Don't Fly UNITED Unless You Have No Choice

On Friday, January 8, I flew United from Dayton, Ohio to Chicago and then to Los Angeles (LAX) California. United managed to lose my one bag that I paid them $20 dollars extra to fly with me. It is now Sunday afternoon in LA, and I still do not have my one green bag. United has their call centers in India and the Philippines, and if you ever talked to a person in India about a bag in Chicago, well, it is quite an experience. I could not understand a word they said.

The only people that should fly United are: 1.) people that have no other way of getting from point A to point B; 2.) people that only use carry-on luggage; and 3.) fucking idiots like me that tried to save a few bucks on their ticket. I am going back to flying Delta and Southwest. I have learned my lesson.

Not only did my bag not arrive with in LA with me, but United does not know where my bag is! They are the worst in my book. Anyone that fly United and has other options is just asking for disappointment. I could tell you that I have called United's number a zillion times, but they don't do anything to get my bag to me.

Be smart and don't fly UNITED!!!

Stay tuned.

I have never flown. And I don't want to. I think I'd rather walk. Or paddle a canoe.

We should all support Southwest when possible as they do not charge for bags

If its any comfort to you, Fred, Aer Lingus sent my bags to Liverpool when I was going to Dublin. After a few weeks I got them back, but I had new knickers by then. Your wandering bag may come back to you yet - or at least send you a postcard from some foreign and exotic port!
