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. I am sick of ground delay programs. Their runways have not been reconfigured since 1973, and traffic...Jump to post
I am sure if you talk to a certain mechanic for <acronym title="Frontier Airlines (USA)">F9</acronym>, he will be sure to throw another chalk into the engine of your outbound flight to <acronym title="Houston - George Bush Intercontinental (IAH / KIAH), USA - Texas">IAH</acronym>, thus giving you am...Jump to post
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.
Actually for a while, Warren Buffet wouldn't fly. He would drive everywhere. And from the pictures above, Southwest would probably be his choice over the Concorde. He is pretty tight on his wallet. His home in Omaha is not even that outstanding. Nothing big, just a place to live. But anyways, his co...Jump to post

I find it interesting that someone can base performance on a profit. I can pay $100 for a steak, but does that make it a great steak? Anyways, I work at a station where we had several Air Wisconsin Flights in daily. All of our expectations were met daily. On time performance was great and maybe had ...Jump to post
Nothing would be better than to see the Ole' attorney walking through the doors of the court room. None other than the man who transformed SWA into the airline they are today. Herb, do your duty and block that civil action suit down their pieholes.
There is a couple great websites for some flight tracking. I use them many times at the station when I flight may be running delayed or might be departing ORD. 1) Trip.com shows the plane in flight over certain features as mountains and rivers. It is cool because the plane actually moves on your scr...Jump to post
Yes our flight schedules were cut, and yes United has differed to regional jets, but let's also remember one thing. United Operates out of two hubs that are constantly on a delay program every day of the week. Not to mention delay programs that operate for hours. By the way for those who thought tha...Jump to post
I am surprised in this day and age that there is not a reality television show covering the trials and turbulations of an airline. I know buffs like us would throughly enjoy it, but at least something different than "Airport." It gets kind of repetitive watching people with lost luggage in LHR. Rega...Jump to post
Hey as an airline employee we all hear nicknames for certain carriers. Does anyone know some more besides some of the obvious carriers I have below? Great Lakes - Great Mistakes, Great Breaks, Scum Water Air United - Untied Northwest - Northworst Air Wisconsin - Air Whiskey Please add some more to m...Jump to post
Yes, let's be concerned about the runway program first. An annual savings of more than $300 million. I cannot tell you how afraid I am listening to clearance when a plane is en-route to ORD. "United 718, your release time is scheduled for 0317Z, we will notify you for any improvements." errrrr... wh...Jump to post
I bet the staff at the Springer production tell their guests, "Yes Mr. Cletus, you will be flying on Greyhound Air out of downtown Little Rock." I believe there will be a few stops on your way to Chicago." I think the Springer show would be a lot more interesting if they just reimbursed them for the...Jump to post
Although it was about a year ago, this is just too funny that I have to share with all of you. After the plane had pulled into the gate, the captain and myself were standing on the jet bridge wishing the passengers farewell, when all of the sudden this dork walks off of the plane(which happened to b...Jump to post
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?
They should have bought the kind in the box. It never goes flat.Jump to post
Just to rehash some of the problems here. With the threat of United laying off mechanics in the future, FBO's all over the country are doing just as pitiful as the current airline industry itself. I have been to many FBO's in the last year that have either sent home employees early from their day of...Jump to post
With the threat of Delta naming their LCC "Song," what will United choose as their LCC name? Friendly-Air Cheers.. Mickey P.S. Similar to the Frontier fleet supporting different animals on the tail. Maybe in true southern fashion, the Song fleet can display famous singers from the south. Such as Con...Jump to post
I will never forget how LNK became a miniature hub for United in a matter of 30 minutes. Within that time we received 2 A320's, a 757, 2 737's and a Canadair Regional Jet. Until the US airspace was opened for flight, employees were assigned by the Operations at United to stay aboard the aircraft ov...Jump to post
United as well breaks down their numbers as well. Standby as I do my best to try and remember them off of the top of my head. 0-99 are flights to Hawaii, Austraila and Asia 100-800 tend to be long range domestic flights, for example LAX-BOS, LAX-IAD 801-999 flights going to Europe and South America ...Jump to post
