We are travelling from Australia and arriving in LAX at 9.45am on August 25th. We had booked and paid for a direct flight from LAX to Las Vegas on United Airlines which was to depart LAX at 13.10pm, arriving LAS 14.22pm
Without even warning me, they have cancelled this flight altogether, and have rebooked us on an earlier flight which leaves at 12pm, has a stop over in Palm Springs and then flies onto Vegas.
Our dilemma is that I don't believe that there would be enough time to get off the plane, collect our baggage, pass through customs, get to another terminal, recheck our baggage and get on the next flight!! (please tell me if I am wrong...)
I have therefore requested a refund, but now the prices have nearly doubled since I booked. What should I do?
