United $10000 Voucher Given to Woman Bumped From Flight

The airline confirmed they issued the voucher in a statement.

Nothing is more frustrating than getting bumped off a flight-but a massive travel voucher may ease the pain.

In a series of tweets, Allison Preiss of Washington, D.C., described how she was rewarded after being asked to give up her seat on a Thursday flight. Preiss said the airline chose to remove her because she paid the lowest fare. She was later told that she was bumped because there was a broken seat on the plane.

"Since nobody volunteered, they then announced that the lowest-fare passenger would be pulled out of the boarding line", Preiss said.

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.

United first offered her a $2,000 voucher and asked her to sign a form saying she volunteered her seat. "They are kicking me off this flight". "Sketchy af", she wrote on Twitter.

"They really do not want to give me cash".

She added: "I also got two $10 meal vouchers".

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 did not immediately say if any other passengers have received a $10,000 voucher. The United agent subsequently told Preiss she could offer her up to a $10,000 voucher.

But alas, she didn't get access for a day to the airline lounge. "I am going to go INSANE at Pizza Hut", she tweeted.
