99% of the time it wont work especially if theyve already compensated you, which means they will most likely say we feel youve been compensated fairly

United. I was Platinum when it happened, I’m 1K now.

What happened?

What... happened? I’m intrigued

Hard to counter when they could care less about their customers

what happened? most airlines have standard comp for issues, and their typical customer service reps can’t offer more. if you want to escalate, i would fill out the customer service form on the website. i would list the issues you had and explain what you think you are entitled to for those issues.

You all inspired me (see post below about looking for a physical challenge that won’t kill me). I think I’ll try a triathlon/sprint triathlon. Any tips? I think (?) I can swim - I know I learned when I was a kid, but I haven’t actually swam in a few decades. I can definitely ride a bike and I can run. Not looking to win any medals, I’m just looking for a challenge that will keep me engaged.
