Hi all,
I'm supposed to go to FAR from BOS on UA(UND visiting) in a few weeks, on flight 535 from BOS and flight 5944 operated by SkyWest from ORD. Over the past week flight 5944 has been cancelled a few times(3 times at least including today). What is going on? Is it a crew shortage, weather, or is it that is so lightly booked that UA/SkyWest is cancelling it?

Thanks for your input!!

It's all being charged to Flow problems in and out of ORD.

Simple, ORD itself, a lot of times none of the time will the flights run on-time. Was it that much cheaper to fly into FAR then GFK?

It was an award ticked on UA(had excess UA miles I wanted to dump). Prices to fly into FAR were 400+ while GFK was 800+.

I'm sure that if your Skywest flight gets cancelled before your United flight does, they would tell you and then route you through DEN.
