United: Airline will not use police to remove passengers

NEW video recorded on board a United Airlines aircraft shows the moments that led to a passenger being violently dragged from the overbooked flight.

In the future, law enforcement will not be involved in removing a 'booked, paid, seated passenger, ' Mr Munoz said.

The leaked footage surfaced on internet showing the brutality of United Airlines' staff in removal of their passenger to accommodate their own official, evoked several responses over the social media. Munoz profusely apologized to the passenger, his family, passengers, the airline's customers.

United Airlines' chief executive has said he will not quit amid an explosive backlash to video of a screaming man being dragged off a plane.

United passenger David Dao, 69, was forcibly removed from Flight 3411 at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport on Sunday.

Lawyers for the passenger dragged from a United Airlines plane in Chicago filed an emergency request with an IL state court on Wednesday to require the carrier to preserve video recordings and other evidence related to the incident. "I am not going", Dao said.

Phil Neville: 'Zlatan Ibrahimovic has carried Manchester United'
Whoever we speak about will be in the headlines because he plays in Manchester United and obviously everybody wants to play. We gave away a poor goal and I thought we needed to get a lot closer. "It's good for him to have a rest", Mourinho said.

A video of Dao being pulled from his seat after he refused to leave the full plane has been seen around the world.

A group of 21 senators on Tuesday sent a letter to Munoz announcing plans to examine the incident, while New Jersey governor Chris Christie called for the US Department of Transportation to suspend airlines from overbooking flights pending a review.

"Watching this makes my blood boil, I'll never fly United Airlines", said one Facebook user, Anh Trang Khuya. This, the airline said, was in accordance with the airline's contract of carriage.

An online petition shows more than 30,000 signatures from people demanding the CEO of United Airlines resigns. The United CEO followed up with a second apology Tuesday.

The doctor's lawyer, Thomas Demetrio, said his client was still in a Chicago hospital last night being treated for his injuries.

The PR disaster seen around the world has led to widespread criticism of United Airlines, as well as almost $1bn getting wiped off the holding company's value after stock plummeted. But Dao told the airlines officials that he was a physician and needed to be in Kentucky to see patients on Monday.
