The lawyer rep­re­sent­ing Dr. David Dao, who was dragged from a United Air­lines plane, said he will also rep­re­sent a woman whose clash with an Amer­i­can Air­lines flight at­ten­dant went vi­ral over the week­end. Thomas Demetrio told CNBC that he will rep­re­sent both pas­sen­gers whose re­cent con­fronta­tions with air­line and air­port em­ploy­ees sparked global out­rage and prompted a na­tion­wide con­ver­sa­tion over U.S. car­ri­ers’ treat­ment of pas­sen­gers. “Her tale is com­pelling. The video is a mi­cro­cosm of what’s wrong with the air­line in­dus­try to­day,” Demetrio said in an in­ter­view with CNBC. In a video posted on Face­book by a by­stander aboard the Amer­i­can Air­lines flight, the woman is seen in tears and hold­ing a young child af­ter a male flight at­ten­dant had ap­par­ently wrested a stroller from her.
