United Airlines makes policy change regarding passengers getting bumped from flights

Dao was forcibly removed from a fully-booked United Express flight out of O'Hare International Airport on Sunday to make room for crew members.

A Southwest spokeswoman said the airline is reviewing its procedures and policies after the recent industry developments.

"For a long time, airlines - United in particular - have bullied us". Airline officials later clarified that the flight wasn't overbooked, but that it needed four seats for off-duty crew who needed to fly to Louisville. "But with all the bad press United is getting from this, do I think they would pursue anything? No".

As you will read, this situation was unfortunately compounded when one of the passengers we politely asked to deplane refused and it became necessary to contact Chicago Aviation Security Officers to help. Dao doesn't remember exactly what occurred because of the concussion he suffered, Demetrio said. The first videos of the passenger's removal showed law enforcement dragging him off the plane. The airline offered compensation to all customers on board last Sunday's United Flight 3411. That increased to 79 percent among those who indicated they had heard about the United incident recently, while it was about evenly split among those who hadn't.
