Looks like UA656 landing on 4R. That is not a very common approach runway.

If I was a pilot, this would've been the best week to slide off the runway and not get blamed for it as pretty much all the majors have had an excursion this week.

Really nothing to see with this one. Aircraft did not end up in the arrester bed so this would’ve been an easy problem for Joe Patroni.

Pax were bussed over to T1 and arrivals shifted over to 10C.

No, although prior to the opening of the “new 10s,” it was very common on east flow (land 4R and one of the 9s; depart 4L and then 10/now 10L).

If the circular runway finally gets created snow and ice will help with expedited runway exits.

I guess United has a systemic issue and their safety culture needs to be evaluated.

Joe Patroni better call the union 'cuz he's about to hit max duty hours! He's been in CVG, OMA, and ORD in one week. 737 crews better bring along a shovel, a bag of sand, and an extra set of floor mats to shove under the tires, because old Joe may just not to be able to get there if somebody else goes snowmobiling this week.

But seriously, very glad everyone is okay. Very scary weather here in Indiana, and very challenging for all parts of airline operations.

It’s interesting that every winter we get the 737 slip and slide while all other craft seem to do just fine.

I'd wager that it's simply a matter of probabilities based on how many there are. If there's say, 1,000 737's flying in the US at any moment, and lets say, 300 CRJ-900, then sure you'll see more possible issues from the 737. Math is a pain that way.

It's really just a 737-900ER issue. This happens like a few times a year with UAL and the 739ER at ORD during the snow. It's a pig on wheels and is tough to slow down. I recall flying on a brand new one from ATL-PBI 2 years ago for work on DL and it was in perfect weather and it was one of the hardest landings I've ever felt.

Touche. Not a good week for aviation. Maybe ATC is feeling the stress of working for free?

Why would this have anything to do with ATC?

It has everything to do with a plane that’s been overstretched that has stupid high approach speeds, and crappy steel brakes.

I think he was also at COU, helping Mesa get their CR9 out of the snow as well same day as CVG.. Busy man!

Probably has more to do with the snow on the ground......

Or, let the media run with an ATC issue for these excursions and get more public outcry to end the shutdown. Who cares about the real reason!

Seems flight crew over there need more training with winter weather... Off the runway/taxiway all over the place!
737-300/400/500 ... are NOT classics :)

Is it a runway over run or did it slide while taxiing?

Well, all the humorous comments aside, glad everyone is safe.
But it's really not the best of winters for the 737. Just last week we had a Smartlynx 737 slipping of the runway in SVO and also a Westjet 737 in Edmonton.

Time for a remake of the old classic. Joe can drive out the 737-900ER, start chewing on his unlit cigar butt, and then the famous line "That is one thing I like about the 737-900ER, it can do everything but read!"

RIP Joe Kennedy....

This is aimed at a.net in general, not specifically at you...

Carriers in other parts of the world routinely have extremely challenging weather (thunderstorms etc), when an excursion happens they're roasted for their poor airmanship and lack of piloting skills.

Whats OK in the USA due to bad weather simply isn't allowed elsewhere because the skillset in the USA is superior, right?
