I Hear Albany’s Lovely This Time Of Year

The hits just keep on coming!

I don’t know what’s going on with United Airlines, but The Long-Suffering Wife’s flight’s been cancelled. She flew into Newark from Los Angeles and now a 2:34 layover turned into a 4+ hour layover into “We have no clue when or how we’ll get you there.”

Being as we’re in the middle of a family medical crisis, this was sort of the last thing in the world we needed.

Thanks, United!!

The only option to driving to Newark to pick her up (7+ hours each way) is to get her into Albany (3+ hours each way). So I have about ten minutes to get going.

Thank goodness I got a nice rental car!

…Except she just texted that the 20:05 departure to Albany is now delayed until 20:41. Which is exactly how the problem started manifesting on the now-cancelled flight to Burlington.

Is there some systematic failure that United and/or the Air Traffic Control system is having?

At least if the Albany flight gets cancelled I’ll be about halfway to Newark.

Can you say, “Charlie Foxtrot?” Sure, I knew you could.

    • Thanks! So far it still looks like there will be a flight to Albany tonight, albeit an hour late. If that collapses, next option is for Ronnie to find a plane back to LA, we just don’t have the time or energy to deal with anything more.
