Yeah, United sucks. They end up having to send the planes back in time from the spaceport just so they'll arrive on schedule.
Also, there is only one inflight movie for the entire six-year trip (turbulence in the van Allen belts is causing all space-station flights to be rerouted around Saturn until further notice). Do you have any idea how agonizing it is to have to sit through 27,000 showings of 'Howard the Duck' on simulated-IMAX projection goggles and fifty-channel surround sound? DO YOU?! And to make it even worse, the seat backs lean forward at a 45-degree angle to the seat and won't recline back an inch unless you enjoy having your head between the knees of the guy in the next row, who in this case weighed four hundred bloody pounds and apparently hadn't bathed since the Truman Administration, and...
