United takes the low road!! Replaces a 757-200 with a bus!!
« on: February 27, 2018, 11:16:40 PM »
UA flight 1165 from EWR took off early, a few hours ago at 8:30 PM bound for LAX. Around 9:00 they made an announcement over the PA that they will be returning because the smoke detectors went off. At around 9:30 they landed the plane Allentown (ABE), instead of EWR, after waiting some time, not allowed to leave the airport, they announced they are considering bussing them an hour and a half ride back to EWR, or maybe put them up in hotels overnight in ABE, then have a plane for them tomorrow. At around 11 PM they decided to bus them back to EWR, once there they will find hotels, and rebook flights throughout tomorrow. They are not adding a flight in for them tomorrow.

This is the reason spirit cemented themselves as a horrible airline. Bad move

Estimated 50+ bachurim on the flight.
Busses aren't being loaded yet, as the luggage has yet to come out.

Seems smoke filled up in the cockpit.
I guess it wasn't the bachurim. Thank God.

I noted that too. I feel it's safe to assume that's one up from spirit

Ouch. Did anyone tell UA that DD readers don't do buses?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Make sure to claim ff credit for the bus ride.

Actually a friend who recently joined DDF is a passenger on the flight. Now, he isn't happy with me, as I didn't take it lightly that he flew Spirit a few weeks back. Now he's telling me that UA isn't much better.

They are being put up regardless, may as well be in Allentown, and fly them from there, again, they aren't adding a flight for them

Update on the busses, they just pulled into EWR.
