Munoz vowed it would never happen again to a seated passenger on any of United's overbooked aircraft.
Other airline veterans agree the situation should never have gotten to the point of removing a passenger against his will. If the airline is overbooked, their policy states that united will provide transportation without stopover on its next flight to convince you to give up your current seat.
But if the passenger posed no threat and was not being disruptive, officers nearly certainly could have tried an approach other than dragging him out of his seat and down the aisle, including simply telling the airline to resolve the situation itself, experts said.
An afternoon recap of the day's most important business news, delivered weekdays.
Munoz said he plans to take a look at how United uses law enforcement on planes after seeing how Dao was forcibly removed, causing him to hit his head and bleed from his mouth. "We can't do that".
Megan McCarthy, a spokeswoman for the airline, declined to say Wednesday if the payment would be in cash, frequent-flier miles, or other forms.
The extraordinary move comes following an extraordinary event. The incident became a public-relations disaster for the airline company.

Gilles also denied Brown's accusation that she was impregnated by Belafonte. Ms Jamra said the allegations are part of "an ongoing smear campaign".
Emirates Airlines trolled the company with a video advertisement released Tuesday that started by quoting United CEO Oscar Munoz, who told airline trade publication ATW in March that "Those [Gulf] airlines aren't airlines". In a subsequent letter to employees, the CEO called the customer "disruptive" and "belligerent".
On Wednesday, 21 Senate Democrats demanded a more-detailed account of the incident from Munoz. The passenger might be within his rights to feel that United had reached out to him quite enough already.
A spokesman for Corboy & Demetrio, one of the firms acting on behalf of the doctor, said he is still being treated in hospital but one of his relatives is expected to give a news conference on Thursday in Chicago. No lawsuit has been filed yet.
Airport officials have said little about Sunday's events and nothing about Dao's behavior before he was pulled from the jet that was bound for Louisville, Kentucky.
The magazine had last month named Munoz its "US Communicator of the Year" for 2016 based on his steadying of the airline after the prior chief executive resigned amid a scandal and Munoz himself suffered a heart attack.
Chicago Aviation Commissioner Ginger Evans will also speak. The only euphemistic mention of the violence was made when Munoz apologised for having to "re-accommodate a passenger", something which brought to mind one of the bureaucratic workers in the dystopian film Brazil: "The population census has got him down as "dormanted". He also described Dao as unruly and said he had "raised his voice". Two more officers were suspended Wednesday.
He was the only passenger removed from the plane, who was later permitted to board again. Neeleman said that on a flight he once took, the airline asked for volunteers, and when no one agreed to leave, the airline simply canceled the flight and ordered everyone off.
