I fly DEN-YQR and vice-versa quite routinely, being based in YQR (Regina, Saskatchewan). Recently we were in San Diego and flew home last Sunday. As you likely know, Denver had a huge blizzard last Sunday and flights were significantly affected. My wife and I got home after a 3-hour delay in DEN, and given the weather we were unhappy but not upset. Weather happens, and not much can be done. A friend and his four family members were flying PSP-DEN-YQR later in the day and catching the second and last YQR flight of the day out of DEN. Thanks to a late inbound plane (due to the weather in DEN), they were over two hours delayed leaving PSP. When they got to the gate of their DEN-YQR flight, the door was closed, but the plane had not yet left. My friend and his family were left behind as the plane pushed off a few minutes later, despite my friend's protestations. Here is where things get really interesting. This was last Sunday. Two of my friend's family members got home... yesterday. The other three are in the air right now. These are the first flights to YQR that have had any empty seats. I'm going to write to UA and ask them to strongly consider adding some capacity on this route (the flights to and from ORD are equally full). Currently the two DEN and one ORD flights are almost always on 50-seat CRJ-200s, with the odd CRJ-700 subbing on the Denver route perhaps two or three times a month. Perhaps there are issues with availability of larger craft, but it seems time for United to upgauge the craft to take care of this capacity problem. In any event, I thought you'd find it interesting. I've never seen someone stuck somewhere for four days before - even though three of those days had fine weather. I'm not sure if UA could have gotten my friend's family to YYC, YEG, YWG, YYZ or somewhere else that Air Canada could have gotten them home, or if Air Canada too was fully booked. Anyone else had any similar stories? The joys of small airports!
