Good Morning, It’s Tuesday, 11 April 2017, and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
United Airlines is dealing with an indefensible PR nightmare, after video of authorities literally dragging a passenger off of an “overbooked” plane surfaced on the internet. Time for the CEO–who had a tepid and poorly received response–to step down. United was the surviving corporate culture in in the Continental-United Airlines merger. It should have been the other way around. These types of things always seem to happen when businesses are acquired and operated by management that’s financial vs. client centric and which has no real passion for the business, just the numbers. United never had that good a customer service rep to begin with…this certainly won’t help.
The U.S. sent a naval group to the Korean peninsula, just in case the North Korean leader decides to become even more bellicose than he has been in the past. Not a good situation for either side.
America has a new Supreme Court judge as Neil Gorsuch has been sworn in.
The terrorist incident in Sweden claimed four victimes; one of them was Chris Bevington, an executive with music streaming service Spotify.
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is headed to Russian for diplomatic meetings. Putin has said that he will not meet with Tillerson, not unexpected fallout since the missile strike on Syria by the U.S.
