Availability of ATC Communications on Channel 9 thread [2011 Flights]

As the previous ATC availability threads were rather lengthy, we have closed those and started anew here for you to post your 2011 experiences.

Please follow the posting protocol for this thread:

Please note that this thread is limited to:
1) listing the flights/dates on which ATC communications are or aren't offered;
2) describing any interaction with flight crew staffing the specific flights about channel 9 availability;
3) describing any on-board audio system or technical issues bearing on channel 9 availability.


All posts straying from the last three points are considered off-topic for this thread and will be handled per FlyerTalk Rules. This includes discussion of United labor-management relations issues (even as bearing on channel 9), and related meta-discussions of policy. If you do wish to post about something you hear on the ATC frequencies, please post to the active "Fun Things Heard on Channel 9" thread.
