    Received this email today:

    I would like to cordially invite you to our celebration at Newark Liberty International Airport's Terminal C on May 21 to commemorate 25 years of United's service and commitment to the region's original hub. The event will feature an address from Jeff Smisek, CEO of United Airlines, at 11 a.m. and an opportunity to be one of the first to view United's new uniforms. There will also be classic aviation memorabilia on display as well as a chance to win MileagePlus® award miles.

    Because you're one of our most valued members, I'd also like to extend a special invitation to an exclusive reception immediately following, featuring a private wine tasting with United's master wine sommelier, Doug Frost, and hors d'oeuvres.

    Space for the exclusive, invitation-only reception is limited, so please RSVP today. Thank you for your continued loyalty to United. I hope you can join us.

    Sincerely,
    Martin Hand
    Senior Vice President
    Customer Experience

    Sadly, I missed the sign up for the reception. Is anyone going to the celebration and/or reception?

    So when are they finally going to start wearing the new uniforms? Everyone has known they are coming for years now, but they've yet to actually start using them. Taking that step would go a long way toward making this feel like a single airline.

    Got the same invitation ....

    AND by the time I signed up ... I was too late as well. I wonder what "limited" invitation
    means for UA. I guess my e-mail was sent out late to me.

    Lucky for Jeff Smisek, because this valued customer had so much to say :(

    I'm not sure being at EWR for 25 years warrants celebration. ;)

    Hi everyone,

    As you’ve noticed, we’re holding a couple of events to celebrate 25 years of our presence at Newark’s Terminal C. These celebrations will occur on May 21st starting at 11:00am, at the Upper Level / Level 3 Ticket Counter in Terminal C.
    • The first event starts at 11:00am and is open to all, and features the speech by Jeff, presentation of our new uniforms, as well as airline memorabilia and prizes. (Quick update about the new uniforms – they will be adopted by our flight attendant and airport operations personnel starting in late June)
    • The second, RSVP-only event will be held immediately following, featuring our master sommelier Doug Frost, hors d’oeuvres and the opportunity to meet representatives from United.
    As yunicorner posted, we’ve already invited some local top-tier members to the RSVP-only event. Space is limited, however I still have four open spots for MilePoint members. So, if you haven’t already received an invitation and you’d like to attend, please PM me with your name as MileagePlus number, and I will add the first four PMs to the list.

    Thanks in advance, and please stop by if you’re traveling through EWR that day!

    And I realized yesterday that I have an engagement I can't break out of at that time. :-(

    Check your spam folder. I just found an invite this morning (sent on the 14th) when I went to clean it out.
    (Can't/have no interest in attending so I suppose google wins again.)

    My ISP's spam filter can be so picky that I don't even see what they think is spam in my spam folder.

    25 years? That's one hell of a delay! What's the compensation?

    Does anyone know if the second event is "on the other side" of security?

    I believe they are both outside of security

    Anyone been to a UA wine tasting before? Should we assume they'll break out the good stuff or the two buck chuck?

    The last wine tasting I did was when UA was CO...and we basically had the equivalent of the premium wines in the clubs.

    I thought about asking after the wine towards the end. Turns out I didn't like it enough to bother. ;)

    After 6 glasses during the event, I needed the bottles as a counterweight to keep me from falling over.
