Mario Diaz is sacrificing Houston Intercontinental's golden goose to fatten up his resume. The world's largest airline will take its traffic (and tax base) elsewhere.

And we will be leaving the negros behind also.
Thank god, United is returning to an all-white airline.
We will shut down and leave all the major negro cities behind.
I am not sure who you are Angry White United Pilot, I think you are truly a chicken shit for hiding behind your words toward African Americans. I happen to be an African American and your ingnorace is said as hell. Have some balls and disclose who you are, you talk a lot of shit on this forum but refuse to disclose who you are. You are truly chicken shit, and of course I am sure your response to me is going to be chicken shit as well. I am calling you out, I live in Denver, Colorado and if you are as angry as you say you are just let me know, I work part time for Frontier Airlines and I can meet you any place anytime. Your a coward, you hide behind your words, so if you truly have a problem with Black people let me help you feel the sterotype, I will whip your ass anytime or anyplace, keep my name, look me up I live in Colorado you chicken shit ass pilot.

To whom it may concern, My name is Efrem B. Martin and I did not write this post addressing Angry White United Pilot. This was brought to my attention about 10minutes ago by a friend of mine whom happen to read this post. I am not sure why someone would use my name to address such nonesense. So to whomever this went out too I apoligize I did not, I repeat I did not send out the above post addressing Angry White United Pilot. Thank you Efrem B. Martin

If I have to fly to Houston from overseas, it will be on Emirates, Singapore Airlines or Lufthansa. United is a garbage.

The problem starts when one needs to connect to a domestic flight, i.e. to New Orleans, United dismantled the whole flight schedule that Continental used to have. You now pay more for a cattle-class seat on United for the 45 minute flight than Continental used to charge for first. Plus, United uses little Embraers with no overhead room. This is why I avoid United (and most other American carriers) like the plague.

... just to clarify, I am American but living in Europe, working in Asia.

Most Americans are completely clueless about air travel standards. They think United or any other American airline to Europe or to Asia is the way to travel...:)

At least we know the pilots up front on US airlines have thousands of hours of flight on a real passenger aircraft and not some stupid cessna 172 and have less than 1,000 hours.

United must diversify its route structure. Houston is so dependent on oil if oil slips Houston as a hub slips. besides who really wants to go to Houston what a sweltering sewer of a swamp. Even Texans make fun of it.

Hey, Mr tough Guy, calm down. One of these day's your going to meet your maker real quick with that attitude of yours! There our people out there that will just take an AR 15 Rifle and load a magazine with mk 262 otm rounds and put one right in your chest and you'll be dead before you hit the ground! You ain't shit! So watch what you say, Mr tough Guy! Don't start shit with anyone. Because it may be the last time you do so! You blacks all have this attitude issue. I truly believe that most blacks in America hate the White Man. I , myself, don't hate anyone. Remember, fight the good fight. Never go out and look for trouble, because you will surely find it! Good day, Everyone.
