Uproar after US police drag man off plane   

CHICAGO (AP) - Video of police officers dragging a passenger from an overbooked United Airlines flight at Chicago's O'Hare Airport sparked an uproar on April 10 on social media. United CEO Oscar Munoz apologized and promised such a removal would never happen again.

    In a video posted on Facebook by one of the passengers on the United Express flight to Louisville, Kentucky, on the night of April 9, officers could be seen grabbing the screaming man from a window seat, pulling him across the armrest and dragging him down the aisle by his arms.

    United said passengers were already seated when the four partner airline employees showed up at the gate and insisted on boarding the plane. The airline asked for volunteers, offering $400 at first, then $800 to give up their seats. When no one voluntarily came forward, United selected four passengers at random. Three people got off the flight, but the fourth refused to leave and three Aviation Department police officers got on the plane.

    The online storm began immediately after the video was posted. United parent company CEO Munoz apologized on April 10 for the incident, but also blamed the passenger for not obeying. Next day, he offered a stronger apology, and then in an interview with ABC aired on April 12, Munoz promised United would no longer ask police to remove passengers from full flights.
