United Airlines Operational Difficulties
I believe it is better to laugh than to cry, and I was entertained by this, so I’ll give due credit. At least this time the delay was classified in an honest manner in the United app:
Hence the title of this post, “United Airlines Operational Difficulties”
I’m not sure if I’m just beyond caring or just totally beaten down and used to the frequency that I experience delays. As much of a pain travel on United has been of late, I believe it has been somewhat better than it was last year at least for my own experience.. I haven’t compiled any statistics to prove that, that’s just my assumption.
On this particular flight, departure was delayed somewhat further from the photo above. Even worse, we had a long taxi delay before finally taking off. I’ve noticed this a lot lately at O’Hare, in particular when runway 9L/27R is used, which requires at least 10 or so minutes to get to from the terminals. Ultimately for this flight, we landed nearly an a hour after our scheduled time. Operational difficulties indeed.
Actual flight status
What’s been your experience with United lately? I realize there are thousands of flights each day, and opinions are formed on small experiences, but I think the general consensus is that the United operation continues to struggle much of the time.
Despite countless issues, I still have a special place in my heart for United. I can’t help it, we have a long history. It wasn’t the first airline I had elite status on, but I’ve flown with United more than any other airline by far. I fully admit that I am a pretty sentimental guy. I like United’s new safety video, and I’m about to reach a significant milestone with them. More details to come soon.
