Videos from United Airlines Flight Incident May Violate Rules

In the skit, Hype, who plays both a passenger and a United Airline crewmember, reacts by saying it will be "pure bacchanal" if someone tried to remove a West Indian from the flight.

United Airlines will no longer allow crew members to displace passengers who are already seated on a plane.

Many people called for boycotting United Airlines during their public relations nightmare last week, but a recent poll shows why those calls are unlikely to become reality.

The new policy states that crew members can only be booked onto oversold flights 60 minutes or more before the flight is scheduled to depart. She said the change was meant to ensure that episodes like what happened last week "never happen again".

The treatment of Dao sparked global outrage, as well as multiple apologies from the carrier, and raised questions about overbooking policies of airlines.

When a United Airlines flight attendant approached them to ask if they were in their ticketed seats, they explained that they weren't and asked for an upgrade but were turned down.

American Airlines passenger planes are seen on the tarmac at Miami International Airport in 2015. "This is one of our initial steps in a review of our policies". However, Dr. Dao, refused to get off for reasons stated that he has to go to work and attend his patient. A day before releasing his statement, Munoz emailed all United employees and said he stood behind the security guards' actions. United Airlines spokesman Charlie Hobart said the airline sought volunteers to exit the flight for compensation, but none stepped forward.

On Monday, a bull introduced by a lawmaker, would make it illegal for the state of IL or local government employees to forcibly remove travelers from flights. The company's stock nosedived, and Munoz appeared a little slow to reach the proper level of outrage.

Attorney Thomas Demetrio said Dao would "probably" sue. Lawyers for the man, Dr. David Dao, said he suffered a concussion, broken nose, and lost teeth; he will be pursuing a lawsuit.
