United Family Day in SFO - October 7th

Update 10/01/12
Hey Everyone,
Just wanted to update you that we have closed this event to signups and will be notifying confirmed attendees later today or tomorrow. We will also send an email out to people that are on the waitlist. If you are confirmed, but are no longer attending please email us back and let us know. This will allow us to clear the next person on the list.

Hi Everyone,

United will be hosting its annual Family Day Open House for United Employees and their families this year on Sunday October 7th from 11am to 5pm at our SFO Maintenance center. As in years past, we expect a large turn-out at this event, but have secured a limited number of tickets for members here and a guest to attend.

This year’s setup is similar to last, in that we will have a large number of aircraft on display (from United aircraft to stunt planes and civilian models). In addition to the displays there will be tours of the maintenance facility that will allow you to get up close and personal with some of our jet engines and tour a United wide body aircraft.

To attend, please send an email to us at [email protected] that includes your name, an email address, and your guest’s name (if applicable). Requests will be handed out on a first come, first serve basis and we'll let you know by October 1st if we are able to confirm you. Once confirmed you’ll receive an email with all the specifics. We look forward to seeing you there.

Shannon Kelly
Director, Customer Insights
United Airlines

Once again I'd like to thank the UA Team for inviting the Frequent Fliers and Customers out to this year's event!

I already have a SEA-SFO-EWR itinerary booked so I'll have to get on an earlier SEA-SFO flight to make it to this year's event but already being in SFO is a bonus on that day!

Thank you and thank you United for inviting us again ^ but sadly, I'm gonna have to miss this one as although I'm flying back on 10/6, I don't arrive until 00:30 on Sunday morning and knowing me, I'll be a wreck (or before the comments start, more of a wreck than normal ).

Also, if there is going to be a plane pull this year, I charge my fellow Flyertalkers that Team Flyertalk is the reigning champion three years in a row so don't let me bring out my retired team captain's goalie stick if I hear we didn't win

Worth noting, this doesn't mean that Tootsie Pops won't make it to the event somehow.

Too funny...

I came home tonight and saw what turned out to be last year's thread with [REGISTRATION CLOSED] and sent a panicked PM to UA Insider thinking it referred to this year.

When I realized my colossal error I sent an apology PM for jumping the gun.

But just registered so am looking forward to seeing all of you there

Best day of the year! Thank you so much for inviting us again this year.

Email sent. Thanks Shannon and everyone at United.
