United Airlines, Chicago agree to preserve evidence in dragged passenger incident

United Airlines, Chicago agree to preserve evidence in dragged passenger incident

One policy change implemented is for all staff, including off-duty crew flying to another location for work, to now check in for flights one hour before scheduled departure.

The treatment of Dao sparked worldwide outrage, as well as multiple apologies from the carrier, and raised questions about the overbooking policies of airlines. That increased to 79 percent among those who indicated they had heard about the United incident recently, while it was about evenly split among those who hadn't.

Lawyers for Dao have moved to preserve evidence from the flight, filing a motion to keep surveillance videos and other materials related to United Flight 3411 in preparation for a possible lawsuit.

"A commercial airline that removes validly seated customers without serious cause breaches the sacred trust between passengers and their airlines", the bill said.

United Kingdom to hold snap general election in June: PM May
According to the British leader, the only way of assuring stability during the upcoming years is to organize the snap election. Corbyn welcomed the election plan. "I look forward to spreading Labour's positive message on the doorstep".

Passenger revenue for each seat flown a mile will rise by 1 percent to 3 percent in the current quarter, United said. The case, however, highlighted the common practice by airlines to sell more tickets than available seats. When the American flight was both more expensive and included a layover, 65 percent said they would choose United.

Delta chief executive Edward H. Bastian said in an earnings call last Wednesday that there's no need for "additional legislation" to address concerns about the practice. The National Consumers League last week blamed the United incident on a lack of competition in the American airline industry.

"I don't think it's a significant challenge for us". While people overwhelmingly chose American over United when conditions were the same, small adjustments in the flights gave United much better odds. The airline wants to ensure that an incident like Dao's doesn't happen again.

Representatives for United Airlines and the city's Law Department did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment on the agreement. As United flights got cheaper or shorter, about 8 in 10 said they'd take United.
