and the saga continues…

First, I promise to post the good parts of Europe soon (other than United Airlines, it was amazing).

Now, my response from someone at United. In case it wasn’t in the letter to United I posted here, in the actual emails I sent I asked to be reimbursed for my phone calls from the UK and said that basically the only way I would fly United again would be if they give me a free round trip ticket.

And the response:

Yeah…did you see anything in there about my two requests?

Me neither.

Oh…and I did finally get my luggage.

  1. Yikes. I am sorry you had to go through all this. I have never ‘lost’ a bag and will remember this post if it ever happens. You do have a great way of telling a story though…

bueller?... bueller?... bueller?
