United chairman steps down
The background to this story is well-known: United Airlines ran a flight for the former chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey purely for his convenience, according to media accounts some months ago. “The Chairman’s Flight” allowed David Samson to get back and forth between Newark and South Caroline where he had a house, the accounts said.
