Seats were incredibly small and felt squished together. A strap from my luggage is missing and United baggage service in FLL (Maria Perez said it want her problem. She was rude & very uncaring customers service).

Next time flying another airline too many delays

Feb 7, 2020

I paid $19 for an isle seat but at the request of a flight attendant (and to do a nice thing) gave it to a family so that they could sit together. I was told I would be able to get that fee refunded. However there were no representatives at the customer service desk that late at night. How do I accomplish this? Thank you
