  • Changes in United management with Jeff Foland taking over the combined frequent flier program after the United Continental merger
  • The TSA full body scanners and protection from them
  • United Airlines' problematic website
  • And a man taken off the plane for allegedly asking if there would be a meal on his flight.

Amazing about the 12 years old girls in TPA. Each time I travel with my kids in and out to the U.S. (Im mexican) police offers, TSA, and immigration people are really scary to deal with. My 9 years old daughter is very scared each time we are going through immigration. They treat us like trash. Oh and in which airports there are these body scanners? I've been to IAH, NEW,LAX, MIA,ORD in the last 3 years and never seen one of these. My last airport was one week ago and was the MIA, worst airport for immigration and TSA is very rude and believe it or not 50% of them are latins.

Oh and in the next segment mention the bankruptcy of Mexico biggest airline: Mexicana a member of One World. http://www.mexicana.com/cs/Satellite?pagename=MexicanaG5_US_EN%2FPage%2FHomePageComposition_US_EN
