United Airlines Reaches Settlement With Passenger Dragged from Plane
United Airlines and Dr. David Dao, 69, have reached an “amicable” settlement after he was yanked from his seat aboard a Louisville, Kentucky-bound United flight before takeoff from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, Fortunereports.
The video which went viral showed that Dao was yanked to make room for crew members. Dao lost two front teeth in the scuffle, incurred a concussion and broke his nose.
According to his lawyer, Thomas A. Demetrio “Dr. Dao has become the unintended champion for the adoption of changes which will certainly help improve the lives of literally millions of travelers.”
