United Airlines Complaint - United jacks up your prices to make 9/11 money back
COLUMBUS, OHIO -- I have been searching the internet for a decent weekend flight anytime in the next 2 MONTHS. I have found absolutely nothing. Your airline in particular seems to think that booking a flight 8 weeks in advance from Chicago to Miami should cost roughly $600/person. Do I have 'sucker' stamped on my head? Do you see me bending over?
I know it is not just you United, I am seeing a trend with all the major airlines. I think they had a big meeting and came to the conclusion that if they jacked us consumers for a few months, they could make up all the money they lost a few months back. Oh, and what is this $10 per leg September 11th security fee/tax? Is this for you to pay your security workers $6.10/hr instead of $5.98/hr and pocket the rest? If it is not you, if this cost is imposed by the feds, than what the hell am I doing paying 45% taxes each year on every dime I earn or spend in a store?
I guess you win. I cannot afford to take my trip so I'll be staying at home spending my leftover tax money somewhere else.
At the very least I would like a response from your company regarding this incident. Thank you for your time.
