Flying MSN-DEN-SEA today, the FA on the first leg apologized and served up the conventional cold cereal and yoghurt, but no fresh fruit or breads. When I got to DEN, I got diverted by some gate...

In our delight at the departure of Jeff Smisek, I think we are overlooking the context in which his administration became such an object of scorn among longtime UA flyers--namely, Wall Street. ...

I never took the flight, but I remember the LGA-ORD (or was it Midway) the 'businessman special flight"--men only, with cigars... I wonder what years that operated. My first UA flight was a DC-6...

Just to add another note of agreement with previous posts--LH in

adapting to the new realities

This conversation seems to be turning into a circular
back and forth. In hindsight had the OP opted for a
nonstop DL, arrival in the New York area might have
gone just fine. On the other hand,...

I recall about seven or eight years back, Mrs. 420 and I were on a DEN-SEA flight and were carrying more luggage than usual (4 pieces). Two of the pieces weighed about 40 lbs, but were packed in...

Based on the route structure, the décor and costume, as well as the 5 cent stamp for air mail, I would guess that this comes from the mid to late 1950s. UA began flying to Hawaii in 1950, but the...

Goodbye to the SEA FA base

This morning's Seattle Times has an item reporting that UA will close its

A route that 'never was' was the ORD-DEL nonstop that was to start in late 2001. 9/11 put paid to that one--at least that is what I have assumed was the case. I was booked on it for Jan. 2002, but,...

Acts of Random Meanness

I tried that at ORD a few years ago and was told that I could not
invite my "guest" since I did not know him. We stepped aside, I
got his name and tried again. Same agent--not happy at all--let...
