The Chicago Sun-Times has a story about United Airlines taking five days (and counting, presumably) to get some stranded luggage from O'Hare International to United flyers visiting Nova Scotia. The story quotes Jill Erickson, who came here for a family reunion.
“I bought a $5 dollar shirt, and I’m wearing my grandmother’s shorts and some flip-flops,” said Erickson of Wichita, who said she has contacted United Airlines multiple times in the last few days. “My biggest problem is all the time I’ve spent on this when I could have been visiting with my grandmother.”
If United has an axe to grind against our province, it might have something to do with local musician Dave Carroll's YouTube hit "United Breaks Guitars."
