United’s skies are continuing to look overcast.
Responding to backlash from a now-viral video in which a passenger was dragged off a United flight after refusing to give up his seat, United Airline’s chief executive, Oscar Munoz, issued another apology on Tuesday.
Here’s the full text of his latest mea culpa:
A message from Oscar: I’m sorry. We will fix this.
The truly horrific event that occurred on this flight has elicited many responses from all of us: outrage, anger, disappointment. I share all of those sentiments, and one above all: my deepest apologies for what happened. Like you, I continue to be disturbed by what happened on this flight and I deeply apologize to the customer forcibly removed and to all the customers aboard. No one should ever be mistreated this way.
I want you to know that we take full responsibility and we will work to make it right.
