Because I am IAH-based and will hit my million miles later this year, I'm semi-locked in to UA. But I believe sacking Munoz is absolutely appropriate. This incident is just the straw that broke the...

We do know that the other passengers were horrified. The videos clearly show their shocked looks. Had the man been a raving lunatic or making threats before he was assaulted, they would not have...

It was UA 3387 (operated by Mesa), IAH-PIT, on 6 July. This flight number seems to routinely go from Terminal A. Between now and mid-afternoon, UA has at least a dozen flights leaving from A, to...

No United check in at Terminal A at IAH

I searched for this and didn't find any posts that mentioned it (though perhaps my search skills are limited). My family just completed an IAH-PIT round trip that was fraught with United annoyances,...

Flew PIT-IAH today. We started (at IAH a few days ago) with a Plat, Gold, and kid on a single itinerary, plus a second kid on a reward ticket. The PNRs were split when we were put on the upgrade...

This complaint has come up many times, and I had known that this would likely negatively affect my reward mileage earnings, but I didn't realize how bad it would be until I just did one...

Lufthansa "myoffer" on 016 tickets

I have an upcoming IAH-NCE trip in early May. Because of wonderful government nonsense, I am required to book through a US carrier, but the flights can be on LH metal. LH's new premium economy...

I assume the change in layover time was due to a UA schedule change. They did this to me on flights through EWR a few weeks ago. I called them and they were most happy to switch me to different...

It's not. We're talking lowest available, Sat-night stay, four months from now. I've flown these routes dozens of times over the last 10 years and never (before early 2012) paid more than $300 a...

Not too many people go there? If that were the case, why would three different airlines run QHO-CLT nonstops (with WN starting next month)?

1,300 miles in a car with a 4 and 6 year old doesn't...

Carolina in my mind

Dear United,

North Carolina is a lovely state, beaches, mountains, good basketball and delicious pulled pork. I've even got some family there. I'd like to visit them sometime - heck, I'd even...

That's certainly a possibility. Amusingly, they have changed the departure time five times in the last two hours - never the gate or aircraft, just their estimate of how fast they can turn it. It...

30 min turn on a 767

I'm on UA46 (IAH-FRA) tonight. I received a message that it was going to be about an hour late leaving due to a "late arriving aircraft." Delays always seem to get longer and longer until the...

I had signed up for pre-check a few months ago, based on an earlier approval for a trusted traveller pilot program several years ago. I basically forgot about this since IAH isn't in the program...

At most airports, you land straight with no turns in the last few minutes of the flight. There are certainly exceptions. The SE approach to DCA flies between restricted airspace over the Capitol...

IAH-DCA aborted landing twice!

I wonder if any other FTers were on UA1569 on 6/28, IAH-DCA. DCA was landing to the SE (which is unusual), so the approach was the slalom down the Potomac to avoid restricted space. We aborted the...

Frankly, as a long time CO flyer, UA's response to this has been embarrassing. They claim ridiculous numbers of job losses from opening a second airport to international flights. Face it, as posted...

Is anyone else more than a little suspicious about the OP's story? He's flying from somewhere to MEM, via ATL. I'm pretty sure UA doesn't have any routes between ATL and MEM that don't involve ORD...

The fare class was YN (Easypass) and we do have a PPlus card, which was probably used for the taxes and fees. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I didn't think PPlus cardholders got EUA benefits and, even...
