I am currently being brushed off by United Airlines for receiving any compensation for reaching my destination one day late due to their mistake. The flight I was to be on was posted as "ON SCHEDULE" but when I got to the gate 30 minutes before departure, there was no plane in sight. I found out that it had already left and no passenger announcement was made. I later discovered that this was because I was actually SCANNED ON that flight. I then had further issues getting on the next day's flight since according to them I had already left!
Does anyone know about policy regarding flights leaving early? I expect to be compensated for hotel, meal, and incidentals at the very least. They do not seem to be responding to this request. Any suggestions?
