My friend just got back from Aruba for his honeymoon. On the way there, his baggage was lost somewhere in PHL
. Upon getting to Aruba and finding out he was bagless, US said that he'd receive $50 USD as compensation when
he returned to the airport for his return flight. It seems to me rather illogical that they only compensate you after your trip once you had to spend money to repurchase clothing, personal items, etc.
From my experiences, both times that my baggage was lost (NW and UA
) I was given the "compensation" upon arrival.
Has anyone experienced the first scenario, or was he just getting worked over by someone shifty at the airport in Aruba?
United 717 heavy, you're facing the wrong way. Any chance you can powerback to get off of my deice pad?
