Many are saying they got full refund back and no award deposit fee from UNITED for free cancellation after filing complaint with DOT and doing chargeback or with their card company

United canceled my business flight and purposely booked me to an economy that cant be changed online. Knowing i can’t wait 4hr on the phone. So i had to cancel and pay the redeposit fee to get my miles back to book the flight i wanted!!

I planned ahead and stayed home while this china ccp virus causing wuhan flu ravaged the world. United cancellation did not affect me.

This sucks for everyone, I know that, companies know that. A lot of companies are going out of their way to help in various ways and some are not, or can’t. Technically, because it’s a national emergency, there’s a lot that companies can do to the consumer. Heck, MLB could withhold salaries from players if they wanted. While United might be screwing with passengers on the mileage tickets, they’ve been more than helpful to me on paid tickets. I can’t say the same for VRBO, which won’t work with me at all.

Cal Ripken Jr. I hope it works out for you. I was stranded during 9/11 so I know it’s very stressful to be away from home.

I got hosed by United too. I’m an American currently stranded overseas (trying not to let my stress show in my other comments), and I booked a flight with United. The airline itself canceled the flight, and I never even got an e-mail about the cancellation. I simply saw that the trip was no longer under current reservations. I asked on social media and ended up calling them. They wanted to charge to me a $125 fee to redeposit the miles even though I needed that flight and the airline was the one to cancel it.

Then I pressed on with some questions, I asked if it’s really unlimited changes during this stressful time or not for free. United said NO. It’s only free changes allowed in March. After March.. good luck.. screw all American customers.. in April you will need to pay the $125 change fee.

I find it so disappointing that United is asking for billions in public money yet they are being so greedy, stingy, and difficult in a time of national need.

You are being very unpatriotic.

We take care of busineses first and then if they feel like it they will take care of us. I love this model.

I don’t recommend United EVER. It’s the most deceptive airline on the planet.
