UA Passenger Gets $10,000 Voucher After Being Bumped PDF Print E-mail


When she complained to the airline, at first they offered her a voucher worth $650. When she refused it, there were phone calls back and forth,  until the ante was raised to the ten grand. Then the bumpee accepted.

Swiss Ban Cruel Boiling Of Live Lobsters. What’s Next? PDF Print E-mail

Oh sure, tell that to the neighbors when your hound dog bays at the moon at midnight.

 
Overnight Luxury Bus Between Los Angeles And San Francisco PDF Print E-mail

The total flying journey takes about the same time as the bus ride. And without the private, stretched-out sleep comfort and California dawn window views. For schedules, ticket prices and other info, go to www.ridecabin.com
