I dont know what is going on with UA
recently. In July I had 3 trips on them. All 3 of them ran into some kind of problem or another, mechanical or something else.One trip I ended up getting home 19 hours late from LAX
.Another time we sat for 3 hours waiting in OMA
for teh storms to clear in ORD
. When the weather cleared, there was a mechanical and the flight was canceled. We overnighted in OMA
The worst yesterday was leaving JAC
. The computer was down and they checked us in the old fashioned way------by hand. As a result. everyone had to go through secondary screening. If the plane had been full we would still be in JAC
. However, it was a light load and we left only 30 minutes late.
Got to Denver in time to make my connection. The incoming aircraft developed a hydraulic problem inbound. After about 45 minutes of UA
trying to work on the problem. They did substitute another plane and we left one hour late.
I was expecting someone today on the canceled Flight 946. They will not be arriving until midnight tonight.When I heard that news I really got livid and called UA
customer service. I am an elite FF
and they offered me $200 in travel vouchers for my string of bad luck. I will give them one more chance and if my IAD
trip has any problems, I will take my business elsewhere. I might add I am booked on UA
946 later this month.
I really dont know what is going on with UA
. For a long, long time despite bankruptcy and all things were operating quite well. However, as I said, things seem to be heading south.
