Was that SFO-EWR flight on the 23rd a DH or reposition flight? I thought UA only flew the 752 and 772 on PS transcon routes (SFO/LAX-EWR and SFO-BOS)?


#3

It was a deadhead flight.

Thank you for posting these every month. I have a question, on average how often do you think a trip gets changed due to delays or cancellations?


#5

Martin,

Not very often. I would say that I am only reassigned about once every two months.
