David Dao Settlement

David Dao, the Kentucky doctor who was seen being dragged off a United Airlines jet this month has reportedly reached a settlement with the airline.

The amount of the settlement remains undisclosed. 

According to Dao’s attorney, he suffered a concussion, a broken nose, injuries to his sinuses requiring surgery and lost two front teeth, the most significant question in terms of assessing damages is whether he will suffer long-term health consequences.

The April 9 episode sparked an international outrage and had raised fears and frustration for airplane passengers throughout the world.

It also created a public relations nightmare for the airline carrier.

According to sources, both sides welcomed what they hoped would be the end of the ordeal.

ANOTHER UNITED NIGHTMARE: Airlines Cremated Bunny Without Permission

The owner of the giant rabbit who died in the care of United Airlines last Tuesday says the scandal-scarred airline cremated her bunny’s remains so she would never know the truth about how it died.

“The whole thing stinks of a cover-up,” breeder Annette Edwards, 65, told The Sun.

“I had been asking United over and over again for his body so that I can have him examined here in Britain but they never got back to me. All I want to know is how he died.”

Edwards, a UK rabbit breeder, was flying the 3-foot-long Continental Giant rabbit, dubbed Simon, from London to Chicago’s O’Hare Airport to deliver him to his new owner in the US when he inexplicably kicked the bucket.

United claimed the rabbit was alive when it was taken out of the cargo section of a Boeing 767.

The airline’s CEO, Oscar Munoz, tried to apologize after the rabbit’s death, but drew fire for likening the pet to misplaced bags.

“We are deeply sorry for the loss of anything from your luggage to, of course, a loved pet,” Munoz said.

United, which has been fending off PR nightmares left and right in recent weeks, told Edwards on Friday there could be no autopsy because the animal had been incinerated, the Sun reported.
