United Airlines Complaint


Stay away from United - Flight from Minneapolis to Chicago

I booked round trip flight (UA 0334) from Minneapolis, MN to Chicago, IL for my family. However, my wife decided to stay home with our 15-month baby instead of taking chances with airport delays due to expected snow storms in Midwest region. I called the Customer Service line and requested that the ticket of my wife be canceled. I was told that if I cancel one both of the tickets would be canceled. Then I told the persona that I do not want cancel my ticket but only that of my wife. He said he could cancel the tickets and then put me to a flight that was leaving one hour after my original flight. Moreover, I inquired about what would happen to my returned flight on Sunday. He assured me that since there were seats available in that flight; he would rebook me the same flight. I said OK. He asked me about my credit card information. As soon as I gave the credit card information, he hung up the phone. I received an email from United Airlines confirming the cancellation of the previous ticket (Confirmation no: S6MHW8). I waited the next email for my new reservation. It never came. I contacted the customer service center again. They told me: there was reservations for me and worse there were no seats available in other flights for the day. I asked them how they could cancel my ticket without securing me first for another reservation. They ridiculed me. Because of their accent, I asked them where they were located. They said in New Delhi, India! I requested to talk to a manager but they would not do. I was and still very frustrated with United Airlines. I had to cancel my hotel reservation with penalty because there were no other flights from any other Airline for such a short notice.

By outsourcing customer service to New Delhi, India, United Airlines may save some money but I assure you that the customer satisfaction is going to go downhill. Instead of hiring customer service professionals with traditional American courtesy, United Airlines decided to do on the cheap---outsourcing customer service to untrained, rude, less paid, Third World employees! Is this worth the price? I am a very, very unsatisfied customer. United Airlines ruined my holiday! Customers: stay away from United Airlines. I normally fly with Northwest/Delta but this time I made a huge mistake and I paid a very heavy price.

Shame on United!
