You can still fly the friendly skies

The story about United Airlines in the Nov. 1 Gazette business section has confused some readers, according to Globe Travel, which has received several calls from Colorado Springs residents.

Customers still can buy airline tickets from United and still walk up to the United ticket counter when checking in for their flights. The difference is that the people behind the counter are not be United employees. They work for SkyWest Airlines, which is operating the flights in an arrangement with United.

United decided, effective Oct. 31, to contract out all United business in Colorado Springs to SkyWest Airlines. SkyWest Airlines already operates many United and Delta airline flights in Colorado Springs and throughout the nation.
