- United Airlines Capt. Neil Swindells resigned days after he was narrowly elected to lead the union of more than 14,000 pilots.
- Swindells had apologized a day earlier for comments on pilot forums over the last few years.
- United’s pilot union is in the middle of contract negotiations with the airline.
In his resignation note to pilots Wednesday night, he said that “while many of these things have been taken completely out of context and publicly weaponized against me, I cannot ignore their existence and the damaging effect it has had on many of my fellow pilots.”
