United misses deadline to answer senators on dragging

"Flight 3411 has prompted a lot of discussion, and we share numerous concerns being raised", the company said in emailed comments. He was set to become chairman next year.

Munoz, a Mexican by origin, has already visited the Chinese consulate in Chicago, the city where the incident took place, to address the concerns of the Chinese community in the US.

Also this week, United Airlines and Chicago airport officials missed a deadline for answering questions from by key US senators about the dragging incident aboard a United Express plane.

Chicago aviation commissioner Ginger Evans asked to have until April 26 to answer questions.

United Airlines said it no longer plans to name chief executive Oscar Munoz chairman as it revised its compensation program following an uproar over its treatment of a passenger. "We find any further delay in getting necessary answers unacceptable". United now faces charges from the injured man and will be dealing with what they call a "systematic failure".

United shares fell 4.3 percent to $67.71 on Wednesday after sliding as much as 4.5 per cent.

After the market closed Monday, United reported a $96 million first-quarter profit, down 69 percent from a year earlier largely because of higher costs for fuel, labor and maintenance.

Two weeks after a passenger was violently dragged from one its planes, United Airlines says it is to link pay more closely to customer satisfaction.

Now-infamous video clips from the cell phones of several United Airlines Flight 3411 passengers began circulating across the internet by April 10. Initially, Mr. Munoz appeared to shift all responsibility to the paid passenger.

"It is well known that the Gulf carriers, including Emirates, lose money on most of their flights to the United States and are propped up by billions of dollars in government cash", she said in a statement. Contrary to actual video footage, Munoz categorized Dr. Dao as "disruptive" and "belligerent".

The United spokesperson declined to comment on whether the incident influenced the change to Munoz's employment agreement.
