United = Rat Bastards

Mon Mar 20 2006 21:11 MST #

Can i just say I hate United now? I had to change my flight so I can attend my grandpa's funeral. They don't offer bereavement fares anymore, so I had to pay 260 bucks to stay an extra day. However, as it turns out, I could have changed my flight free, because of snow storms in Denver. But they didn't offer this to me on the phone yesterday, oh no. Lets just charge her as much as we possibly can. I already said earlier today that I will always fly Southwest in the future if that is an option, and you know what - it would have been well, well worth the extra fifty dollars. They are the only decent airline that i know of these days.
