Sitting here in ORD waiting for my plane to SFO, which is almost 3 hours delayed.
I can see the flight is coming in as UA 628 from San Diego and departed with a huge delay as well.
I'm just asking myself. Since ORD is a UA hub, why do they have to wait for a flight to come in all the way from SAN instead of replacing it with other equipment? I can hardly imagine, they are not able to push their flight equipment around. That's what other airlines do when delays occur. Even smaller airlines at their hubs have a plane or two as replacements if delay situations occur.. With UA's fleet of 350+ planes you'd imagine there would be something available.
What do you think?
