United CEO: Airline will no longer use police to remove passengers

Chicago's Aviation Department said on Wednesday that two more officers had been placed on leave in connection with the April 9 incident, during which airport security officers dragged Dao from his seat aboard a United jet headed for Louisville, Kentucky. This can never will never happen again on a United Airlines flight.

Lawyers for Dao filed an emergency request Wednesday in an IL court seeking to preserve surveillance videos, cockpit voice recordings, passenger and crew lists, and other materials related to United Flight 3411, Reuters reported.

Chicago Aviation Commissioner Ginger Evans will also speak. "But to just randomly say, 'You're getting off the plane, ' that was awful". "You have to ask whether. you really needed to use force when doing the airline's bidding".

About 40,000 passengers were involuntarily bumped from flights at the biggest carriers previous year, meaning they were reassigned after the familiar back-and-forth of gate agents calling out voucher amounts and asking for volunteers. All but Dao agreed to leave.

The video, taken by passenger Joya Cummings and uploaded to Facebook early Tuesday, shows a calm and restrained Dao. He appears relatively passive while being dragged.

"Once you're there, it becomes tough to disengage". Some people are getting a refund, others a travel voucher and still others air miles, depending on what they tell the airline they want. "Is there something else going on?" "They said they'd put me in cuffs if they had to". He described the removal by airport police as "truly horrific".

A video of the man being pulled from his seat after he refused to leave the full plane has been seen around the world and resulted in harsh criticism for United and Aviation Department police.

Housewife Wang Haiping, 44, said she sees frictions ahead as Trump seeks to maintain USA dominance over a rising China. North Korea now has the strength to "wipe out" the United States "in a moment" with an H-bomb, the editorial said.

In a letter to US Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, Gov. Christie said the practice needs to be suspended. We reached out to the airline and have not received a reply. "If a law is broken, then we will take action".

Additionally, new cell phone video shows Dao speaking on the phone as a Chicago Department of Aviation security officer tried to get him to leave the plane.

Chu said she did not know if the airline officials or officers felt "they could push this guy around to a greater extent because he's Chinese".

"They all have an incredible amount of common sense, and this issue could have been solved by that", he added. "This is on me".

"This was an abnormal situation because usually the computer's making the decision before everybody's on the plane", said Snyder. "The real question is, at what point did the airline think this is no longer their problem and turns this over to the police?"

President Donald Trump said it was "horrible" that Dr Dao was dragged off the flight, according to an interview from the Wall Street Journal.
