United Airlines says it will testify at House hearing

United Airlines says it will testify at House hearing

The overbooking of a flight was at the heart of a recent controversy involving United Airlines, which has been heavily criticized after a passenger on one of its flights from Chicago to Louisville, Kentucky, was dragged from the plane. United did not say when Munoz met with the Chinese consulate officials.

United Airlines published first-quarter financial results on April 17, posting its first-quarter net income at 96 million dollars, diluted earnings per share at 0.31 dollars, pre-tax earnings at 145 million dollars and pre-tax margin at 1.7 percent.

In the week since United Airlines made headlines when a ticketed passenger was aggressively hauled off his flight, the company has updated its crew travel policies to ensure passengers won't get booted and compensated all travelers on the fateful fight. Munoz declined to say whether the airline would end overbooking sales until the comprehensive review is completed. So no, there was never a consideration for firing an employee.

Asked if there was a drop in bookings from China, where video of the incident provoked widespread outrage, Kirby said it's too early to say because there are too few days to measure possible changes. In an email to United personnel, he labeled Dao "disruptive and belligerent" and insisted: "I emphatically stand behind all of you".

"It was a system failure", he said.

Dao's lawyers have taken steps that foreshadow a lawsuit against the airline and the city of Chicago, which operates O'Hare Airport.

United has repeatedly apologized for the incident and announced two rule changes last week, including saying that it will no longer call police to remove passengers from overbooked planes.

And some United States politicians have called for a total ban on overselling flights.

"It's really too early for us to tell anything about bookings, and in particular last week because it's the week before Easter", he said.

"The incident has been a humbling learning experience for all of us here at United", he said.

Munoz said that the response to a letter that the CEO sent to a group of United's "most loyal customers" was positive.

Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk. They want us to do the right thing.
