United CEO won't add chairman title in 2018 as was planned

The airline already has announced some policy changes, such as no longer having law enforcement remove customers from overbooked flights.

Perhaps that is why United also said on Friday that its compensation program for Munoz and other top executives at the airline will be more closely tied to "directly and meaningfully progress in improving the customer experience".

CEO Oscar Munoz will not receive a planned promotion to also take on the role as Chairman of the Board of Directors, parent company United Continental Holdings said in a regulatory filing on Friday.

In April 2016, United agreed with a group of investors to install airline industry veteran Robert Milton as non-executive chairman.In initial statements following the incident, Munoz and United did not apologize to Dao for the way he had been treated, instead describing him as "disruptive and belligerent". Social media users across the United States, Vietnam and China called for a boycott of the airline.

United also said Munoz received US$18.7 million in compensation previous year.

Chief Executive Officer Oscar Munoz's base salary, bonus and other compensation of a year ago was boosted by a stock grant valued at US$6.8 million that the company awarded to entice him to join the company in September 2015, according to a proxy filing yesterday by the Chicago-based carrier. Munoz wrote that he was "personally committed to putting proof behind our promise" in United's commitment to reforms.Committee leaders said in a joint statement that getting answers about what happened and how to prevent a recurrence was a "priority" and any further delay was "unacceptable". Munoz had been on the airline's board while serving as CEO of freight railroad CSX Corp. The airline has made some strides in improving its on-time performance, canceling fewer flights and losing fewer bags.

Most of Munoz's compensation past year was in stock. However, it still generally ranks poorly in surveys of airline travelers. Munoz received a total of $18.7 million, including $6.8 million related to replacing his equity stake that he held when he was president of railway CSX.
