NEW YORK United Airlines (UAL.N) Chief Executive Oscar Munoz will not chair the company's board in 2018, it said in a regulatory filing on Friday, following a high-profile incident in which an elderly passenger was dragged from a flight.

In a reversal of Munoz's earlier employment agreement, he has opted to leave "future determinations related to the Chairman position to the discretion of the Board," the filing said.
