If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

One thing I don't like is you can't post a pic on the ms! So you got to come here to do that.

I didn't see the current broken image since you already fixed it, but the previous one mentioned above the issue seems to be that the URL for the image is admin.dansdeals.com, which is probably why you can see it but us laymen can't

Probably fixed. It's now working for me but was previously broken.

Nothing like banging out a post at 3am.

How does my research look and how many typos are there?

http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/112614

On the proofreading end:

Should be a comma not a colon after plus.
5:40 pm needs a space before pm. Same for 7:42 pm
Policy above calling the police should be policy about calling the police
"also is" should be "is also"
"at least tried" should be "at least try"
"good to see that" would be better as "good that"
"will the new compensation levels" should be "with the new compensation levels"
levels.United needs a space after the period


Great post!

From DDMS
"It’s also unclear from the report as to why the passengers onboard United flight 3411 were told that they wouldn’t be able to fly to Louisville until the next day, when several seats aboard flight 4771 were apparently just vacated by the crew."


Seems pretty clear, that's the whole reason the 4 crew members were rebooked.

"Given the fact that the 2:55 p.m. CDT departure remained on a maintenance delay, with a possibility of cancelling, United could not make that commitment."

True, but why not rebook them on flight 4448?

That's a separate point he made, and I imagine that was full.

Not sure. You just switched around the flight numbers so now I'm confused.

Was 4771 the one undergoing maintenance?
"Why weren’t they offered the ability to fly on flight 4771, with the caveat that it was undergoing maintenance?"
