Delta Will Pay Up to $9950 to Bumped Passengers

Slater said that bumping passengers to accommodate airline employees happens infrequently and that federal guidelines

Several passengers on United flight 3411 from Chicago O'Hare International Airport to Louisville, Kentucky, captured video as a man was dragged off the plane by authorities after he apparently refused to leave from an overbooked flight.

At first, the airline asked for volunteers, offering $400 and then when that did not work, $800 per passenger to relinquish a seat.

These are some big increases, and would mean that the woman who made $11,000 in compensation for postponing and ultimately canceling her flights from NY to Florida last weekend could have made even more bank. United CEO Oscar Munoz initially tried to lay blame for the scuffle on Dao, who suffered a broken nose and a concussion, but later issued a series of public apologies amid the ensuing public relation crisis.

Four people died and dozens were injured when a lorry mowed down pedestrians in the heart of the Swedish capital on Friday. Soderberg said it was important that caregivers continue to give "long-term psychological support to those who need it".

United Airlines found itself on the defensive again on Friday after a passenger complained that a scorpion stung him during a flight from Texas, capping off a bruising week for the public image of the one of the world's largest carriers.

"United must be measured by more than this one incident on a single United Express flight", says the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) United master executive council in a statement on 13 April.

Obviously, United was in the wrong; the company had no legal right to remove Dao.

Damascus denied any involvement in the Idlib incident, while the Syrian army said it does not possess chemical weapons. The civil war is separate from the US-led effort against the Islamic State group in the north of the country.

United said it is reviewing its compensation policies. Munoz himself said on Wednesday that he had left a message for Dao. His lawyer said Dao and his family are preparing to sue United.

The three Chicago Department of Aviation officers have all been suspended, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration announced.

After the incident triggered global outrage, United Chief Executive Oscar Munoz apologized to Dao, his family and its customers, saying the carrier would no longer use law enforcement officers to remove passengers from overbooked flights.

The first quarter was the strongest for rig additions since the middle of 2011. However, this was up 29 cents from Friday when May was still the front-month.

JetBlue Airways said it has a long-standing policy not to overbook flights, and a spokesperson for Southwest Airlines said the company is now, and always, reviewing its policies.
