To Metrorail I would simply say, borrowing from United Airlines passengers: What are you doing to the poor? "The buck stops here".
The Chicago-based United Airlines is reviewing policies with regard to handling oversold flights to prevent similar incidents, and talking to some passengers and employees on how the airline can take a more "common-sense approach", Munoz said.
Shares in United's owner, United Continental Holdings Inc, were hammered, dropping 4 percent last week to close at $69 on Thursday, reducing the company's market cap by $770 million to $21.5 billion. He also promised that such incident would never happen again, and that they would treat their customers with dignity.
"It was a system failure across various areas", Munoz continued. He said that United's forecast for the April-through-June quarter has not changed.
In the carrier's first quarter earnings call this week, United again apologised repeatedly for the incident in which Dr. David Dao was dragged from his seat on a United flight to make room for crew members.
Dao, a Vietnamese-American, was bloodied and suffered a concussion and two broken teeth in the confrontation, which created an uproar on Chinese social media.
In particular, Mr Apfel believes that the incident should prompt airlines to re-examine their policies and procedures around overbooking flights, as has been called for by several politicians in the wake of the incident.

We're told police found empty booze containers in the auto , and suspect he died from an overdose. The cause of his death can only be confirmed once the toxicology report will be released.
Other airlines have made a decision to increase their compensation offers for such passengers.
Barclays analyst Brandon Oglenski told Munoz that "accidents happen. hopefully, we can put this behind us".
"We felt pretty good about the communications that we've had so far and our ability to reassure them and explain things like overbooking", Kirby said.
Munoz said Tuesday he spoke with the local Chinese consulate and will be traveling to China on a previously scheduled trip.
Nobody at United Airlines will lose their job over an incident where a passenger was left with injuries while being forcibly removed from his seat.
United's earnings for the first three months of the year bested analyst projections, earning 41 cents per share, excluding one-time items, versus an expected 38 cents.
