Rep. Lipinski Welcomes United Airlines' Policy Changes; Calls on Other Airlines to Follow Suit (April 27, 2017)

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) issued the following statement today:

“I welcome United’s new passenger policy as progress in improving the treatment of their flying customers.  I encourage all airlines to follow United’s lead and institute policies such as these and others that better protect their passengers.

“However, I am hopeful that this is not the end of improvements by airlines in their treatment of passengers.  I still have a number of questions that I intend to ask airline representatives, including United’s CEO Oscar Munoz, who will testify at next week’s hearing before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.  

“As a senior member of the Aviation Subcommittee of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I will continue to work to ensure better treatment of airline passengers.  I look forward to next week’s hearing so we can learn more about what further actions need to be taken.”
