Major U.S. airports say current rules prevent incidents like United

At least 10 major U.S. airports say their rules prevent security officers from physically removing passengers from airplanes unless a crime is committed, meaning they would normally avoid incidents such as the one involving the passenger dragged off a United Airlines flight in Chicago. Officials at 10 of the busiest U.S. airports – in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Dallas, New York, Denver, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Miami – said airport police would not physically remove a passenger from a plane over a seat dispute.
