Tue. July 16, 2002. UA# 1208 ORD-MHT A-320 1:27-4:30 Seat 16F Gate B20

Well I finally got the chance to write this to all of you! Ready? Here it comes.

Hi all! I left my house at 10:45 and got there around 11:15. Damn parking signs are confusing once u see them. Well my dad and i spent 10 mins screwing around in the parking lot! Anyways we get to the baggage claim which was easy. All we had to do was cross the road. (some 10 minutes later). I checked in and checked 1 bag to MHT. After I checked in I went through security and said bye to my dad. At security, there were these people going to STL and they had 20 minutes to get to the gate. After security, i felt like a was an adult. Me, a 15 year old going on a plane by himself. I walked a long ways to gate B20 which is nice in a secluded area next to B21-21a-22. I am sitting here next to Taxiway H1 (Hotel 1) and i have a nice view of Runway 9L/27R. I had a nice lunch which was a mega size lunchables (which contained 2 pizza's, cheese, sauce and a cola. After lunch our plane arrived from LGA. Registration is N416UA. At about 12:57. they started to board our flight. I stood in line for 5-10 minutes then I was on the plane. Pushback was at 1:24. 3 minutes early. Our F/A was named Kimberly. We are taxiing via Taxiway H1,J then onto 4L. Channel 9 was available ( recommend it)! We were 3 for takeoff. After take off we climbed to FL330. our flight time was 1 hour 45 minutes. We contacted Cleveland Center most of the time. We were cleared all the way to Jamestown, NY. We started our decent 30 miles West of Albany. We were told to descend to FL290 then FL 230 then i missed most parts then to 7000 and then 2000. The clouds were mixed colors. Some were snow white some were storm gray. We did a Visual Approach. The winds were 30 @8. We landed on Runway 6 and we used up the whole runway. We taxied to Gate B1 and met my grandparents. After I got off, I went to the baggage claim and waited but everyone crowded around Baggage claim 1 but bags from EWR were coming there so i went to Baggage claim 2 and got my bag.

Wednesday, July 31, 2002. UA#321 MHT-ORD Gate B1 5:25-6:58 A-320 Seat 16F

Well I am here at the airport waiting for flight UA#1208 inbound from ORD. Soon they will turn this plane around and board it back to ORD. I am sitting here next to B1 muching on a #2 meal from McDonalds. We had an arson dog on our plane! The dog's name was Chase. Registration: N462UA. It seems like that they are doing construction to make a new runway. I was a selectee for security. i did what they told me to and instead of taking off my shoes, I hadto raise them and they wanded my feet. I got wanded everywhere. I was able to board. Flight time was 1 hour 55 minutes. We taxied to Rw 6. and waited for Southwest 2175 to arrive. It was the new colors of Southwest ( the blue one) after they landed, we took off and then we contacted Boston Center. Channel 9 was available. We started our climb to FL 230. then to FL 310. The weather was Scattered clouds and temp was 94°F then as we approached Chicago, it got reduced to 92°F. Drinks came around and I got a 7-up. Our ETA was around 6:40 local time. We're over Buffalo and our pilot came over the PA and said that we are going to see Niagra Falls and he did all of these turns. I didn't get to see them.  Sad I had my camera out too. We were told to decend to FL 200 then to FL 190. Who operates as Blue Ridge?? We were told to slow to 200 kts and then to 8,000. We were then told to intercept the 22L Localizer and then land on RW 27R. We decended to 7,000 and we cleared the ILS on 22L Localizer and we landed on 27R. the gear came down at 6:24 flaps 40. We touched down at 6:30. (gasp) 28 minutes early!

Comments Appreciated!!!

The construction you saw on the runway was the lengthening of Rwy 17/35 from 7000 ft to 9000 ft, in order to accomadate trans-con flights. A portion of the runway is now open for small aircraft and commuter planes, the rest will finish up early next year.
