The spouse just told me about a radio message that went out over the flight-to-flight frequency across the pond stating that United Airlines had declared bankruptcy today (Sunday). He said the UAL pilots were in a frenzy trying to confirm if it was true. The hoax crew stated it was on BBC. One of the UAL crews called their dispatch, which told them it was a prank. Nobody knows what airline crew started it, but it''s totally tacky. The last thing anyone needs is that kind of stress while flying. Dumb.
