United Wants To Make Good To Parents Bilked For $3000

Looks the blogger whose elderly, recovering-from-surgery parents got bilked for $3000 after United Airlines lost their airlines, is finally catching a break.

After United asked us to take down an executive’s cellphone number we accidentally posted, we mentioned to the PR person about Mahesh’s plight.

Today Mahesh blogs:

    “UAL has called me last week for more questions and again late last friday evening and left a message that they are ready to make some amends. I am scheduled to be having a very busy day today, so I left a message for UAL to contact me on tuesday.”

If all goes well, tomorrow should prove the power of a one-man, dedicated, blog campaign when you:

• Supply source documents
• Reach out to affinity blogs
• Aggressively pursue the company with written letters and
• Call the executive of customer care on his personal cellphone

    You should put quotes around the word “accidentally”, or maybe put it in italics accidentally, or maybe even both “accidentally“.

    We heard that before. Listen, United, Don’t ‘want,’ don’t ‘try,’ just DO! Stop being pricks and just cut the guy a friggen check! You KNOW you blew it big time on this one!

    “some amends” does not a fair resolution and refund of all moneys make.

    I’ve got to admit that it sounds like United is still struggling with this one. It seems like they are trying to delicately find a way to continue screwing this guy and still maintain face.

    I second the other comments around here — just pay the guy! That he has had to struggle with this for over six months is just unconscionable!

    and he’s CLEARLY not going away.
