I haven't been on United Airlines in many a year. Back when I rode them more frequently I found that "Channel 9", the ATC channel, was activated only about half the time.

Back to the subject of this thread, I rode what I think is my first go around in over 50 years of air travel on March 10. We were approaching Cleveland KCLE in very dense clouds. I couldn't see the wingtip it was so thick. Eventually we went back up. On the second approach we broke out of the clouds at a few hundred feet altitude. The route of my flight shown on Fl***tAw**e showed a one-loop holding pattern just before the airport. That flight/number was replaced the next day when the USA went on Summer Time (DST).
