United cancellation "due to weather"
« on: June 27, 2023, 10:58:51 PM »
Have flight tomorrow 2 pax to FLL from EWR. (1 miles 1 regular)
United was sold out on that flight a few days already and at check in today the were begging for volunteers, now we get an email that flight is cancelled due to weather and thunderstorms.

We are scheduled to meet people important. A few people are flying from NYC no other airlines have canceled. Weather seems fine.

How can they get away with it? Were they maybe just too oversold and are trying to get away blaming it on a weather forecast that does jot exist?

I can't find any substitute flights to get to Miami area tomorrow any airline or airport locally

Been holding for an hour .

After being in the cockpit YESTERDAY you're still stuck in Denver???

UA1812
Flight is on hold due the ground stop from EWR
With everyone already seated on the plane the pilot announced that he will allow kids to see the cockpit!

Yup. Almost all hotels in Denver are booked out
Not possible to get a car rental. It's a real meltdown

My United flight was delayed for 15 hours before they cancelled. BH I decided to drive a few hundred miles in Wisconsin and get an early am flight from Madison WI.

Just got this email:

Dear jkhein,

I know this week was hard. Really bad weather, air traffic control issues and some of our own operational challenges led to a rough experience for you and many of our customers.

Because this was a unique series of events and your travel plans were significantly disrupted, we'd like to give you and any other travelers on your reservation 30,000 free MileagePlus® miles each. You'll get an email from us next week with simple steps to claim your miles.

Miles never expire and can be used for flights, Wi-Fi, onboard food and drinks, seat upgrades and more.

Providing these miles is the right thing to do. After all, you put your trust in us and expect more.

Running an airline means managing things that are in our control and being ready to adapt to things that aren't, and I'm confident that we can be better at both moving forward.

I know you have options when you fly, so thank you for choosing United. We look forward to welcoming you on board soon.
