The number of planes that DON'T carry Channel 9 anymore is staggering! I miss it when I fly other airlines, but apparently most domestic flights on UA don't have it anymore anyway.

But I won't take the bet that UA won't CALL it a weather delay, regardless of the plane's condition. The engine could fall off and if there is snow in the air they will call it "extreme weather in...

The altitude is what many have a problem with. Widely available drones can't go to 7000 feet, so I keep waiting for the "Roswellians" to show up! :D

I hope you mean only the 757s, and not the 767s or 777s. No reason they should need refueling on a trans-Atlantic.
