My connection to Detroit on March 30th was canceled from Houston to Detroit. Had to overnight and catch a connection to Chicago and then Detroit. All this was done without informing me. I got lucky and extended my stay until April 1st when I fly out the same time as before and get my connection in Houston to be home at around midnight April 1. Just an FYI for anyone else caught up in United's debacle.

There is a large thread further down the page about this very thing!

Went through the same thing on our return trip last season. It was either spend a night in Houston or cancel the trip. I said wait, will you pay for my dinner and lodging in Houston? The agent said yes. When I found that by spending an extra day in Zihua, I could make the same connection they canceled one day later, and they covered my meal and an extra hotel night in Zihua. Let's see, a night in Houston or a night in Zihua? Tough choice. Fortunately I didn't have a need to get back the day of my original schedule.
