Time to book those FRA-ORD tickets for Thursday! ;)

Looks like UA944 is heading this way (to FRA) and will hang out at FRA.. One flight on Thursday FRA-ORD and it will be a downgraded 767. Could be a good bump day! Unless they take a 777 from the IAD-FRA inbound.

Makes me glad my flight on Friday is through IAD.
