If UAL goes on strike will other airlines honor existing tickets?

    It is possible that some of United's unions will strike if a judge throws out their contracts today. I think that will mean the end of United.

    Unfortunately, I have a couple of tickets (Chicago to Boston) on June 10 that would be up in the air (no pun intended). Traditionally, would other airlines honor those in order to gain some loyalty or would I just be SOL?

    Why not call a few and ask?

    They are under no obligation to honor the tickets of course, but they might. Did you pay for the tickets with a credit card? You may be able to get reimbursed that way if nothing else.

    Actually, they are under an obligation. The airline bailout of 2001 obliged all airlines that accepted an aid package to agree to accept tickets from defunct carriers.
