Lawyer: Dragged passenger 'poster child' for airline abuses
"This lawsuit, among other things, hopefully, will create a not just national discussion, but worldwide discussion, on how we're going to be treated going forward", Demetrio said. Dao was not there.
And whether consumers choose United matters not just to the airline, but to communities such as ours where United Express welcomes passengers aboard daily flights from the Quad City International Airport to Chicago and Denver.
"Seeing it on video made those emotions exacerbated", said Dao's daughter, Crystal Pepper.
Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky of IL said she would author a bill to end the practice of airlines denying boarding to passengers on overbooked flights.
Demetrio said Dao had told him that being dragged down the plane aisle was more terrifying than his experience fleeing Vietnam in the 1970s.
Given the wide public outrage over the incident, Dao is in a strong position as he prepares to launch a legal action, lawyers who represent airlines and passengers said. No one should ever be mistreated this way.
Meanwhile, officials from United Airlines and Chicago Aviation Department are being questioned.
In a hurried reaction Monday after backlash mushroomed on social media, United CEO Oscar Munoz apologized "for having to re-accommodate these customers" - further exasperating the denizens of the online community.

Attorney Thomas Demetrio also said neither Dao nor his family had heard directly from United since the incident. Four of their five children also are physicians, Demetrio said.
The attorney was unable to say precisely how Dao was injured. Dao didn't remember exactly what occurred because of the concussion he suffered, Demetrio said.
She said what happened to her father "should have never happened to any human being, regardless of the circumstance".
United had selected Dr Dao and three other passengers at random for removal from the plane after unsuccessfully offering $800 (£640) in travel vouchers and a hotel stay to customers willing to give up their seats.
John Fuller of Fairfax, Virginia, described a chaotic - and bloody - scene as aviation security officers tried to remove Dao from the plane.
Dao's lawyer said earlier Thursday that Dao suffered a concussion and broken nose when airport officers employed by the city dragged him from the plane to make room for United crew members.
Online videos captured on mobile phones by passengers on the flight show Dao manhandled by airport law enforcement on a United Airlines flight from Chicago, Illinois, to Louisville, Kentucky.
Jeff Redding, the deputy commissioner of security for the aviation department, said officers are instructed not to board planes unless there's an imminent threat.
