I mentioned previously that United Airlines does a fantastic job ensuring a quick recovery of backlogged passengers when events cause flight disruptions, and today is no exception. With St. Louis airport reopening today after the tornado struck on Friday night, United ferried in a Boeing 757 to make a St. Louis Lambert Field to Chicago O’Hare run. It likely enabled all passengers impacted Friday night & Saturday to reach their destinations. This short hop is currently only serviced by United’s regional carriers, so the 757 was probably ideal to clear the backlog.
Happy & safe Easter everyone.
