United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz will not become chairman of the company next year as was previously planned, according to a Friday SEC filing.
Munoz initiated the change in his employment contract that would have allowed him to assume the position in 2018, a United spokesperson told Business Insider.
Munoz has left “future
determinations related to the Chairman position to the discretion of the Board,” according to the regulatory filing.
Munoz came under fire in early April for his response to the forcible removal of a passenger from a United flight. Munoz apologized to the customer, David Dao, after first issuing two poorly-received statements that referred to the passenger as “disruptive” and “belligerent.”
The United spokesperson declined to comment on whether the incident influenced the change to Munoz’s employment agreement.
