United tends to spin it that way, and it's not crazy to say that getting this quietly taken care of ahead of time is a decent resolution.

Other option would have been to go to the gate, as he is still holding a confirmed ticket on the flight. At this point if there are no seats you can get involuntary DG compensation or push for compensation+rebooking with the GA. But this carries a risk of being stuck in Y so maybe is not the best path.

The tl;dr is that premium cabin IRROPS really stink.
