    Hi Everyone,

    We’re doing it again! United will be hosting its annual Family Day Open House for United employees and their families this year at SFO. Here are the details:
    • Date: Sunday October 13th
    • Time: 11:00am to 4:30pm
    • Location: SFO Maintenance Center
    This year, we’re bringing back a lot of what you know and love, including aircraft on display (from multiple United narrow- and wide-bodies, to stunt planes and civilian models) and maintenance facility tours. Featured guests also include the Patriots precision flying team, which was founded by a United pilot and is the only civilian jet demonstration team in the United States.

    As in years past, we expect a large turn-out at this event, but have secured a limited number of tickets for members here and a guest to attend. If you’d like to attend, please send us an email at insider@united.com with the following information:
    • Name
    • Email address
    • Guest’s name (if applicable)
    We’ll handle requests on a first come, first served basis, and let you know by October 3rd if we’re able to confirm you. Once confirmed, you’ll receive an email with all the specifics. We look forward to seeing you there!

    Hey Aaron, just to confirm, those of us who are attending the FFG Mini-Do the day before don't need to request tickets, right?

    Thanks!! Email sent.

    I'm actually flying in from HKG that day, and so hopefully I can SDC my connection to LAX to a much later time, otherwise I'm going to S.O.L.!

    Do you only receive confirmation if get a ticket or does one get an e-mail either way confirmed or not-confirmed to attend?

    Hi everyone,

    As promised, today’s the day we will begin sending confirmations for Family Day. We received record interest in this year’s event (which we love to see) but that also means we will have a lengthy “standby” list. Please bear with us as we work through the confirmation process so that we ensure our entire allotment of wristbands can be used next Sunday.

    We'll be working the check-in station for Family Day—looking forward to seeing many of you there!

    Hi Sean,

    We'll send you an email either way (confirmed or standby list). However, do note that because of the high demand and quick response, those who contacted us more than a few days after the initial post may not be very close to the top of the list. Think ORD-SFO on a Thursday :)

    I have a trip with ZFV still attached and the last schedule change wasn't enough to shake it lose, so I won't be able to get to SFO in time.

    You could take an earlier train & flight. Just pick up your Amtrak ticket from the machine early (day before) and have an agent at the station issue one on another train. Once you get to the airport early, SDC the flight.
