UA has been crapping on SEA-LAX for a number of years, which is particularly galling if connecting to SYD. Coming back in July we had to endure a very uncomfortable 200 ride back to SEA, and when we arrived, we had to go down the wretched stairs and across the tarmac in the rain and then walk up the stairs. Requests for elevator access were brushed off; and rerequest involved waiting 'until someone can take care of you.' At least at LAX we had the luxury of a jet bridge. The problem with SFO connections is that sometimes that involves a trek to terminal one. Having made direct flights pretty miserable, naturally there now is less demand, and so the prophecy becomes self-fulfilling. And yes, they sometimes drop a 200 into the SEA-SFO scheduling as well. This is one that can't be blamed on Jeff Smisek--United was screwing around with this route well in advance of the merger.
For a company that began as Boeing Air Transport, you'd think that at WHQ SEA is a bad word.
Ha! This is getting funny...in the pathetic sense. Alaska seems to have no problem having about 10 flights daily, all on Jumbo 737s! UA emailed me to do a survey on my SEA-LAX flight. One of my complaints was that it was a CRJ-700..... well I guess they listened.
Yet another change I will like for reaffirming my reasons for leaving UA!
Look at the schedule for out in May/June....All CRJ-200.
