Title: $10,000 Travel Voucher - Ask for Cash
Post by: Bicycle_B on March 24, 2018, 05:00:56 AM
If you're bumped from a plane flight, ask for cash.  Woman who did this got 10k voucher instead of $650...

Good to hear that someone was rewarded and didn't resort to bad behavior.

Wow, I probably would have been fine with the initial offer of $2k.  I don't see how $650 cash can be worse for United than a $10k voucher unless the voucher isn't likely to be redeemed.
