if you're planning to fly through Newark anytime soon, think again. Totally flooded and virtually shut down. Which is a big problem for everyone but especially for United, since it's their main East Coast hub.
Time to get the Boeing 314 Clipper out of mothballs and back in service?
United Airlines reopened for operations to and from Newark on Thursday (September 2nd) afternoon.
From one challenge to the next . . .
My son had a United flight from Rome this morning. Left FCO 19 minutes late but arrived at Newark 10 minutes early. No issues.
Yes, United is operating from here, but pack your patience pants. A flight leaving FOR Rome today supposedly @ 5:30 was a mess of document checking and lines. And they had my flight for Dubrovnik scheduled 2 hrs after that at the same gate. After watching that zoo for an hour, my gate changed to way back to where I arrived from DFW earlier (plus delayed)….. A good start to exercise before I have to sit for 9 hours! Lol! And hey, I am still going!
