Why do airlines continue to overbook?  What can you do to avoid it?  See for yourself in today's "Video of the Day"


After people were horrified by video of a passenger getting dragged off a full United Express flight by airport police, the head of United's parent company said the airline was reaching out to the man to "resolve this situation."  Hours later on Monday, his tone turned more defensive. He described the man as "disruptive and belligerent."  By Tuesday afternoon, almost two days after the Sunday evening confrontation in Chicago, CEO Oscar Munoz issued his most contrite apology yet as details emerged about the man seen on cellphone videos recorded by other passengers at O'Hare Airport.  Munoz latest statement described the removal as "truly horrific," and plans a full review of policies.  Whether his PR or legal department, or both, caused the about face, one can only speculate.  But it stands to reason at there's more to come on this one.  Tony takes a look.

ABC's Jim Ryan breaks down the numbers as to why with Tony.
