United says passengers on United Express Flight 3411 are getting compensation equal to the cost of their tickets.

United Airlines will no longer use law enforcement officers to remove passengers from overbooked flights after global outrage erupted over a video showing a passenger dragged from one of its planes in Chicago. The request comes just days after the world witnessed that now viral video of a doctor being forcibly dragged off a plane in Chicago to make room for a flight crew trying to get to Louisville.

"We're not going to put a law enforcement official.to remove a booked, paid, seated passenger", Mr Oscar Munoz told ABC News on Wednesday (April 12) morning.

Emirates has targeted the CEO, Oscar Munoz, directly by using a quote from last month against him -Munoz said that Persian Gulf-based airlines "aren't airlines" while criticizing the substantial subsidies they receive from their governments.

Dao, 69, is now still being treated at a local hospital in Chicago.

Speaking of his employees, Munoz said: "They all have an incredible amount of common sense, and this issue could have been solved by that".

"Any one of us could've been that person who was being hauled out of the, hauled out of the plane", Powell said. "I want you to know that we take full responsibility and we will work to make it right".

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

Speaking of which, that city-operated security force - which is not officially part of the Chicago Police Department - has also come under scrutiny for the way it handled the situation.

Munoz added, "The first thing is to apologize to Dr. Dao, his family, the passengers on his flight", he said. "I hope they resolve the problem", said traveler.

Newly surfaced video shows the heated back and forth that transpired between Dao and the officers when he was informed he'd been selected to forfeit his seat to United crew members.

By Tuesday afternoon, nearly two days after the Sunday evening events, Munoz issued another apology.

Likewise, the Chicago Aviation Department has said only that one of its employees who removed Dao did not follow proper procedures and has been placed on leave.
