United Offers Discounts on Future Flights
We all know that the airline biz is in the doldrums, and United is trying to drum up traffic for the remainder of the year with this enticing fly-now save-later offer. More on that over in the Airfarewatchdog.com blog.
Let's say you arrive at the airport early to check-in for your trip to Rome. You wait in line, and you wait and wait and wait, only to be told by a ticket agent that -- so sorry -- you're flight is full and you've been bumped. So you're stuck waiting two days for the next flight out, and all you're offered is a lousy $168 voucher? Is that all you're entitled to? Erm, not quite. Check out our recent Q&A on international bumping.
