They want to know more about why and how Chicago Department of Aviation Police dragged Kentucky doctor David Dao off the Chicago-to-Louisville flight on April 9 after the airline involuntarily bumped him and three other passengers to accommodate airline employees. On the call, Chief Executive Officer Oscar Munoz said he would have "further conversations with customers and related governmental officials" in an upcoming trip to China that had been planned prior to the incident.
Many lawmakers fly home almost every week while Congress is in session, so the United incident hit a raw nerve.
After the controversial decision to forcibly remove a boarded passenger from Flight 3511, United Airlines has changed their policy with respect to overbooked flights.
Last week's passenger-dragging incident on a United Airlines flight is about to be scrutinized by Congress.
Those results give the airline "a lot of confidence about the foundation we're building", Munoz said.
He had initially said, in an internal email later leaked to journalists, that Dao had been "disruptive and belligerent" and staff were "left with no choice".
United Airlines' CEO said Tuesday that no one at the airline will be fired in what's perhaps the biggest PR blunder in the carrier's long history.

A Farmington, New Hampshire, songwriter even posted a music video on YouTube called, " I'm Going Crazy Waiting (For A Giraffe )". According to the Associated Press , a live stream of April's enclosure has been streaming since February.
He was asked if the company ever considered firing anyone, including management.
Munoz: There certainly has been some sentiment, and I did visit with the Chinese consulate here locally to discuss that with them.
Last week saw a video going viral of David Dao on social media.
Dr Dao's lawyers have taken preliminary steps to begin a lawsuit against United Airlines and the city of Chicago, which operates O'Hare Airport.
Some politicians and consumer advocates have called for a ban on overselling flights.
United President Scott Kirby said some of the airline's corporate clients had "appropriate questions" about the incident. He again apologized to Dao and termed the episode "a humbling learning experience", pledging that United would take pains to ensure better relations with passengers. The consensus estimate of 17 analysts surveyed by FactSet for United's full-year earnings has risen by 3 cents a share since the Dao incident.
