By 11th April 2017 0 Comments


United Airlines is making headlines again after drawing ire just two weeks ago.

The airline’s CEO apologized on Monday after a disturbing video surfaced showing a man getting forcibly dragged out of his seat by three security guards. The viral video ignited a social media uproar from Hollywood figures, media personalities, and Twitter users alike.

Passenger Audra D. Bridges posted a video on Facebook in which a man can be heard screaming as guards grab and pull him across the aisle by his arms. A passenger says, “Please, my God. What are you doing? No. This is wrong. Oh my God. Look at what you did to him,” as the United workers carry on.
United CEO Oscar Munoz released a statement on the airline’s official Twitter account on Monday saying that the incident would be reviewed and the passenger would be contacted to “address and resolve this situation.”

“This is an upsetting event to all of us here at United,” Munoz said in the statement. “I apologize for having to re-accommodate these customers. Our team is moving with a sense of urgency to work with the authorities and conduct our own detailed review of what happened. We are also reaching out to this passenger to talk directly to him and further address and resolve this situation.”
