United Airlines honors 20 year old ticket


United Airline is keeping a promise they made to man 20 years ago.

John Walker found a plane ticket for a flight dating back to 1988. The ticket had a letter attached to it with unique details about the terms and conditions.

A line in the terms stated that a ticket can 'forever be applied' towards a future domestic flight.

Walker was excited about the discovery, so he contacted the airline.

An agent told him the deal went away when the company went bankrupt back in 2010.

But the airline agreed to honor its "forever" promise due to the rarity of walker's situation.
