    From the CO Here is Your News and Offers E-mail that I received yesterday (highlighting mine):

    Wow - I've been flying United all theses years and didn't realize that United didn't have nonstop service between Chicago O'Hare and Los Angeles or San Francisco :D

    Translation: United's new non-stop service between ORD and SFO/LAX that we added only to squash Virgin America's attempt to break into our marketplace. Enjoy it now, as it will disappear as soon as Virgin gives up.

    Ah, Hannaman...I've read your posts expressing your rational, undying love for CO over the past few months, and these posts, combined with your avatar, have truly convinced me that your real name is actually "Hannaman" and that you actually look like Jeff Smisek. I know that sounds weird, but I read what you write, and I actually picture Smisek saying your words...again, that's strange and random, but I truly enjoy it...thanks!

    I'm not going back to LA, Ted, I've requested the Atlanta run...:D

    I'd agree with the OP, "new nonstop service" is poor wording choice on UACO's part. "Additional nonstop flights", something to that effect would have been more clear. Made me chuckle as I must have been imagining those nonstops I"ve been on myself!

    Kind of like on AA's website where they stipulate that Hawaiian Airlines can't be used for award flights "between the U.S. and Hawaii"...which would be news to Hawaiians that they've suddenly been booted from the Union.

    BTW is this just for residents of the three cities/two states or can anyone register for this DEQM bonus? I have such a flight on Tuesday and would certainly not mind the extra 1700 or so EQMs.

    I thought it was funny, too, and made me wonder what else CO doesn't know about its new bride.

    While I received no notice for this promo from UA, (probably 'cuz I'm 1K), I did get the same CO email on SAT...unfortunately, they still haven't fixed their link, so when you try to register,up pops an error message: "The registration period for this offer (52063) has not started. It starts on Wed., August 31, 2011." Which is actually the end date. Oh well, heard about it on FT a while back & of course, booked my cheap runs!
