Can I sue United Airline irresponsible behavior in handling

Can I sue United Airline for there irresponsible behavior in handling customer service ?I took the a United Airline as the last lag after an very long international flight (over 24hours) with my wife and an infant.But flight could not land at CMX airport in hancock, MI, due to weather and landed at GreenBay, WI. The captain of the flight informed us that this flight has been cancelled and we will be returned back to Chicago ORD. So at that moment I called United Customer service to rebook a flight next day at the earliest flight possible. There were several seats left on the next day flight and I gave all the information needed to do the change including my flight reservation number and the my phone number which is linked to my united profile. I asked his several times "Are you sure you did the change ?" and He said its done. At the moment flight attendant announced to switch off mobile phones as the flight was backing off to the run way to head back to chicago. so I said the customer service "I have to hang up the phone now , did you do the reservations? " he said "Yes". Please refer to the recorded conversation of this call for confirmation.Then we landed at ORD around 1:30 am and I headed to the customer service to print my new boarding pass. Then the customer service agent said "There is no change has beed done to your ticket and there are no tickets left on next day flight." So now I am stranded at ORD with and Infant who has not been fed properly for 3 days because of traveling.

This is a legal question regarding the airline industry....

Hi this is a legal question regarding the airline industry....I flew from LAX to Seattle on 6/24/16 at 6 am. It's about a 140 minute flight.It was full. Everyone was seated except the person on the aisle seat in my row (I was in the middle). At the last second an enormous man..maybe 500-600 lbs?...sat next to me. His body took up 25% of my seat!!As a result of this corporal intrusion i was unable to use my laptop as my left arm was pinned against my side. My shirt was sweaty by the end of the trip. I couldn't even sleep because as he breathed my body moved back and forth accordingly. I arrived in Seattle tired, sleepy and agitated. I also didn't get any work done which was what I had hoped to accomplish.What is the legal responsibility of the airlines in situations like this? If i had a frozen shoulder that made my arm extend into the next seat is that something the other passenger just has to live with? Why should i be inconvenienced while respecting this person's rights? If their rights impose on me, that my rights supersedes theirs I would hope.I discreetly handed the flight attendant a note so as not to embarrass the man. It said, "I am not comfortable here'. She sympathetically raised her hands like, "I don't know what to do". A few minutes later her supervisor came back and handed me the card and blurted out,"I'm sorry it's a full flight, we don't have any other seats".That was unfortunate and clumsy as I was trying to save this man some embarrassment.Anyway what's your take on the situation. I filed a complaint with Alaska Airlines and they offered me $100 off one of their flights. I responded please credit the cost of the ticket and have heard nothing since.

An attorney wants to depose a foreign national. To set up a

An attorney wants to depose a foreign national. To set up a deposition, the attorney contacted the deponet directly by mail. The deponet did not respond. Should the attorney have sent a letter of Rogatory to the Central Authority of the deponets country to request deposition in accordance with the Hague Convention? (the deponets' country is a member of the Hague Convention).From what I read, there are also restrictions in accordance with local (civil) law on the deponet responding directly to such an action. FRCP 30 has limited value as non parties are not subject to the subpoena power of the u.s. courts.1. If the attorney did not file proper service by using a letter of Rogatory, can he claim the deponet refused to respond?2. If the attorney was supposed to file a letter of Rogatory and contacted the deponet directly, are there any sanctions against his failure to follow proper legal protocols?

My flight was about to be imminently delayed and I'd miss my

My flight was about to be imminently delayed and I'd miss my connecting flight. As I was working with the premium help desk ticketing agent on my telephone, I was searching in parallel and found an alternative flight on a partner airline. The ticketing agent said she couldn't reserve the seats for me because there were so few seats left, but instructed me that if possible, I should purchase it. She promised all fees and fare would be refunded later. I purchased the flight and now Delta is refusing to honor the agent's commitment. I have several emails and transcripts from my initial call proving the original agent's promise that all fare and fees would be refunded. What case should I make in small claims court?

How would you handle this? I made a first class airline

How would you handle this? I made a first class airline reservation with an agent who said the first class upgrade fee would be refunded for any legs where first class was not available. I recorded the call. Airline now refuses to refund for two legs where first class was full and we flew coach. The recorded call proves my case but may have been recorded illegally since we do not know where the call center making the reservation is located. Assuming my request for production of the airlines recording of the same call is rebuffed, would my recording be admissable?
