United: No One Will be Fired for

United has been under fire since video went viral showing security personnel dragging battered and bloodied passenger David Dao off an overbooked Chicago flight to make room for an airline employee.

A spokesman for the House of Representatives panel did not say who the committee plans to call as witnesses. United also faces a Thursday deadline from the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee to answer detailed questions about the incident.

Dao suffered a concussion, a broken nose and lost two teeth in the incident when Chicago aviation police dragged him off the flight, according to his lawyer Thomas Demetrio. "It's about values, human values", Munoz said.

On a conference call to discuss those results, Munoz started by apologising again for the April 9 scene on a United Express plane at Chicago's O'Hare airport.

Company executives said it's too soon to know if the incident is hurting ticket sales. The company's first-quarter profits outperformed the expectations of financial analysts, and Munoz said it gave the carrier "a lot of confidence" going forward, the Tribune reports.

Nobody at United Airlines will lose their job over an incident where a passenger was left with injuries while being forcibly removed from his seat. And as Munoz has repeatedly done in recent days, he apologized to customers and said he took full responsibility for what happened on Flight 3411, including the forcible eviction of David Dao.

Mr Munoz declined to address that or other possible changes until the airline finishes a review by April 30. Munoz repeated his apology Tuesday to Dao, other passengers on the flight and the rest of the airline's customers.

The airline had already said it would change policies to never have law enforcement called to remove a passenger unless they were a threat to safety. The reported earnings per share were down from $1.23 booked in the first period a year ago.

'It's never too late to do the right thing, ' a statement from Munoz read. Dao emigrated to the United States from Vietnam.

United's earnings for the first three months of the year bested analyst projections, earning 41 cents per share, excluding one-time items, versus an expected 38 cents.
