Re: United Fleet, Network, and Discussion Thread - Q3 2021

United is pleading with employees to continue to be helpful, to listen to the customers, be friendly, smile (even with the mask on) and go the extra step for our customers. Employees are a big piece of the puzzle in changing how customers and the public at large view and feel about United Airlines....

Re: Why do airlines double-book their jetways?

My guess is that there was a mechanical delay or some other issue with another flight that occupied your original gate and your arriving flight got moved to the next available gate. The 0900 departure pushed back on time, your plane arrived into that gate at 0918, and the previous flight just hadn't...
