My seat was dirty. No food for baby available. Crew were wonderful. Early boarding helpful with baby.
This trip was a Christmas gift to our family. We were flying from Lexington to Palm Springs. When we were checking in the ticket agent said one bags was over weight by 4 LBS. We were flying first class which has baggage weight of 70 LBS per bag, one bag was 54LBS. We then had to take items from one bag to another. The agent also saw we had a dog with us. Once on the plane we were seated with the dog in the carrier. The United ticket agent came in the plane with two other people, I believe one was TSA and the other some security officer. The United agent said we had not paid for the dog ticket. We had paid for the ticket when we purchased our tickets. She did not give me time to find the email receipt. She then threatened all three of us with either I come with her or she would have all three of physically removed from the plane. I left the plane to pay for another ticket. She had to take my credit back to where we checked in. She acted as if it needed to be done immediately. She said we had 3 minutes. We then sat at the gate for approximately another 45 minutes. This was so embarrassing…to be threatened to be removed from a plane that we paid for all tickets including the dog. The flight attendance on the next leg of our trip were not very attentive to the passengers. On the plus side all the flights were on time. All in all, this was a miserable way to start a holiday vacation. United Airlines showed no compassion towards the whole incident. I feel we were purposely neglected.
