United Airlines Bumps Woman From Flight, Gives Her $10000 Travel Credit

Bumped United passenger walks away with $10000 voucher

A passenger who was bumped off a full flight has scored the maximum prize - a $10,000 travel voucher.

"When you are forcibly bumped from a flight, the law entitles you to cash compensation for anything more than a one hour delay", Schummer said.

Allison Preiss was about to board a flight from Dulles, Virginia, to Austin, Texas, when the boarding kiosk informed her she had to give up her spot.

While Preiss may have preferred cash, here are five trips she can now take - at no cost.

Then this: "I AM THE LOWEST FARE PASSENGER", Preiss tweeted.

Clearly, the company didn't need another disaster, and Preiss, who works as a public relations professional, had thousands of followers listening to her frustrations with the company.

She said United at first offered her a $2,000 voucher and the next available seat on a flight. For a flight that THEY oversold.

United bumped up its free credit cap to $10,000 in 2017 after Dr. David Dao was beaten and injured while being removed from an overbooked flight.

United confirmed to USA Today in an email that Preiss was offered the $10,000 voucher. United did not immediately say if any other passengers have received a $10,000 voucher.

United Airlines has recently come under sharp criticism after a German shepherd was incorrectly sent from OR to Japan, instead of Kansas City. She wrote on Twitter, "I am going to go INSANE at Pizza Hut".

Of course, it was also to be competitive: Delta Airlines had quickly capitalized on its rival's PR nightmare, raising its policy to include remissions of up to $9,950 shortly after the video went viral.
