Hello First of all, make sure you subscribe this channel and to my new second channel, which will focus more on travel/hotel/city and random reviews! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiQZjj53XTG83I72jmzMs5A I'm currently in Chicago for the weekend. Why? Because it has been on my bucket list for so long and there was a good deal on United. For more Chicago related videos check the other channel. I'll upload a couple of videos over there. We all know american carriers aren't that amazing when it comes to domestic flights. (I think Delta has the best product, I'll test it soon to Hawaii/they have PTVs on most flights) United has PTVs too but only with DirectTV, if you wan't to watch movies you have to pay for it. Also there is no map or anything like it. I did not want to pay for it therefore the screen was useless to me. Also the free streaming personal device thing does not support Android 6.0. Absolutely no entertainment for me on this flight! I had plenty of time to "clean" my phone storage. There is free beverages and included snacks but you have to pay for food aboard United. I can't say if it's delicious because I didn't want to spend that much money on cheap food. If you have any further questions just drop a comment, I'm always happy to answer to it. Just give me some time ;) Don't forget to subscribe to make that face reveal finally happen!

Yet another Douglas aircraft crash... American Airlines Flight 191 was a regularly scheduled passenger flight from O'Hare International Airport in Chicago to Los Angeles International Airport. The McDonnell Douglas DC-10-10 crashed on May 25, 1979, moments after takeoff from Chicago. All 258 passengers and 13 crew on board were killed, along with two people on the ground. It is the deadliest aviation accident to have occurred in the United States. Investigators found that as the jet was beginning its takeoff rotation, engine number one on the left wing separated and flipped over the top of the wing. As the engine separated from the aircraft, it severed hydraulic fluid lines and damaged the left wing, resulting in a retraction of the slats. As the jet attempted to climb, the left wing stalled while the right wing, with its slats still deployed, continued to produce lift. The jetliner subsequently rolled to the left until it was partially inverted, reaching a bank angle of 112 degrees, before crashing in an open field by a trailer park near the end of the runway. The engine separation was attributed to damage to the pylon rigging structure holding the engine to the wing caused by faulty maintenance procedures at American Airlines. While maintenance issues and not the actual design of the aircraft were ultimately found responsible for the crash, the accident and subsequent grounding of all DC-10s by the Federal Aviation Administration added to an already unfavorable reputation of the DC-10 aircraft in the eyes of the public caused by several other incidents and accidents involving the type. The investigation also revealed other DC-10s with damage caused by the same faulty maintenance procedure. The faulty procedure was banned, and the aircraft type went on to have a long passenger career. It has since found a second career as a cargo airplane.
If you own a big dog and you want it to travel with you, you used to be able to go to the ticket counter, put him in his crate, and check him onto the same flight you were flying on. Now, most of the major carriers are moving towards transporting pets as cargo, which has pet owners checking in a good distance from the terminal. Kris Van Cleave reports.
It's finally time to close the book on 2016, a year of huge losses and turmoil. We took a chronological look back at, what we think will be, one of the most memorable and devastating years in history. We're sure there are events that we've missed, but here's what stood out to us.
