Hello. My name isXXXXX
I recently took a flight to England from Philadelphia. I purchased a round trip ticket 6/2/13 to fly 6/23/13 and return 6/30/13($600.00). IT was a standby ticket which has blackout dates for the month of July.
If' you're waiting standby, and the flight is full, you'll have to wait for the following day. In this case it would have fell on the blackout date 7/1/13.
Knowing this I called on the 28th from England to board early to avoid being stuck. The agent advised me to travel on 7/1/13 because the blackout dates were a non-issue.
I arrived on 7/1, and wasn't permitted to fly due to the blackout dates. The airline
acknowledged their mistake, however didn't permit me to board without buying a regular one-way ticket for $1000.00. In the process I was originally told that The airport would let me fly due to the error, I just have to do it in person at the airport. The game of the call center telling me to fly, and the airport not permitting went on for a few days.
I ended up purchasing a 1000.00 to get home. As a result, I wasn't able to start my new job because of the delay. I explained the situation, but they had to fill he position.
Do I have grounds to sue or lost wages?
