United Changes Policy on Overbooking

n airline trying to shake a scandal is throwing cash after the problem.

United Airlines says it will give up to ten-thousand dollars to  passengers who volunteer to give up their seats on overbooked flights.  The offer is one of several changes the airline is making after a  passenger was dragged off a plane by security officers earlier this  month in Chicago. The air carrier says in a statement that it will no  longer require passengers who are already seated to give up their seats  on overbooked flights, and will no longer call law enforcement to deny  passengers boarding.

United received a firestorm of backlash after a viral video showed 69-year-old Dr. David Dao getting yanked from his seat before takeoff to make room for crew members.
