United Airlines sought to quell the uproar over a man being dragged off a plane by announcing on Tuesday that it would no longer ask police to remove passengers from full flights and would compensate customers who were on the flight when the man was removed.

The video sparked national outrage and calls for congressional investigations.

The head of the airline said this week that the security officers were following "established procedures for dealing with situations like this."

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Tuesday called the forced removal of the passenger "troubling."

"I don't think anyone looks at that video and isn't disturbed that a man was treated that way," Spicer told reporters Tuesday.

Spicer declined to say whether the White House or federal authorities would get involved, saying he didn't want to "get ahead" of an investigation being conducted by the airline and local authorities.
