Don't fly UNITED Airlines...they are pirates

Jump to last reply

Don't fly UNITED Airlines...they are pirates. UNITED will bend the baggage allowance rules to suit their pirate surcharging passengers $400 for 5 extra pounds in a United allowance 70-pound North America international travel bag.Never mind that Star Alliance Gold status allows 20 kilograms extra!

UNITED ground staff is so poorly trained and incompetent that it takes UNITED 58 minutes to figure out how to book international travel bags through to the destination, BUT, UNITED is quick to demand your credit card and $400 five minutes past the "Cut Off" time for Boarding with the polite words: "You pay $400 NOW, or you will NOT fly".

Fly any other airline: Thai Airways, EVA, Lufthansa, TAP Portugal ALL recognize Star Alliance agreements and ALL provide real service, as opposed to UNITED miserable excuse for 'in-flight service': Pay for lousy 'lunch boxes' on 4 hour flight that do not even have a sandwich inside!
