If you’re a sports fan who has a flight to make, perhaps United Airlines is your best bet.
Twitter user @ChipotIe tweeted his dissatisfaction with the internet aboard his United flight, apparently wanting to keep tabs on his Cleveland Indians as they took on the New York Yankees in the American League Divisional Playoff Series. While texting and tweeting worked, apparently game updates did not.
United not only apologized for the inconvenience, but responded with the score and inning.
Never miss a local story.
The Twitter user tried his luck again about an hour later. Again, United responded.
His team down, the Twitter user was losing confidence. He asked United if he thought Cleveland had a chance to come back despite trailing by three. The airline wasn’t sure.
United then delivered with a grand slam.
Cleveland won the game in extra innings 9-8 and leads the series against the Yankees 2-0.
