Gotta love reading online discussion forums some days. And today is one of them. This rant about a seat assignment screw-up is rather entertaining, to say the least. The author did go back eventually and delete the content but not before others had quoted it for posterity.
On the plus side, there was one bit of solid advice offered in the 30 minutes the thread was open: Seek downgrade compensation from United. They’re supposed to pay out regardless of how/why you were upgraded if there is a subsequent downgrade. So the ranting party may actually get something out of the deal.
As for the suggestion that the UA agent called the other passenger, well, I’m betting against that for a whole bunch of reasons.
If nothing else, hopefully they also get a deep breath and relax a bit. And manage to avoid the potential air rage incident on Thursday. Fortunately there is plenty of time left for that to still happen.
