With the 7th SFO-ORD frequency, you can't even complain about the Bay Area route cuts anymore.
Yeah, but still no 763.
That is what put me over the top and just completed the email. Today was supposed to be a 3 Class sfo- ord and used a rpu. Could not check in yesterday because they switched to a 2class. Downgraded back to coach and tried for cpu. At 9pm 17 of the 34 seats were avail per united mobile and ended up in Y 8th on the list.
Programs: UA O-E 1K 0.98MM, AA EXP, SPG Plat (Ambassador), Hertz 5*

I don't think so, they already have their excuses lined up and out on the street. Plus, they probably have reasonable (or at least acceptable) excuses to blame the loss on. I think Q2 will be more telling. If a lot of high fare elites have moved their business elsewhere, it should be apparent in their RPM growth - or lack thereof. Then they will see if their TOD's for the masses is enough to offset the paid C/F business that went other places.
