The United Airlines flight from which a passenger was forcibly removed to make room for airline employees wasn’t actually overbooked, a company spokesman told The Daily Caller, contradicting previous reports.

Kentucky doctor David Dao was dragged from the plane after he refused to give up his seat to make room for airline employees. The spokesperson said that “a United Express crew needed to get to Louisville to operate a flight downline.”

The airline offered $800 to anybody willing to give up their seat for the four crew members, before choosing passengers at random to leave the plane they had already bordered. When Dao refused, police officers were called to forcibly remove him from the plane. The incident left Dao bloody and disoriented.

Video of the incident went viral, creating a public relations nightmare for the airline.  United Airlines shares rapidly fell on Tuesday as a result of the fall-out from the incident. One Democratic lawmaker even called for a House committee hearing after seeing the video.
