One step they've taken is a no-brainer: separating out the passengers with "flexible" travel plans who won't fight back if they're bumped.

Filed under: TravelViral: News

United Airlines changes its overbooking policy.

Little by little, they're making progress.

It was announced Friday that United Airlines has made changes to its overbooking policy as it relates to employees.

Now, a passenger can only be removed to accommodate a United crew member if it's absolutely imperative that the crew member make the flight in order to work another flight AND if the crew member arrives an hour before boarding.

In this way, passengers who have already been seated won't have to be removed. Instead, passengers might be kept from boarding at the gate or earlier.

TMZ reports there have also been some emails being exchanged today between higher-ups.

In one email, a Senior VP of In-Flight Service wrote:

no title

United Airlines is like, really, really sorry, you guys.

As you know, David Dao's legal reps and daughter, Crystal Pepper, held a lengthy press conference on Thursday addressing the doctor's plan of action after he was violently dragged off an overbooked flight on Sunday — and basically, a huge lawsuit is headed the defamed airline's way sooner rather than later.

In response to Thursday's media frenzy, the company released yet ANOTHER public statement apologizing for everything that went down, while summarizing the steps they're gonna take to get their shit together.

New Footage Of United Airlines Incident Surfaces As David Dao Demands The Airline Preserves ALL Evidence Relating To The Altercation!

no title

David Dao isn't planning on flying the friendly skies after getting dragged off of an airplane due to an overbooked flight.

Instead, the 69-year-old doctor is planning on taking United Airlines to court — and he's making sure the company has ALL the evidence related to Sunday's bloody altercation!

After lawyering up with two of Chicago's top attorneys, Dao made another legal move on Wednesday demanding United preserve everything involving the flight. This includes surveillance video, cockpit recording, the passenger list, crew list, and any relevant reports prepared by the airline.

The doctor and his legal team also want police documents pertaining to the incident, United's passenger-removing protocols, and the personnel files of the officers who "re-accommodated" Dao.

If the airline didn't already have enough baggage to handle, brand new footage of the incident has surfaced showing the moments leading up to the intense altercation.

The clip, recorded by fellow passenger Joya Griffin Cummings, shows a passenger identified as Dr. Dao speaking to security officials who are telling him to exit the overbooked plane. Dao says in the footage:

United CEO Says He Felt ‘Shame’ Watching Viral Video Of Bloodied Passenger In New Apology

Filed under: ViolenceTravelControversy

no title

In another effort to fight the backlash and outrage over the viral video of a man being dragged off a United Airlines' plane, CEO Oscar Munoz sat down for an interview with ABC News to share his "shame" over the situation.

As a little refresher, it wasn't until Tuesday afternoon that the CEO issued an apology after Dr. David Dao was violently removed from his seat on the Sunday flight. Prior to his latest statement, Oscar hardly sounded remorseful about having to "re-accomodate" the passenger.

Well, it sounds like he's had a change of heart, and wanted to share that during his first interview since the outrage. Explaining his reaction to the viral video, he stated:
