I'm sitting in Denver as I have been for the past 5 hours. Interestingly enough United has three flights to Seattle and all of them are delayed and are departing out of three consecutive gates (B37, B38 and B39). To start out with United 509's (the 7:40pm departure to SEA) original plane got cancelled in Kansas City. So they then route a plane that was coming off a flight from San Diego to Seattle and delay the flight until 8:50pm. Well things get worse as the crew for the flight were coming in on United 88 from San Francisco, but had to divert to Colorado Springs because Denver went into a groundstop due to lightening and storms. Then the plane is ready to leave and fly to Denver, but then diverts a second time to Cheyenne Wyoming. So there is a plane, but no crew. The other two Seattle flights are facing similar problems.
What other messes are happening tonight? It is not a good day for United.
