United changes crew booking policy after passenger dragged off plane
The move comes less than a week after Dr. David Dao was captured being dragged off a United Airlines flight on a cellphone after refusing to give up his seat for a United Airlines crew member.
United Airlines had issued a new policy change that would require its staff to check into flights one hour before departure, local media reported on Saturday.
Delta Air Lines is moving to make it easier to find customers willing to give up their seats.
United Airlines announced that it will refund the tickets for customers who were aboard the flight when a passenger was removed.
While the United case may not have been triggered by a normal case of overbooking, it is pushing airlines to evaluate their current systems, Harteveldt said.
"I can absolutely see other airlines following suit", he told The Independent. Dr. David Dao was one of four people randomly chosen to be bumped from United flight 3411 out of O'Hare International Airport so that airline employees could fly.
None would describe their limits on paying passengers. While that may seem like a big number, it's actually a tiny fraction (about.0062%) of the 823 million passengers who flew with United States airlines previous year.
Delta has reviewed its incentive policy to persuade passengers to give up their seats.

The doctor dragged off a United plane in scenes which created global outrage was further insulted when the airline withheld his luggage, sending it on a convoluted path home.
Ben Schlappig, a travel blogger who first wrote about the Delta compensation increase, said it shows Delta is trying to reduce forced bumping. "They have treated us less than maybe we deserve". Southwest Airlines paid $758, United $565, and American Airlines $554.
This policy came under fire nearly a week ago after a passenger was taken from his seat and dragged off a flight that was getting ready to leave Chicago O'Hare International Airport and travel to Louisville, Kentucky.
