United Airlines Flight Disappears

On my way to Brazil, I was going to catch a flight from SFO to Chicago O’Hare. I had to get up reasonably early as I could not check in for any other reason online. This meant I didn’t have a seat assigned yet. And although I had a pretty good connection time in Chicago to Sao Paulo, I didn’t want to push my chances.

Coming at the counter of United Airlines it appeared my whole flight was cancelled. WTF! How am I supposed to get to Chicago to catch my flight to Sao Paulo, Brazil? Luckily there was a later flight, where I even had the luck te get a Economy Plus seat assigned.

But seriously United, how can you cancel a complete flight?

    duh!!! when the flight cancels is the whole flight; or are you suggesting them to cancel just the rear half of the plane?

    I was more referring to the fact United Airlines canceled a flight while they first sold tickets for the flight. Even a couple of days before the flight I tried to check-in on the United Airlines website, and there was no signs of cancellation of the flight, up to 12 hours before it was supposed to leave.
