-1. Work on my desktop/Chrome


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

Yes it was since fixed
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

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.

I've clarified my thoughts. Do they address your question?

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?"

Just a slight formatting thing.. You can hit enter after the first line of text to make a slight space before the video. (After the line: " Another day, another crazy airline incident caught on tape: " )

Otherwise, well written and explained.. Now i finally understand what happened.
