Are you serious? They're gone?
Nothing against USAir but I would rather fly either NW or UAL over them. Maybe we should wait a couple of days, maybe even next week and check out the load factors.
I'll check on UAL fares tomorrow for flights ORD-PIT. I do remember them being around the $80 range when I checked last week. Let's see what I find. But chances are the equipment will be a 737. I don't know how game you are for that. It also decreases our chances of being able to listen to the pilots on the headphones if it's a 737.
Yes, United does give you a 500 mile minimum on all flights less than 500 miles. They also have an offer now that allows you to accumulate double miles wherever you fly. But you have to fly before Dec. 15 and that's too soon for me.
But we'll see what we find.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!
