Delta OKs $10000 Payments To Passengers On Overbooked Flights
As a result, it had the lowest rate among the largest US airlines of bumping people off flights against their will - something that is legal but alienates customers and requires the airline to pay compensation of up to $1,350 per person.
United Airlines crew members will no longer be able to bump a passenger who is already seated in one of the airline's planes.
United has accepted responsibility for the incident, including refunding the fares of all passengers on the flight and changing its policies regarding removing passengers from aircraft. He also indicated that Dao will be suing the airline and the city of Chicago, which employs the airport police who dragged Dao down the aisle, his face bloody.
Many airlines operating at British airports overbook to mitigate the losses made when passengers cancel or fail to show up for their seats. The airline also said all passengers on the flight would get a refund.

'Millions' of Microsoft Word users hit with banking virus exploiting unpatched vulnerability
An unpatched vulnerability in Microsoft Word is being exploited to forward Dridex malware to millions of unsuspecting users. The new vulnerability bug of Microsoft said to be a unsafe malware attack, according to McAfee anti-virus company.
Several passengers captured the manhandling on video, which immediately went viral.
Over 150,000 people have signed an online petition calling for United boss Oscar Munoz to be sacked after he initially claimed in an email to staff Dr Dao had been disruptive and belligerent. The company has taken one step, modifying its overbooking policy in the wake of the public-relations nightmare.
Delta no doubt hopes that gate agents and their supervisors won't need to make maximum offers, and the financial cost to the airline is likely to be limited.
Other airlines have not said whether they will increase their compensation limits to displaced passengers. If Delta paid $9,950 to every person it bumped involuntarily previous year, that would total $12 million.
