United Airlines Drags Passenger off Overbooked Flight
Transcript of United Airlines Drags Passenger off Overbooked Flight
A handful passengers on board captured the scene on their phones, which shows Dr. Dao being forcibly removed from his seat and dragged down the aisle. The videos were posted to social media and created an uproar for United Airlines.
Some clips appear to show that the man was left bleeding from the head after his face was smashed against an armrest during the scuffle.
CEO Public Apology
"The truly horrific event that occurred on this flight has elicited many responses from all of us: outrage, anger, disappointment. I share all of those sentiments, and one above all: my deepest apologies for what happened. Like you, I continue to be disturbed by what happened on this flight and I deeply apologize to the customer forcibly removed and to all the customers aboard. No one should ever be mistreated this way,"
- Oscar Munoz
