Suraj from Belgium (United Airlines UA 71 Flight cancellation)
January 21, 2024, 1:39 pm

I am writing to express my deep concern and dissatisfaction regarding the recent experience I had with United Airlines. I believe it is essential to bring to your attention the series of unfortunate events that have not only caused significant financial strain but have also resulted in an unfavorable record in the U.S. immigration system. On August 8, 2023, I initiated a chat with one of your customer service representatives to inquire about the visa requirements for my upcoming journey from Amsterdam to Toronto, with a layover in the United States. The representative assured me in writing that I did not require a visa for the USA while transiting to Canada. Relying on this information, I proceeded to book my ticket with United Airlines. However, as the departure date approached, I discovered that I needed to apply for an Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) to transit through the U.S. To my dismay, my ESTA application was rejected, leading to the cancellation of my original flight. This unexpected turn of events not only resulted in additional expenses (Air Transat 1141.38 euros) for rebooking a flight without a U.S. connection but also left me with an adverse record in the U.S. border and immigration system due to the rejected visa application. I promptly contacted United Airlines and requested a refund for the original ticket, given the circumstances. The response from United Airlines was to provide a credit, which I appreciate. However, my concern arises from the fact that, despite the status indicating that the refund has been completed, I have yet to receive the corresponding amount back to my credit card. I must emphasize that I am facing both financial and personal repercussions as a result of the misinformation provided by your representative. The $811 represents a considerable sum for me, and the rejection of my ESTA application has left a lasting negative impact on my record with U.S. immigration authorities. This situation is not only distressing but has also created an undue burden that I believe should be rectified. I kindly request a thorough investigation into this matter and urge United Airlines to expedite the refund process, ensuring that the funds are promptly returned to my credit card. Additionally, I would appreciate clarification and assurance that appropriate measures will be taken to address the misinformation provided by your representative, preventing such incidents in the future. I understand that errors can occur, but the consequences of this particular situation are far-reaching and deeply troubling. I trust that United Airlines values customer satisfaction and will take the necessary steps to rectify this matter promptly. Thank you for your immediate attention to this pressing issue. I look forward to a swift resolution and your prompt response.
