United Airlines passenger, Allison Preiss, was booted off her flight on March 21 but got $10,000 instead plus a food voucher.
Preiss began texting her ordeal at United’s gate at Dulles International Airport.
“United is offering $1K in travel credit for an oversold flight. If nobody bites, they will kick off the lowest fare passenger by pulling them out of the boarding line. For a flight that THEY oversold. Unreal.”
“I AM THE LOWEST FARE PASSENGER.”
“They are kicking me off this flight.”
“They can’t board me on this plane because there is a broken seat.”
“UNITED IS THE WORST.”
“United tried to get me to sign a document that says I volunteered my seat on this plane when I was involuntarily denied boarding. Sketchy.”
“On the upside, I wasn’t physically dragged off the plane, and my dog wasn’t killed on board, so I’ve got that going for me…which is nice.”
“They really do not want to give me cash. They just offered me $10,000 in travel credit. TEN THOUSAND.”
“I also got two $10 meal vouchers. I am going to go INSANE at Pizza Hut.”
