anybody flown United Airlines lately?

I had the worst experience with my wife and 7 week old son a couple days ago. Due to circumstances beyond our control we got to the airport 25 minutes before takeoff at Portland, Oregon airport. We had already checked in but they would not give us our boarding passes. They stalled us by ignoring us until the flight had taken off (there were only three attendants at the 11 windows and one left without so much as acknowledging us because, as we found out later, she was almost off and didn't want to have to talk to us and make her late to clock out and count out her drawer), made us get a flight the next day, which meant getting a hotel room. The baby was exhausted, my wife was and so was I. I wrote a very long letter explaining every detail about it to United. Anybody else have an experience like this?? 

Luckily we're home and I'm glad to be here writing about it for anyone who would like to share a similar experience. 

In real estate news, sales are down, prices are up and interest rates have never been lower. Hmmm.. Good time to buy if you've got the $$$!!! Check out my previous blog or contact me so I can send you an update on the Torrance, CA market if you'd like.

I had a horrible experience on an international flight with American Airlines but never one with United. Glad to learn you got home safely (finally).
