As you know, I flew both airlines pre-merger and CO was the better airline up until maybe 2009-2010. After that it became a wash as CO management started down the wrong road.

I agree with both you guys on this. I also fly UA and AA alot and it's more likely to see empty FC seats on AA, but there's not a lot to choose between them in terms of the flight experience.

My 22" bag just fits wheels-first on many/most of the narrowbodies that I fly; unless folks have widebody-specific and narrowbody-specific carryon bags 24" doesn't cut it.
