United CEO won't add chairman title in 2018 as was planned

The airline's parent company, United Continental Holdings, said in a public filing Friday that Munoz asked that his employment agreement be changed to remove terms that would have made him chairman of the board of directors.

Munoz, a Mexican by origin, has already visited the Chinese consulate in Chicago, the city where the incident took place, to address the concerns of the Chinese community in the US.

It has been an interesting week for United Airlines that all started with a passenger not agreeing to leave flight 3411 voluntarily due to overbooking. "We find any further delay in getting necessary answers unacceptable".

"This includes examining how we move our crews, incentivize customer volunteers in these situations, handle oversold situations and work with airport authorities and local law enforcement moving forward", Munoz said in the letter.

After being named CEO in September 2015, Munoz has focused on improving United's tattered relations with labor unions.
