Flight arriving to pick us up in Durango was 1 hour late.
Then a mechanical issue delayed us another hour.
By the time we finally arrived in Denver, our connecting flight to Kansas City had already left.
They did offer to put us in a hotel but indicated it could take up to 4 hours to get our luggage from one level of the Denver airport to another level where we could pick it up to go to the hotel. That would have us being transported to the hotel at 2:00am.
We had to be back to the airport at 6:00am to check in for the alternate flight home.
After waiting an hour for the luggage we decided to go on to the hotel. Then waited 40 minutes for the hotel shuttle. Had to go without our luggage because it still had not been delivered to the pick up area.
Due to the flights causing us to stay another night we were unable to spend time with our daughter and son-in-law who were in KC on Saturday night when we were SUPPOSED to be home. We had planned to have dinner and spend the evening together to celebrate Fathers Day.
Their flight was scheduled to leave KC on Sunday morning about the time we finally arrived. They had already had to go through security and we only had a few minutes to talk with them through a doorway.
In sharing our United delay story with others have heard that MANY no longer fly with United due to their inability to arrive and depart on time.
This will be our last flight with United.
