Just a side note.  I wonder if UA will change the flight number.  826 was an
old Pan Am flight number.  UA826 had not been used since the UA DC-8 collided
over Staten Island with the TWA L-1049 in December of 1960.  Often airlines
"retire" flight numbers after accidents, ie DL 191, AA 191, and DL 1288 (the
one that the engine exploded at PNS), UA 232.
