United Continental CEO Oscar Munoz will not be promoted to chairman of the company next year as was planned, CNBC’s Steve Kopack reports.
The decision comes weeks after Chicago airport police bloodied a paying customer who refused to give up his seat for a company flight attendant.
News that Munoz would not get a planned promotion ticked Twitter users:
