Should United offer a tired photo of me, in E+, after a long week of travel, having not scored an upgrade to F as their advertising photo? I hope not.
Does the Lincoln commercial show an eight cylinder engine firing when the car only comes with 4 or 6 cylinder engines as a choice? Everyone knows that advertising portrays products in the best possible light. But despite all the inane examples you want to make, United is just lying about quantitative facts here.
