Teejay posted a series of tweets back-to-back that started about a few hours ago. She posted that the passengers had been seated in the flight when united airlines delayed the flight due to one of the passengers being unwell- after which, they were offloaded and were asked to sit in the airport again with no clarity on the matter.
Teejay was very disappointed with the airlines and also tweeted about how this is the first and the last time that she is flying with united airlines. She then went on to trash the airlines for escorting a very sick passenger to a 14 hour long flight. After being stranded for over 12 hours, she calls it a mental trauma.
Despite of multiple tweets back to back, United Airlines chose to reply to her after several hours asking her to formally request compensation, which infuriated her further. She tweeted back by saying, “Request compensation?? Are you serious? After sitting on a flight for 4 hours, with NO FOOD, then standing in line for 6 hours, still NO FOOD, you have the audacity to tell me to 'request' compensation?? You have sunk to a new low, even for you!! @united #UnitedAirlines”
Take a look at some of her tweets:

He had2 eventually get offloaded because he cdnt evn stand!! SHAME On YOU 4this reckless, insensitive behaviour!!— Teejay Sidhu (@bombaysunshine) June 19, 2019
These are the three people from #United trying to help about 400 passengers. People are tired, hungry, struggling with small children, but they are least bothered. Zero customer service, zero concern. @united pic.twitter.com/0RozkqQYYv— Teejay Sidhu (@bombaysunshine) June 19, 2019
I don't think a worse airline than @united exists in this world!! On top of that, you offer NO compensation at all! Every airline compensates, either monetarily or through an upgrade. #UnitedAirlines #unitedairlinessucks— Teejay Sidhu (@bombaysunshine) June 19, 2019
TV producer Vikas Gupta also replied to Teejay Sidhu’s tweet and slammed the airlines:
Is this how @EWRairport @CityofNewarkNJ lets an airline treats people when they stop at Newark. Passengers have fainted out of fatigue and just waiting. Well it would be nice someone decides to be a good human being there . https://t.co/or3oLaSHJM— Vikas Gupta (@lostboy54) June 19, 2019
For now, we can only hope that she can make it to her destination within time but it doesn’t seem very likely.
