As the overhead
bins were full on a flight from Washington-Dulles yesterday, I gave my
bag to an agent and received a 'receipt' - number UA-9016334394 in case
a United CEO with blood in his veins is looking in and trying to listen
to us, LOL.
UPDATE: 5 full
days have passed, so it's file a claim time. However, I expect a battle,
and they'll most certainly get one from me. The adverse publicity will
cost them much more than the $5,000 value of my 'stolen' photography
UPDATE for those of you following this story:
UPDATE for those of you following the stolen bag of photographic
UPDATE: It is now FIVE WHOLE MONTHS since my camera gear was stolen, and
still nothing from United.
UPDATE: I wrote to the United
Airlines CEO Jeff Smisek a couple days ago, and
received the following reply from United customer care . . .
UPDATE: Having not heard from United within the promised 5 business day
period, I sent a follow-up email to United Customer Care, and Jeff
Smisek, the United CEO.
