United STOLE Woman’s 1st Class Seat, GAVE IT To Sheila Jackson Lee!?

Wow this story sounds like a bunch of BS and everyone should pressure United to answer some damn questions.

From the Houston Chronicle:

A passenger on a flight from Houston to Washington D.C. has accused United Airlines of giving her first-class seat to U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. D-Houston, and then threatening to remove her from the plane for complaining and snapping a photo of the Houston congresswoman.

“It was just so completely humiliating,” said Jean-Marie Simon, a 63-year-old attorney and private school teacher who used 140,000 miles on Dec. 3 to purchase the first-class tickets to take her from Washington D.C. to Guatemala and back home.

When it came time to board the last leg of her flight home from George Bush Intercontinental Airport on Dec. 18, after a roughly hour-long weather delay, Simon said the gate attendant scanned her paper ticket and told her it was not in the system.

Did you cancel your flight?, the attendant asked.

“No,” she said she replied. “I just want to go home.”

Her seat, 1A, was taken, she was told. Simon was given a $500 voucher and reseated in row 11, Economy Plus.

United claims she canceled her seat but she says she didn’t. So what the hell is going on here?

Seriously they need to investigate this:

The Dems keep acting like they’re for the little people but trust me, they’ll happily screw us over whenever they want…

    What a disgrace. And for Jackson Lee to play the race card.

    Isn’t that unlawful taking and illegal gift by United?

    Sheila Jack’s Coon Lee, what a fine example of an ignorant porch monkey, great example of what’s wrong with ignorant voters. Term limits and no pensions would fix this POS. Get paid while you are in office, then nothing else, no pensions for elected officials, see how many of these turds would want the job then !


    It just SHOWS the SLANTED BIGETTED World we are living IN ! UNITED AIRLINES made the notorious MISTAKE
    and should not PAY the passenger a $500 voucher but at least TWENTY TIMES that amount ($10,000) IN CASH not
    a voucher (to teach UNITED a LESSON !!!) plus BAN Rep. JACKSON LEE from EVER FLYING AGAIN with UNITED !! ENOUGH is ENOUGH ! LIVIDLY ANGRY – Thomas B. Abruzzini
