Maybe instead of counting outages, we should count times that the system actually functions.

Great, I'm flying Christmas Eve. Between this and the TSA I hope I make it.

United is by far the worst airline I have ever flown with. This situation would be an improvement over some of the crap I've dealt with from them over the years.

Flying Delta today so I'm getting a kick.

But yeah, for former Continental patrons the merger has been a rousing success...

I used to like Continental, but as is typical with mergers they take the worst from both companies.

Funny thing is, former Continental planes were operational today. Only former United planes were grounded. Apparently they use two different systems to calculate weight and balance and United's farked up

Expect a line of United pax begging to get on your flight.

For the life of me, I can't figure out why United decided to go with Continental's horrible ticketing system, website, and OnePass program. United's Mileage Plus was far superior, and their website was modern and easy to navigate -- Continental's looked like it was coded by a teenager in 1998...and now United's still does!

It's true, they merged and took the worst of both airlines. What a shame.

How United, which was in bankruptcy less than 10 years ago, was able to buy and ruin one of the few airlines that didn't need a bailout is way beyond me.

Flying United on Saturday from MCO to ORD to YVR. Not looking forward to it if they can't fix their shiat in time.

I flew United a few weeks ago on my honeymoon. The flight attendant found out and gave us a free bottle of wine.

What were we talking about again?

This is a blessing in disguise. If the computers are down, it might spare thousands of innocent victims from the horrors of flying United.

Delta for me is the worst. But hell, we're comparing all the folks in the "special class" when it comes to domestic airlines. Best of the worst and all that.

True airline service can only be had by flying an East Asian carrier (and maybe one or two of the carriers out of the middle east). And you dont even have to fly business or first to get good service.

I suppose there will be a "computer outage" surcharge added to all the fliers today.


it is what United does

My knees are still in pain from flying United three weeks ago. Turns out you shouldn't fly with them unless you have no legs, because their planes have the least legroom of any airline I've ever flown.

Oh, they have legroom. You have to pay to upgrade to the legroom aisle....

Unfortunately there's a limited number of those upgrades. And since I booked the flight through Luftansa, I didn't even know I'd be getting on a flight "operated by United" until I got to the airport.

Star Alliance needs to kick out United. Their other carriers are great.
