United CEO got $18.7 million in compensation

United CEO got $18.7 million in compensation

In a reversal of Munoz's earlier employment agreement, he has opted to leave "future determinations related to the Chairman position to the discretion of the Board", the filing said.

United said Munoz initiated the change to his contract that granted him the chairmanship in 2018.

United Airlines and Chicago airport officials missed a deadline for answering questions from by key USA senators about the dragging incident aboard a United Express plane. Their deadline passed Thursday.

Oscar Munoz, the CEO of United Airlines, apparently won't become the chairman of the company as planned.

Oscar Munoz says he felt "ashamed" when hearing about the violent removal of a passenger from an overbooked flight and promised the situation will never happen again.

The Chicago Department of Aviation also requested more time to answer questions about the incident.

The move comes almost two weeks after a United passenger was violently dragged off a flight in order to make room for airline personnel.

The 69-year-old man who was dragged off the plane said he suffered a significant concussion and is planning on suing United. No passengers voluntarily agreed to cash payments to give up their seats, and the airline then chose four passengers to be taken off the plane.
