I believe the airline reserves the right to switch to any plane they want up until departure. BTW what airline?

Delta

Is the consensus that it's better to call or better to write?

Well if it was a Lufthansa flight, you usually go to the airline you flew. Try lufthansa

Wasn't sure which to go to. Can I still complain to LH even though UA already "compensated" me?
