    Update 10/01/12
    Hey Everyone,
    Just wanted to update you that we have closed this event to signups and will be notifying confirmed attendees later today or tomorrow. We will also send an email out to people that are on the waitlist. If you are confirmed, but are no longer attending please email us back and let us know. This will allow us to clear the next person on the list.

    Regards,

    Carlos F.




    Hi Everyone,

    United will be hosting its annual Family Day Open House for United Employees and their families this year on Sunday October 7th from 11am to 5pm at our SFO Maintenance center. As in years past, we expect a large turn-out at this event, but have secured a limited number of tickets for Milepoint members and a guest to attend.

    This year’s setup is similar to lasts, in that we will have a large number of aircraft on display (from United aircraft to stunt planes and civilian models). In addition to the displays there will be tours of the maintenance facility that will allow you to get up close and personal with some of our jet engines and tour a United wide body aircraft.

    To attend, please send an email to us at insider@united.com that includes your name, an email address, and your guest’s name (if applicable). Requests will be handed out on a first come, first serve basis and we'll let you know by October 1st if we are able to confirm you. Once confirmed you’ll receive an email with all the specifics. We look forward to seeing you there.

    Director, Customer Insights

    I would like to thank the United Team for inviting the Frequent Fliers out again to the Family Day!!!

    We had a blast last year and I for one hope to be on the Plane Pull team again to defend our honor :p.

    Might be a great opportunity to showcase a Dreamliner. Hint, hint! :)

    Too bad I'm getting married that weekend. Oh hell, I'll drag the new bride out from NY, I'm sure she wouldn't hate me for the rest of our lives or anything....

    But seriously, I had a blast last year, and I really wish I could go again. Have fun everyone!

    Thanks Shannon. Although we live in the Bay Area, we've never been to this event, so I just sent you an e-mail.

    BTW, I don't recall that the old United ever invited the community to SFO Family Day. Certain members of the community were go-betweens.

    FWIW, UA has been inviting MPers/FTers every year for at least the last 3 years.

    Sent an email from somewhere in the North Sea between the Faroes and Iceland! Very thankful that at least some of us will be included.

    While it's about to become Oct. 2 in Chicago in 12 minutes I have no fear that they will send out e-mails tomorrow about the Family Day invitations ;).

    Yes, I did. Problem was that I didn't send in a request for this year (I did go last year though).

    Carlos just sent out another e-mail pointing out the error (it looks like it wasn't just me, judging from the 'undisclosed recipients' "To" line).

    Nice, so you got invited without asking :) On the other hand, I did ask for an invitation and didn't get anything yet. So perhaps they so far only invited people based on last year's request (aka not me).

    So any word on whether the Dreamliner will make an appearance?

    I got the email from Carlos saying I wasn't invited, but I didn't get an invitation. :)

    Perhaps you didn't get an invitation because you weren't invited? ;)

    (I think I get what you mean)
