loading a gun in the bathroom. Clint Eastwood is about to get back behind the camera for another true story of heroism with The 15:17 to Paris.

Attorney Thomas Demetrio says Dao came to the U.S.in 1975.

President Donald Trump shakes hands with United Airlines President and CEO Oscar Munoz during a meeting with airline industry executives on February 9. The footage records an initial conversation between Dao and an airport law enforcement officer and seemingly refutes the airline's assertion that passenger was "disruptive and belligerent", before he was dragged off the plane. He said United had to "re-accommodate" the man, who was bloodied in the encounter with security officials. Eventually Fearns agreed to be moved down to economy class but demanded a full refund for his flight and that United make a $25,000 (£20,000) donation to charity. Christie, a Republican, said bumping passengers off flights is "unconscionable".

It looks like United Airlines has a history of mistreating its passengers who refuse to voluntarily give up their seats.

Bumping is rare - only about one in 16,000 passengers got bumped a year ago, the lowest rate since at least the mid-1990s.

His lawyers filed an emergency petition on Wednesday asking that all potential evidence from the episode be preserved. He refused to leave.

One of the Chicago police officers was placed on leave the day after the incident.

Today, unlike other airport police forces in Los Angeles, New York and Minneapolis, Chicago's aviation police are not allowed to carry guns.

"Everybody reaches a limit. but police officers are paid in part to use their common sense to resolve a situation". If I told a pilot that a passenger was misbehaving, I am sure he or she would have taken my word for it.
