United Airlines passenger dragged from plane: 'everything' is injured

  • Number of passengers who hold confirmed reservations and are denied boarding from a flight because it is oversold

No one should ever be mistreated this way.

Outrage spread to Vietnam on Wednesday over United Airlines' handling of a passenger dragged from his seat after it emerged that the 69-year-old USA doctor was Vietnamese by birth. The Associated Press also confirmed that Dao is the man in the video.

Dao's lawyer said that the doctor, a father of five, is recovering from his injuries at a Chicago hospital.

Kentucky's medical board website shows that a doctor David Dao graduated in 1974 in Ho Chi Minh City - then known as Saigon and the capital of USA -backed South Vietnam before its defeat and the reunification of Vietnam under communist rule a year later.

Emirates has waded into the furore surrounding the incident that saw a passenger on a United Airline flight dragged through the aisle after being bloodied by an aviation security officer. "That is not who our family at United is", he said.

On Tuesday night, the CEO of United Airlines finally said sorry to Dao.

Munoz continued: "The truly horrific event that occurred on this flight has elicited many responses from all of us: outrage, anger, disappointment".

"I think this man is being seen as a hero and I can see why because passengers have just been treated like garbage so he's finally standing up for, you know, consumer rights".

Too disturbed by what he had witnessed, Powell said he grabbed his students and walked off the plane. "I told the officer, we'll be back when you handle this".

Technically, passengers are legally required to follow the orders of the captain when they are ordered off a plane. We'll communicate the results of our review by April 30th.

He added: "I promise you we will do better".

A spokesman for President Donald Trump says it was "troubling" to watch the video. Christie's state has a special interest in United's practices because he said the airline controls 70% of the flights at Newark Liberty International Airport. Videotape of the confrontation spread across social media. United was trying to make room for four employees of a partner airline, meaning four people had to get off.

Federal rules require that before airlines can bump passengers from a flight they must seek volunteers - the carriers generally offer travel vouchers. United has not said precisely how the four people asked to leave Flight 3411 were selected.

Three agreed to leave their seats but Dao refused, telling flight attendants he could not afford to be rebooked because he had patients to see the next day. He refused to leave.

That's when three Aviation Department police officers boarded the plane. "This is wrong", "Look at what you did to him" and "Busted his lip". While we don't take a stand one way or the other when it comes to these news events, we do work to remove both positive and negative posts that appear to be motivated more by the news coverage itself than the reviewer's personal consumer experience with the business. "We were stuck there".
