USC has appointed Oscar Munoz, the CEO of United Airlines, to the Board of Trustees. Munoz and his wife are USC graduates. So that is a positive.
Now for the negative: United Airlines? Really? Remember, Munoz was widely criticized for his response to a passenger being forcibly removed from a flight in Chicago. You can relive that here.
Last month, it was revealed that United led all airlines in animal deaths. This came to light after a dog died after being placed in an overhead bin.
But hey, no worries, United is paying $70 million to USC for the naming rights to the Coliseum. It’s just amazing USC would not delay the announcement a little longer since 75 percent of all animal deaths on U.S. carriers were on United flights.
What’s next? Appointing someone from Facebook to the board?
