Quite frankly a substantial amount was needed to effect the sea change needed in passenger treatment by airlines in America. I would imagine Munoz (he lost the upcoming Chairmanship position already) would want to take charge and put this thing to bed ASAP.


The amount has to have been large for Dao's lawyers to stop all other action against everyone else they could have charged.

Munoz did the right thing here, to have United take the fall on behalf of everyone else.

United was in a "no win" situation that could have only gotten worse as the wound got deeper and deeper and more infected.

United didn't have the first punch advantage
I guess not - that accolade must go to the 'security' people who decided physical violence was the way to sort it out!

and how is he going to spend his windfall???? At 69 (?) his options are a bit limited.
I take exception to that. I'm 70, feeling happier and fitter that I have done for a long time, and expect to have many more years yet.

I too am 70. Given such luck I would spend the dosh on having all that skin stretch and bootox business,a set of brand new shining teg implants, Sinatra style hair implants, finish the whole thing off with one of those magnificent sculptured noses and get rid of the scaramouche thing I`ve got. Then get a sculpture made of my bootful body in the starkers and have it planted right there in the middle of every airport terminal in the US.
