Canada, inspired by UA fracas, will set new overbooking rules

Doctor dragged of United flight has a history of conviction for drug-related offenses

United spokesperson Maddie King said in a statement to Fox News the airline "will be providing full compensation for the price of their ticket for all passengers on United Flight 3411".

Facebook/Audra DickersonA new video obtained by People Magazine shows an exchange the police had with the passenger they dragged off a United Airlines flight.

US Senator Chris Van Hollen, a Maryland Democrat, announced plans for the Customers Not Cargo Act, which would prohibit the forcible removal of passengers already aboard an aircraft "due to overbooking or airline staff seeking to fly as passengers".

Several videos of the indecent have resulted in a public outcry against United and Chicago airport security, who says they have placed the officer in question on leave pending an internal investigation.

Christie did say that despite his frustration with United, he'll likely use the airline again in the future. Meanwhile, United Airlines CEO defended their employee who forced Dr. Dao off the flight, which caused negative responses and caused the company's stocks to drop.

This reportedly includes "all surveillance videos, cockpit voice recordings, passenger and crew lists, incident reports and other items".

When United Airlines needed extra seats on its plane Sunday night, the airline bumped an unwilling passenger, whom authorities ultimately dragged - down the aisle - off the plane.

On Capitol Hill, powerful Republican and Democratic lawmakers denounced how Dao was treated and called for United to explain the situation.

The 69-year-old man who got hurt on the plane is still in the hospital in Chicago.

Demetrio said Dao was being held in a "secure location" and asked the media not to bother him.

Dao told WLKY on Tuesday that he is now recovering from his injuries.

Two more airport police officers involved in dragging a passenger off a United Express flight at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport have been placed on leave.

No one volunteered, despite United's offers of up to $800. "No one should ever be mistreated this way", Munoz said. By Tuesday afternoon, nearly two days after the Sunday evening events, Munoz issued another apology.

No passengers on the plane have mentioned that Dao did anything but refuse to leave the plane when he was ordered to do so. The officer responds, "Well, we'll have to drag you".
