RE: US Airports In Most Need Of A Facelift

Before <acronym title="Chicago - O'Hare International (ORD / KORD), USA - Illinois">ORD</acronym> recieves any renovations, let's hope they get their runways reconfigured for flow control management.

RE: Is United Airlines Stupid?

Oh my goodness!!! A delay??!!! What was the airline thinking when the Transportation Security Org. missed a passenger?? Next time United better take care of that situation immediately!!!

Instead of visiting United for a voucher, you should have asked for a tax refund.

Hey hey guys,

Let's remember, this is only Denver. If we want to talk about runway problems, let us discuss O'hare. A runway configuration that has not been updated since 1973. Who knew that air traffic would only increase by 300% in the last thirty years?
