LAWYER WILL REPRESENT ANOTHER PASSENGER
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.
