After a 69-year-old doctor was chosen at random to be physically dragged off one of his company’s airplanes, and the Chicago Aviation Police Department placed a cop on administrative leave, and the Feds got involved, and a boycott was threatened, and he praised his employees for following “established procedures for dealing with situations like this,” United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz has finally — finally — apologized for what transpired on Flight 3411.
In unrelated news, United Airlines’ value as a company has dropped by more than $750 million in the past 24 hours. Again, a total coincidence.
“The truly horrific event that occurred on this flight has elicited many responses from all of us: outrage, anger, disappointment,” Munoz wrote. “I share all of those sentiments, and one above all: my deepest apologies for what happened… No one should ever be mistreated this way.”
