What next for United? Scorpion stings passenger on flight

What next for United? Scorpion stings passenger on flight

Passengers searching for flights will no longer see United on Google Search, Google Flights, Kayak and Expedia, according to the extension's website, which doesn't say who created the tool.

Dao's daughter, Crystal Dao Pepper, told the news conference that the family was "horrified, shocked and sickened" by what happened to her father.

Demetrio said the passenger, 69-year-old David Dao, has a serious concussion, a broken nose, injury to the sinuses, and lost two front teeth as a result of the incident, adding the passenger also has psychological injuries because the rudeness of the treatment by security officials, Xinhua news agency reported.

"He has no interest in ever seeing an airplane", Demetrio said of his client.

Dao was removed from the plane after he refused to give up his seat on the full flight from Chicago to Louisville to make room for four crew members.

Dao's lawyers hold a press conference, saying Dao suffered a concussion and promising to file a lawsuit.

Thomas A. Demetrio, Chicago aviation attorney and co-founder of Corboy & Demetrio who represents Dao family, speaks during a news conference at Union League Club in Chicago, Illinois, April 13.

"Will there be a lawsuit?"

In the future, law enforcement officers will not be involved in removing a "booked, paid, seated passenger", Munoz said.

Microsoft is announcing something big on May 2
While there are no other details included in the invite they do use one hashtag on the graphic - #MicrosoftEDU. But my sources now tell me that a Surface Pro revision won't be part of the event either.

To be rested Monday vs. Heat
Many of them blamed the refs for some questionable calls at the end of regulation and in overtime. I like the Cavaliers to not only cover the spread in this game, but to win it outright.

Tim Terrific: Tebow homers in 1st AB as Mets minor leaguer
The Fireflies continue their opening homestand with a three-game set against the Hickory (North Carolina) Crawdads on Monday. He told reporters after the game that he wasn't aware he'd hit a homer until the umpire told him to "keep going".

"[It] felt like a wasp sting", recalled Richard Bell, who was returning home with his wife, Linda, following a two-week vacation in Mexico.

For Dao, who came to the USA after fleeing Vietnam by boat in 1975 when Saigon fell, being dragged off the plane "was more horrifying and harrowing than what he experienced in leaving Vietnam", Demetrio said.

Dao's legal team filed documents on Wednesday to preserve key materials related to the incident, including the crew list, explanations of company policy and pertinent aviation-police files. "[.] Just because United is responsible doesn't mean the city of Chicago isn't also responsible".

United shares dropped 4 percent immediately after the incident and rebounded slightly to remain down less than 1 percent.

Mr Munoz has sought in the last two days to make amends. Like you, I continue to be disturbed by what happened on this flight and I deeply apologize to the customer forcibly removed and to all the customers aboard. The airline said it has reached out to the customer to apologize for the incident.

John Slater, United's Vice President of the airline's Chicago hub, came to City Hall to offer an apology for a debacle seen countless times via social media. That incident also occurred on Sunday. Dao eventually was led off the plane on a stretcher.

A Chicago alderman says city-employed airport security officers "should not be doing the dirty work for the friendly skies airline". Zalewski said airport officers receive four months of training compared with the six months cadets must complete before joining the city's police department.

"United is looking at a legal claim, but they're also looking at a huge public relations and business problem", said Justin Green, a partner at the law firm Kreindler & Kreindler in NY who represents airline passengers.

"I think United, if they're smart, will quickly and quietly settle the case". "This could never, would never happen again on a United Airlines flight", he told ABC News' Good Morning America.
