United CEO got $18.7 million in compensation

It sparked global outrage and calls from social media users in the United States, Vietnam and China to boycott the carrier.

"It is not something that Emirates does lightly when it starts pulling capacity out of markets that it's spent millions of dollars developing and operating", he said.

Munoz will no longer be the chairman of United's board in 2018, according to a regulatory filing released Friday.




Emirates has announced it will reduce the number of flights on five USA routes - Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Seattle, Boston and Los Angeles - after witnessing a fall in demand among Middle Eastern travellers. Daily flights to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando will be trimmed to five per week. The Gulf carriers strongly dispute the allegations.

In today's "United-drags-a-person-of-color-off-of-an-airplaine" news, United Airlines detained a Mexican passenger because they thought he might be "trafficking" the little girl who was traveling with him. A new poll has found that despite the airline's bad press lately, people still viewed United Airlines more favorably than Trump.

"You need really to put the customer at the heart of your business".

In a statement, the Partnership for Open and Fair Skies - the lobbying organization that speaks on behalf of American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines - said it was "laughable" that Emirates would refer to itself as a profit-oriented enterprise. "It's symptomatic of a corporate culture within that company from the board and chief executive downwards".

With 51 percent saying they think Obama had a better handle on world affairs, compared to the 39 percent who said that of Trump.
