United misses deadline to answer senators on dragging

United Airlines said it no longer plans to name chief executive Oscar Munoz chairman as it revised its compensation program following an uproar over its treatment of a passenger. The filing goes on to state that Munoz is leaving "future determinations related to the Chairman position to the discretion of the Board", the report added.

The same committee requested that the Chicago Department of Aviation, which employs the officers, respond to a separate list of queries by Thursday as well.

The decision to remove the provisions came less than two weeks after carrier was engulfed by a global public-relations crisis after the passenger's forced removal from a Chicago flight to Louisville, Kentucky.

United said in a securities filing that management and the board "take recent events extremely seriously", and will link executive bonuses partly to "progress toward improvements in the customer experience".

Emirates will comply with all USA security directives and is "not in a position to judge whether the United States are right or wrong", he said.

The airline has been under heavy scrutiny since video of the incident was shared worldwide.

Thomas Demetrio is attorney for David Dao, the passenger forcibly removed from a United Airlines flight earlier in April, speaks at a press conference on April 13, 2017.


On a conference call to discuss those results, Munoz started by apologizing again for the April 9 scene on a United Express plane at O'Hare Airport.

The Chicago Department of Aviation also requested more time to answer questions about the incident.

PPP polled 648 registered voters April 17-April 18 via phone calls and online.

Committee leaders said in a joint statement that getting answers about what happened and how to prevent a recurrence was a "priority" and any further delay was "unacceptable".

Also in the proxy, United outlined changes to its 2017 executive compensation program, tying it more closely to customer satisfaction.

The change was initiated by Mr Munoz, the company said.

Munoz took over as president and CEO of United in September 2015.
