It may be time for United to 're-accommodate' CEO Oscar Munoz

People make fun of "corporate speak" like synergy and circle back all the time but particularly in a crisis, words like "re-accommodate" have no place. They just come off as tone deaf and insensitive. This was arguably United and Munoz's biggest mistake. If other CEOs take away one lesson from this horrible incident, that should be it.

Strike two: Munoz should never have criticized the passenger.

Beyond his word choice, Munoz made a huge mistake in criticizing the passenger, saying he was " disruptive and belligerent ." That may have been true but that's irrelevant. When the angry mob on the internet is sympathizing with that passenger and demonizing your company, the last thing you do is criticize that passenger. That just dug the hole for Munoz — and United — deeper.

Strike three: United could have prevented this from happening in the first place.

Every disgruntled customer can be "bribed." If an entire plane of customers refused to surrender their seats, then it was obvious United Airlines wasn't offering enough compensation for this inconvenience. The United crew should have been able to offer customers more to give up their seats — a first-class upgrade, or maybe a $1,500 voucher for a future flight.
