United Airlines CEO to Visit China to Reduce Tensions

BEIJING – The Chief Executive Officer of United Airlines is scheduled to visit China to fix the damage to the image of the airlines in the country following a recent scandal in which an Asian-origin male passenger was hauled off a UA flight, newspaper China Daily reported Thursday.

Given that UA controls 20 percent of the air traffic between the United States and China, CEO Oscar Muñoz’s visit is self-explanatory, added the daily, although it didn’t specify any dates for the visit.

Muñoz, a Mexican by origin, has already visited the Chinese consulate in Chicago, the city where the incident took place to address the concerns of the Chinese community in the US.

Several Chinese internet users had threatened to boycott the airlines over the incident were Vietnamese-origin passenger David Dao was dragged violently off a United Airlines flight on April 9 in order to make room for an airlines personnel.

The users had also posted photos online of their broken or cut UA membership cards as a sign of solidarity with Dao, who suffered substantial injuries, including nasal and cerebral contusions after being assaulted by the Chicago airport police and security officers.
