United passenger: 'I'd rather go to jail' than leave flight willingly

"No one should be treated that way", he said.

"[He] just repeats, saying, 'I've got to get home, I've got to get home, I've got to get home, '" Bridges recalled. The 10 victims collectively received $75 million in a settlement.

Chicago Aviation Commissioner Ginger Evans will also speak.

Demetrio said a lawsuit was "likely" in the case.

"That is not who our family at United is", Munoz said. The airline has tried to contact him, unsuccessfully, Munoz said.

"It's not the way you wanted to travel, and I regret we didn't meet your expectations", the response read. "We want respect, and we want dignity", Demetrio said.

Munoz said he felt "shame and embarrassment" and vowed it would never happen again.


Pence lands in South Korea after North's failed launch
China has opposed the North's nuclear tests and missile launches as such attempts could provoke military clashes. Vice President Mike Pence landed in South Korea for talks on the North's increasingly defiant arms programme.

"To remove a booked, paid, seating passenger, we can't do that", he said.

"Obviously the damage to their reputation is done", said Eastwood, of Barrington.

It's never too late to do the right thing.

The backlash from the incident resonated around the world, with social media users in the United States, China and Vietnam calling for boycott of the No.3 USA carrier by passenger traffic and an end to the practice of overbooking flights. But it was her own run-in with an overbooked flight - she got bumped - that put her over the edge with the airline Wednesday morning.

"I won't go", Dao tells officers when they tell him he needs to leave the plane. "I probably am going to think twice before I fly United now, because my whole day got wasted".

Passengers in Houston and elsewhere vented their anger and disbelief Wednesday as United attempted save face during its public relations nightmare.

"It was a pretty rough way to handle somebody".

Quotes from North Korean official about tensions with US
Included among the equipment they might be drilling with is the Aegis anti-ballistic missile system. It would not be terribly hard to put the Punggye-ri test site within missile range.

"In today's world of social media, the airlines and all other businesses have to learn how to better handle any situation that is hard", he said. United Airlines had overbooked the flight and was asking four people to volunteer to give up their seats for four crew members. In an email to CNN affiliate WBBM, a United spokesperson wrote "All customers on flight 3411 from Sunday, April 9 are receiving compensation for the cost of their tickets".

Congressman Rick Larsen and Senator Maria Cantwell want answers about an incident where a United Airlines passenger was dragged from his seat. And then the passenger who was physically - and violently - removed from a flight Sunday when he refused to give up his seat for a crew-member.

The video also underscores a growing dilemma: From airlines to schools, police are called to deal with situations that in the past might have been handled without them, sometimes leading officers to respond with force far beyond the provocation.

"Ideally those conversations happen in the gate area", said United spokeswoman Megan McCarthy.

Few business seem to be more under the thumb of bean counters than the major USA airlines: Seats and leg room shrink, baggage fees are imposed and rudimentary comforts like a bag of peanuts or a beverage are either nonexistent or get you charged. "That is a policy that we absolutely have to look at". When nobody volunteered, the airline selected passengers at random. But since deviating from procedure can cause additional problems down the line, the airline is reviewing ways to help employees strike the right balance between sticking to the playbook and being flexible to solve a problem.

In the last two days after Sunday's incident went viral, may airlines have taken a shot at the USA carrier.
