10,000 dollars for passengers to give up seats

United Airlines will offer passengers up to $10,000 (£7,700) for giving up their seats on overbooked flights, as part of efforts to repair the damage to its reputation after widespread condemnation over the forcible removal of a passenger.

An inquiry was launched after footage recorded by passengers at Chicago O’Hare airport and watched by millions globally showed David Dao, 69, being yanked from his seat on a Louisville-bound flight to make room for crew.

According to his lawyer, Dao lost two front teeth, incurred concussion and broke his nose. The Vietnamese American physician found the experience “more horrifying and harrowing” than the fall of Saigon, his lawyer said.
