Despite passenger-dragging nightmare, United execs are upbeat about airline's prospects
Dao received a concussion and a broken nose and had two of his teeth knocked out.
Dr. David Dao, the 69-year-old Vietnamese-American doctor who was seen in video being dragged off a United flight a week ago, will likely sue the airline, his attorney said on Thursday.

But he said the company had not considered sacking anybody over it.
Munoz declined to comment on any other policy changes coming to United Airlines, according to The Tribune.
Lawyers for Mr Dao reported that their client, a physician from Pennsylvania, sought treatment for unspecified injuries at a local hospital following the incident.
