    Get the team from Houston up here! I have never had the designated gate open when I arrive at Chicago. Come on!

    Proceed directly to the Penalty Box and don't pass go. Hopefully you are in first so you can at least get some free junk during your time here.

    If your on UA, channel 9 won't tell you the real reason your there. Your there to wait for your gate because the aircraft at your gate is most likely delayed.

    Hope your FO keeps checking to see when your gate is open or else you might not get notified from dispatch!

    The ground traffic officials must hate American Eagle. Penalty box. Every bloody time.

    Don't be mean to your flight attendant because you're here. It's not their fault.

    In "the box" watching others "go places" is definitely no fun

    Apparently this is where early flights get sent to wait for a gate. Bummer.

    If on UA, turn on channel 9, hear from ATC the real reason (and time) for your hold.
