United actually offered someone a $10000 voucher for giving up her seat

United CEO accepted responsibility for dog's death on flight

March has not been a banner month for United Airlines in terms of public relations, but on Thursday, another overbooked flight ended with a customer getting an astronomical amount of free travel, NBC Washington reported.

But she was even more excited when she received a $10,000 travel voucher from the airline after she was asked to give up her seat on an overbooked flight.

United first offered her a $2,000 voucher and asked her to sign a form saying she volunteered her seat.

Unlike the story that made headlines past year when a doctor was dragged from a flight after already taking his seat, Preise was removed from the boarding line before she made it onto the plane.

A United Airlines aircraft takes off at Miami International Airport in Miami.

KB Toys says its planning a comeback! When a store goes out of business, so do the gift cards. Right now, the plan is to open about 1,000 pop-up stores ahead of Black Friday this year.

But when she got on the flight, she found out it was oversold.

"They are kicking me off this flight", she tweeted. If nobody bites, they will kick off the lowest fare passenger by pulling them out of the boarding line.

People stand in line at a United Airlines counter at LaGuardia Airport in NY.

Agents announced in the gate area that the flight was oversold, and they offered $800 vouchers, then raised it to $1,000 in travel credit, Preiss said. United couldn't board her because a seat broke on the plane, according to Preiss, and no one volunteered to give up a seat. They just offered me $10,000 in travel credit. She wrote on Twitter, "I am going to go INSANE at Pizza Hut".
