Just learned UA 804 from NRT to IAD at 1600 hours June 22 delayed 17 hours until 0900 hours on June 23. That makes over 20 hours of delay for this trip. Way to go UA

FLT 38 delayed 3 1/2 hours due to MX and A/C swap. This flight has had rotten luck since the flight resumed last month.

Guess I was lucky UA38 was only delayed 30 minutes when I flew it a few weeks ago...

Looks like 6/21 UA 853 (SFO-XIY) is 5+ hours late, apparently due to a 10+ hour mx hit that delayed the inbound 852 (from XIY) from 6:40 AM arrival to 4:46 PM.

I flew that Monday - same thing 95 min late pulling into YYZ

Put us at gate 84 - I think I can put my 26.1 sticker on my carry on by the time I got to customs

absolutely. DL is orders of magnitude more reliable and punctual. UA's recent couple of days have been a horrific stretch of mechanical cancellations ... just after Mr. Munoz made it a priority to fix reliability.

YYZ based, I have no choice but to connect via one of UA hubs.
When routed IAD-YYZ / YYZ-IAD always some sort of delay. I no longer route via IAD. ORD & IAH more reliable.

Going home on Friday. YYZ-IAD-RDU, not expecting anything to be on time.

Could probably drive the 12hr this one in the same time it takes to fly, connect, clear customs at IAD. LOL!! Good luck.
