  • Levy Flight said,

    Why has UA not yet released a issued a travel advisory? Living on the west coast I am frustrated that UA tries to push my travel via ORD or EWR rather than direct. While that might seem a good idea for them to maximize use of those hubs, from a travelers point of view I would rather avoid them during the winter like the plague. I would argue that UA should lay on more flights from west coast to EU to avoid having travelers trapped – a customer friendly use of a network. That way I’ll fly UA during the winter rather than LH.

  • United said,


    Thanks for compiling this information. Tomorrow is my first time flying United in ages, so I don’t know where on their website to check for a travel advisory. I understand it hasn’t been posted yet, but do you know where I can go on the UA website to check for it?

    Thanks again!
