I'd imagine United is probably more concerned with their giant system wide outage preventing people from doing completely unnecessary things like checking in or printing their boarding passes.

My worst time flying was in 1996, flying back up to Connecticut from Georgia.  I had a layover in New Jersey, and we took a small turboprop that hit horrible turbulence.  I had just finished a few weeks of pretty intense work, so I passed out.  I, and the woman next to me, were the only people on the flight who didn't throw up several times.  I woke up to the overwhelming smell of vomit on the plane.

Silly subby, United doesn't clean their planes.

Wear your seatbelts, ya mooks. And look out for flying babies.

I was on a flight over the South China Sea when the plane suddenly dropped.  The tray that had just been put down in front of the guy across from me looked like it levitated 2 feet in the air.  The guy then asked for a cup of hot coffee and couldn't understand why they wouldn't give him one.

That's how Spirit Airlines usually smells.

Right, because it's painfully obvious that whenever flying is scary for you, it's also exacting evil.

I was aboard an Icelandair DC-9 back in the late 80's that hit some kind of turbulence.  We were right behind first class but we felt the plane seem to drop straight down.  My mother was walking to the bathroom at the time and said she floated about a foot off the ground.  The stewardesses told us that a couple of them had been preparing coffee in the rear galley and all of it ended up smashed on the floor.

They sure as hell didn't clean the last one I was on.

I was on a flight not long ago with some turbulence, so the captain put the seatbelt sign on.  No major incidents, but some jackass across the aisle from me felt the need to not only get up in the middle of it, open the overhead bin, and pull his suitcase half way out to get some essential god-knows-what.  i resolved then and there that if he or the suitcase ended up in my lap that I would kill him with my bare hands.

Luckily, I didn't have to.

//But seriously, when the guy flying the plane says, "we're expecting a rough ride, please remain seated for your own safety," what makes some cockbag decide that's a good time to not only get up, but open the bin full of heavy shiat that's above other people's heads?

"Oh, I'm well versed in a variety of ancient martial arts, and my strength is off the charts from my time in the Core, if we hit turbulence - which I don't think we will because I'm a master flight sim pilot and have flown this route countless times - I will definitely be able to prevent any of these puny bags from falling on the heads of these hapless sheeple surrounding me."

As someone who flew United out of Denver this morning, I'm feeling pretty lucky on several counts.

Then again, I'm not a flippant asshole who unbuckles my seatbelt during descent, just to stick it to The Man.

Ever flown that one airline with the airplanes and the flight attendants?  Man, they're the worst!

/And what's the deal with their food!?

God's really really pissed at someone (or everyone) in Denver... but it apparently hasn't gotten to 'smite' levels yet.

In my experience it's hard to unbuckle a seatbelt if one is never buckled in in the first place.

I like turbulence. It makes for a much more interesting flight.

/is that wrong?

A seatbelt won't protect you against flying babies.

Geez, babies fly now? I am NOT cleaning that up.

Did the captain forget to put these on?

It wasn't turbulence.  It was the plane and/or air crew suddenly realizing that they were going to Billings, Montana.

UA1676 checks in about 10 minutes into the file.  The pilot seems a little rattled.

Are news providers just giving up on grammar and editing? The headline for the article says 3 people injured. The article says 5 people were injured. Just because it's online doesn't mean they had to stop making sure the facts are straight.

Technically, he wasn't seated when he hit his head.

No shiat.  Did a hops flight on a P3, pilot said to buckle up - was gonna get rough.  Idiot next to me on bulkhead said he wasn't going to; 30 seconds later he bounces off overhead and breaks arm.

/got mast for it too...

Man, I wear my seat belt while seated but pilots that never turn off the sign make the sign meaningless. Bugs me.
