Although surely most folks don't seriously want to argue that two wrongs make a right.

Or maybe they do....

On the other side, someone who has gotten their tickets at the price he knows is wrong has no moral right to get on the high horse.
Exactly.

I'm sure the United made their cost/benefit analyzes of the situation and decided that pissing of a few hundred customers would be a more desirable outcome than honoring thousands of free first class tickets
I think that's probably pretty close indeed.
