Cockpit Bars

Sat Oct 13, 2001 1:44 am

UA e-mailed me saying that cockpit bars would be on all of their planes within 10 days. What are cockpit bars? Here is the e-mail.

As you get back to business this fall, we'd like to
give you some important travel updates that will help
smooth your journeys on United. Here's the latest on:

- Enhanced cockpit security
- New United carry-on baggage policy
- E-Ticket(SM) reservations
- How to get flight updates via PDA or cell phone
- Special offer: double miles worldwide!
- Award Travel Sale: make your miles go further


United will have security bars in place on its entire
operating fleet within 10 days.


As an added security measure, you are now limited to one
reasonably sized (45 linear inches) carry-on item, in
addition to a purse or briefcase, on all United flights.
This restriction applies regardless of your class of
service for domestic and international travel.

For a complete description of the most recent security
policies, go to,10017,1821,00.html


As always, you can use an E-Ticket when you travel with
United. However, you must have proper documentation to
show you have purchased your travel. Valid proof of
purchase includes:

- A printout of your E-Ticket receipt
- A printout of an e-mail confirming your purchase
- A copy of your United or travel agency itinerary

If you book your flight at, you can print out
the confirmation page that appears after you've made your
purchase. Or, refer to the "My itineraries" section at, where you'll find a complete history of all
your online purchases.

Should you forget to bring documentation to the airport,
you can go to a United EasyCheck-in(SM) unit in the
airport lobby (where available) and print out your
receipt there. Or, just check in at a United ticket
counter in the airport lobby.

If you have a United E-Ticket but want to change your
travel plans and fly on a different airline, you will
need to obtain a paper ticket from United and present it
to the other carrier (Air Canada and Continental are


Now you can sign up for flight paging and get flight
reminders, gate information, notification of flight
changes and more sent to your alphanumeric pager, web-
enabled PDA, PC, laptop or cellular phone. To use this
free service, just register one time at,10017,1973,00.html


Don't miss this one: Register now to earn double miles
for travel to any United destination! Just purchase and
fly a qualifying roundtrip on any published fare, in any
booking class, on any United or United Express(R) flight
worldwide before November 15, 2001:


For a limited time, you're invited to redeem your miles
for United Saver Awards at greatly reduced mileage
levels. For example:

- Fly a roundtrip in United Economy(R) within the 48
United States, Alaska and Canada for just 15,000 miles
instead of the usual 25,000 miles.

- Fly a roundtrip between the U.S. and Asia in United
Economy for 40,000 miles instead of 60,000 miles.

For more information, follow this link to,10017,3731,00.html


Help your fellow Mileage Plus(R) members stay informed.
Just forward this e-mail and have them sign up for United
Offers and Announcements and Mileage Plus Communications

They are putting a counter in the cockpit so the pilots can have a beer if they feel stressed due to recent changes in security practices. You see pilots used to be able to sneak kegs in (under their shirts) however with the metal detector being turn onto the 'high' function they are unable to do this anymore.

Don't listen to these two idiots. The cockpit bar is being installed on cockpit doors. It is a horizontal bar that is made of steel and is painted red.

Is it just beer..or will cocktails be available too?
Most importantly: Do these bars have Happy Hour?

No cocktails just beer, happy hour is on the rocks due to the FAA not allowing all flight attendants to enter the cockpit.

^^ It depends if you want it to close at 11:00, if you want it to run later I suggest calling it a bar!
