  • United CEO to 'Good Morning America': 'This Is On Me

Chris Christie has called for a suspension to the widespread practice of overbooking.

But if the passenger posed no threat and was not being disruptive, officers nearly certainly could have tried an approach other than dragging him out of his seat and down the aisle, including simply telling the airline to resolve the situation itself, experts said.

Munoz vowed this "will never happen again on a United flight" and that law enforcement won't be involved in future. "With United, the customer is always last".

In his most contrite apology yet, Oscar Munoz said no one should be mistreated that way. On Monday, his tone turned defensive. And you saw us at a bad moment. In an exclusive interview on 'Good Morning America, ' United CEO Oscar Muñoz issued a public apology and pledged to make the situation right. They could have gotten a vehicle for their employees because Louisville really isn't that far from Chicago. Passengers said blood dripped from his mouth after he hit his head on an armrest.

Now, Munoz said he is shouldering the blame for his employees' apparent lack of "common sense". Probably the word shame comes to mind. That man later said he quit his job because Dao "pursued him aggressively" and arranged to provide him with prescription drugs in exchange for sex.

In a news release, the attorneys say they plan to talk to the media and that they will be accompanied by a relative of Dr. David Dao.

More than 90 percent of passengers bumped from a flight on a major U.S. airline past year volunteered, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. United did not return CNN's request for comment.

Since the video has gone viral and sparked controversy over how airlines treat their passengers, competitors Emirates and Royal Jordanian Airlines did not hesitate to throw major shade at United.

Dao and his wife initially agreed to get off the plane, passenger Jayse Anspach said.

"He was very emphatic: 'I can't be late".

"I'm a physician, [I] have work tomorrow".

After the video first emerged, he said the airline was reaching out to the man to "resolve this situation".

Dao was selected by the airline to give up his seat but refused, leading to the actions by the three officers. "No one should be treated that way". Another video showed the clearly-disturbed man back on the plane, with blood around his mouth and repeating, "Just kill me".

None of the officers, who are represented by Service Employees International Union 73, have been identified by city officials.

Dao told WLKY that "everything" was injured following the incident, in which his face was bloodied during his forced removal from the aircraft Sunday evening.

The Dao family issued a statement expressing gratitude for the "outpouring of support".

United's CEO has apologized for the incident.

"My new #united card". But the company said his base salary was $1.25 million.

Anyone can be kicked off an overbooked flight against their will.

An Aviation Department spokeswoman did not respond to questions about the duties of the aviation police force, but Zalewski said the agency's commissioner will be asked that on Thursday.

At first, the airline asked for volunteers, offering $400 and then when that did not work, $800 per passenger to relinquish a seat. "This is wrong", "Look at what you did to him" and "Busted his lip".

In a letter to US Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, Gov. Christie said the practice needs to be suspended. Christie, a Republican, said bumping passengers off flights is "unconscionable".
