Lengthy delays for UA 881 to NRT and UA 835 to PVG today 8/22 (sat)

UA 881 ORD-NRT delay for 4 hrs til 4pm
UA 835 ORD-PVG delay for 8 hrs til 6:30pm

When 881 arrives in NRT it would be 7pm, miss out all the asia connection

I just came back from a MR around 3:30pm in ORD, saw at the 835 gate C10, UA actually had 4 inflight galley carts lay around, one with water bottles, one with sodas, one with sandwhiches, one with cartons of OJ, also a big box with bags of chips laying on the floor. I also saw several UA people looks like service director handling the crowd, answering questions. Good to see at least UA is trying to do something. ^

After that, went to RCC at C16, ask about what is that about. The agent told me 881 had mechanical, had to take another 744, 835 had a mechaical, then take another 744, but the LH plane clipped the UA 744 wing or fuselage, not sure, had to take another 744, so therefore 3 744 down in ORD. I bet those gone mechanical are those N17XUA and N18XUA, those are close to 20 years old. I wonder what happen tomorrow.

881 finally left with N119UA, and 835 left with N178UA.
