Lawyer: United will save evidence in dragged passenger case

Manuel Armenta | 16 Abril, 2017, 10:03

Last year Delta got more passengers to give up their seats than any other USA airline, partly by paying more than most of the others.

Meanwhile, Linda Bell said, a passenger gave him a Benadryl pill in case he had an allergic reaction to the sting.

Other airlines did not immediately comment on whether they would raise their ceiling. That cuts down the rate of involuntary bumping of passengers. Passengers had already boarded when four Republic crew members showed up, saying they needed to get to Louisville for another flight the next day. Adding that the change is "one of our initial steps in a review of our policies in order to deliver the best customer experience". Schmerin confirmed the authenticity of the published email. "We can't do that. this can never, will never happen again on a United Airlines flight... that's my promise". The passenger pulled from his seat is not; the man was effectively beaten up.

United Master Executive Council - the union that represents all of the airline's 12,500 pilots - released a public letter condemning what took place on on Flight 3411.

Dao was removed because there were not enough seats in the fully booked flight for four United employees to fly from Chicago, Illinois, to Louisville, Kentucky. When nobody offered, the airline randomly chose passengers. A video showing the passenger, David Dao, being forced out of his seat and dragged off the plane by security officials, went viral.

The firm, along with Chicago aviation attorney Thomas A. Demetrio of Corboy & Demetrio, is representing the Dao family. Two other officers have been placed on leave.

United CEO Oscar Munoz has twice apologized for the incident.

As a precaution, crews also checked the airplane for a possible infestation.

But he later struck a more contrite tone in a nationally televised interview. The incident had sparked outrage.

Mrs Bell told CNN that United reached out to her husband on Thursday to apologise and to offer compensation for the incident.

"I continue to be disturbed by what happened". Munoz says law enforcement won't be involved in removing passengers in the future.

"Corporations can treat you like shit because you'll eventually forget you were ever mad", the website states. It's never too late to do the right thing.

Delta said it is increasing the maximum incentive for volunteers to "reinforce our commitment to our agents and their ability to care for our customers", according to the memo. By Wednesday, the video had been deleted from Facebook.

A scorpion reportedly stung a woman in 2015 on an Alaska Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Portland, Oregon.

Dao's lawyer said he doesn't believe the incident was racially motivated and that it appears that airlines don't have standard procedures for kicking people off plane. He also said a civil lawsuit is likely.
