Oscar Munoz, the CEO of United Airlines, apparently won’t become the chairman of the company as planned.
Munoz has decided to leave “future determinations related to the Chairman position to the discretion of the Board,” according to a regulatory filing on Friday. He was set to become chairman next year.

The sudden change comes after United’s reputation plummeted following a recent series of public relations missteps, including a video that showed a passenger being violently dragged off a plane.
