United Airlines is almost as unpopular as U.S. President Donald Trump, according to a new Public Policy Polling survey released Thursday.
But he did take a jab at United Airlines, which is part of a campaign opposing more USA routes for Gulf carriers, over its handling of a passenger hauled from an overbooked flight.
While the family received an apology and $100 travel voucher, Furfey demanded that United Airlines as well as the others should "review its procedures" to avoid similar situations.
Registered voters prefer United Airlines over President Trump, a new poll released Thursday reveals. Amid its disastrous month, it had 24-point net-negative rating, and 40 percent of respondents said United was the worst airline-far outpacing the second-worst finisher, American Airlines, at 1o percent.
In a separate question, the poll found 50 percent of respondents disapproved of President Trump's job performance compared to 43 percent who approved.
In fact, 40% percent of those polled said United Airlines was the worst U.S. airline.
No one will be fired in United passenger dragging incident
Other airline stocks also declined in the same period. "We are looking at a broad array of issues", Munoz said. Dao received a concussion and a broken nose and had two of his teeth knocked out.
As the president has waded more into world affairs, 39 percent of respondents said they believe he will embroil the United States into World War III, while a slightly bigger group, 40 percent, believe Trump won't start a massive war. 36 percent said they were not sure.
The poll conducted by PPP surveyed 648 people on April 17 and April 18 and there is a 3.9% margin of error.
Several Chinese internet users had threatened to boycott the airline over the incident where Vietnamese-origin passenger David Dao was dragged violently off a United Airlines flight on April 9 in order to make room for a member of staff.
Despite the backlash, though, the poll shows Americans still have a slightly higher opinion of the airline than they do of the president. "Their voters are considerably more fired up about voting right now".
One thing Trump could do to improve his standing, according to the PPP numbers, is fire Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.
