United Airlines says it will compensate the cost of tickets for every passenger on Flight 3411, where a man was forcibly removed and dragged earlier this week, according to CNBC.
The news follows a second statement from United CEO Oscar Munoz, in which he said that “no one should ever be mistreated this way” - a pivot from his Monday statement. In the latter, Munoz said the passenger was “disruptive and belligerent.”

The family of the passenger who was dragged, Dr. David Dao, issued a statement of their own on Tuesday to express their appreciation for “the outpouring of prayers, concern and support they have received.”
