Doctor Dragged Off United Flight Convicted of Drug Charges in 2004


The man who was taken off a United Airlines flight Sunday night has been identified as a doctor whose past includes drug convictions from 13 years ago.

David Dao, 69 anni, at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport went viral and sparked a firestorm of criticism directed at the airline, which had to disembark  4 passengers off the flight in order to make room for 4 United Airlines employees who needed to catch the flight to Louisville.

Dr. Dao’s medical license was returned in Y 2015. His wife Dr. Teresa Dao is also a pulmonologist and runs a clinic in Elizabethtown.

Neither Dr. Dao nor his wife have spoken to any media outlets.


United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz commended security officers and his airline staff for responding to what he called Dao’s “disruptive and belligerent” behavior.

“Our employees followed established procedures for dealing with situations like this,” CEO Munoz wrote in a company e-Mail. “While I deeply regret this situation arose, I also emphatically stand behind all of you, and I want to commend you for continuing to go above and beyond to ensure we fly right.”
