timswar: I guess flights that are outright cancelled don't count? A month ago my wife tried to fly to Newark (business, not choice). Her 7pm flight was delayed until 9:30pm then promptly cancelled. They ,over her to at 7am flight which was cancelled at 5 in the morning. They then moved her to that day's 7pm flight which was, naturally, cancelled at 5pm.The problem was that United had that plane continually going from Raleigh to Newark to Dayton. It had to count on ideal weather in each of those locations and this summer that's pretty unlikely.Basically, if there is ANY other option available I won't fly United. Primarily because I've never had a good experience on their planes but the cancellations don't help.
MBrady: USEless air out of Philly sucks.
BarkingUnicorn: My flight into Denver this week took off on time and landed 15 minutes early. It helps if you slip the captain a sawbuck.
Ivo Shandor: So the lemon-soaked paper napkins finally arrived?

Any Pie Left: The answer is to fly direct to destinations, non-stop, but this is also more complicated and expensive for airlines in terms of balancing the passenger load/ maximizing profit.Another reason I was against airline de-regulation, because we could have just mandated direct flights and be done with this nonsense.
