United is typically very generous with vouchers when things go wrong...just send them an email!
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Sounds more like they are disorganized, but happy for you.

flew from ewr-san and CO misplaced my luggage.  it arrived on the first night of Yom tov.  i called CO before Y"T and told them that i and my wife needed new shoes because of our "family function".  They authorized 3 pairs of shoes at $80 a piece.   so i went out and bought 240$ worth right before Y"T and am gonna get a check!!   ;D

They also said that i can get a credit on the airline.
Any suggestion on how much i can negotiate for as a credit?

BTW- Dan...i made my flight on the way back right after Y"T.  only needed to be there 30 min before.  :D
