As if things couldn’t get worse for United, their headquarters building has bed bugs.
Chicago’s most recognizable building has a tiny problem it is trying to shake. Bed bugs were found on the 16th floor of the Willis Tower which is home to United Airlines.
…The Willis Tower brought in K-9’s to detect the infestation and exterminators have visited the site several times. United says it will continue those efforts until the bed bugs are eradicated.
The Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower, will hold the name of London-based Willis Group through 2024 based on their 2009 lease although United is now the largest tenant in the building.
I’m not sure whether bed bugs at United headquarters are better or worse than when a United Club at Dulles had rats, or when it had mice.
