The Complaint

What happened

Claimant's opinion:

United airlines needs to communicate more clearly with passengers during an emergency situation. "I don't know" is not an acceptable answer when there is major emergency impacting the travel plans of thousands of people. "I don't know" is not an acceptable answer when a passenger asks for the location of one's personal belongings and the date that those items will be returned.

  • My daughter had delays on her flight from Chicago to BWI. The delays extended so late that she had to pick up a flight in the morning. Through their customer service, I was patched to a reservations group who booked a room for her which I paid for over the phone. I received an electronic receipt for that transaction. The hotel never received the information because United Airline / Continental Airlines submitted the reservation throught Expedia. When my daughter arrived at the customer counter, they had run out of hotel vouchers. They gave her the number of Customer Service at the desk. I have now been going around in emails with United Airlines trying to get my reimbursement. They keep offering me vouchers which I no longer wish to have. My daughter has been on two flights with United Airlines this year with extensive delays and destroying personal property.
