OT: Significant Others Bad Luck

Poor Mrs. lcohen999

She does 6 flights a year. Every time she flies without me, her flight goes mechanical. Every single time.

Her YYZ-LAS flight from this morning went from 840 to 1230 now.

After 100+ segments, I have had one mechanical issue.

Anyone else have spousal bad luck?

Other way around for me, my wife flies 1-2 times a year on her own and another 4-5 times with me. Never a problem, if she is with me, everything is smooth no issues. ( except 1/2 hour delay on YEG-LHR flight 2 weeks ago )

On my own this year every other flight something happens. I don't think I have been on time this year, at best 1/2 hour late.

We are doing biz/personal YEG-IAH-LGA-MSY-YEG in Dec all UA I'm hoping her traditional good luck holds up.

Can you let us know when she flies ... I'll make sure to book other flights

You mean you agree with your wife in her assessment.

Every time my wife flies with me, our flight is on time.

Four round trips to Europe this year so far. NAP, BRU and on to OPO, BRU again then train to WAW and KRK, DBV.

At least the AC legs were all within half an hour, even the BRU ones which are notoriously bad. The DBV flight ended up in Split because of weather -high wind-; they bused us -four hours- in the middle of the night.
