What does "next flight available" means on United Airlines?

In my experience, United agents definitely have the capabilities to rebook you on any airline, especially, if its was the airline's fault.

I once missed a connection (last flight out) and was rebooked on AA. Doesn't happen often, but I think it all depends on your status and the cost it would incur to the airlines.

Hotel and meal vouchers will usually be the more economical method for airlines as they have contracts in place, and certainly, having you back on their next available seat would be no additional skin off their back.
