United Airlines is battling to restore its reputation after the release of a damning video showing a bloodied man being dragged off an overbooked flight. The CEO has since offered a full apology but for many people it’s too little, too late.
United Airlines has reached an "amicable settlement" with Dr David Dao, the passenger dragged off a domestic US flight to make room for crew members. Dao's lawyers say he suffered concussion, a broken nose and teeth.
After days of hestitation, Oscar Munoz said "I deeply apologize" that a doctor was violently removed from an overbooked flight. David Dao was seen bloodied and dragged from the plane in viral video footage.
Lawyers for David Dao, the passenger who sustained injuries when he was dragged off a United flight, will probably sue the airline. United has been scrambling to recover after a video of the incident went viral.
United Airlines is investigating the forceful removal of a man from one of its planes after one of its domestic flights was oversold. The police officer who dragged the passenger along the aisle has been suspended.
