The company has faced a heated backlash from customers, policymakers and the media after video footage surfaced of one passenger, Mr David Dao, being dragged from a United Airlines flight that officials falsely believes was overbooked.
Listing it a "system failure" at a conference call, Oscar Munoz said: "this is a true learning opportunity and will ultimately prove to be a watershed moment for our company as we work harder than ever to put our customers at the center of everything we do".
"You can and should expect more from us and as CEO I take full responsibility for making this right". He said the airline will have more to say later this month after it finishes a review of its policies on overbooked flights.
CEO Oscar Munoz made it clear in a quarterly earnings conference call Tuesday morning that he had noticed this element as well, telling reporters and analysts on the call that he visited the Chinese consulate in Chicago soon after the episode.
Dr David Dao, was forcibly removed from flight 3411 in Chicago and suffered a broken nose and concussion. He acknowledged "lots of conjecture" about his own fate at the nation's third-largest carrier and said "the buck stops here".
About the passenger-dragging incident, meanwhile, United executives said that they have fielded "appropriate questions and concerns" and are launching a review into what happened.
Since then, the airline has said it won't use law enforcement to drag people off flights anymore, has promised some kind of compensation for every passenger who was on the flight, and has changed its crew travel policies so passengers who have already boarded won't be booted from the seats they're in.
United's boss says nobody is getting fired at the embattled airline - including himself.
And some U.S. politicians have called for a total ban on overselling flights. Munoz repeated his apology Tuesday to Dao, other passengers on the flight and the rest of the airline's customers.
"It's really too early for us to tell anything about bookings, and in particular last week because it's the week before Easter", he said. He said that United's forecast for the April-through-June quarter has not changed.
But the United chief later shifted tone, telling a television interviewer last Thursday that he felt "shame" for the incident and hoped to speak personally with Dao.
Morningstar said, "The flight 3411 incident, while undoubtedly a public relations disaster, will most likely not materially affect United's medium- to long-term financial and operational performance".
Cowen & Co analyst Helane Becker echoed that sentiment in a client note on Tuesday: "So far there hasn't been a competitive response, but these are high-value business travelers we are speaking about".
