Sat on tarmac for 7 hours until it eventually got cancelled. Wonder why they go unnoticed compared to ELAL.

Thousands of flights cancelled/delayed today, so it doesn't make news.
What happened to 3 hour rule?

First they were rebooked Swiss air tomorrow but called again and changed that to polish 1 hour after their original departure with 2.5 hour stopover so not too bad. Thanks

Not sure why you say that. I've gotten it in the past.

I learn something everday, UA will fly you on other alliances. They always just look for  *A for me.

When do they do this, and how to get it?

They will definitely try *A first. But if it's due to a technical issue (not weather), you can try to demand that you need to fly non-stop.
