Photog Has Rough Few Days

D.C. Photographer Melissa Golden had a rough few days over the weekend as U.S. Airways butchered her travel plans.
Or was it the other way around — did she destroy her own travel plans and blame on a convoluted airline policy?
The trouble began when she purchased a U.S. Airways ticket from D.C. to San Francisco, but had to fly to Atlanta on a different flight after she booked. The airline canceled her existing reservations. “Now I’m stranded,” she wrote on Twitter.

Soon she pleaded with the airlines to make things right.

Golden continued berating the airlines online, saying, “U.S. Airways seems to think it’s ok to cancel your whole itinerary & keep your $$ if you miss your first flight. How is this not theft?” But U.S. Airways didn’t take the matter lying down and publicly responded to her complaint…

But Golden’s pain wasn’t nearly over.
