The entire experience made we start thinking whether I should consider changing my preferred carrier. It could be JetBlue but would also consider DL as it seems like they have a very good premium product. I just feel that UA is charging a premium price for just a undifferentiated product. The p.s. product hasnít really changed in a positive way since it was first introduced (same planes, food quality comes and goes) despite all the Polaris marketing hype (okay slightly better amenities and pillows).
I switched nearly all my SFO-NYC from UA to B6. Mint is a better product that can usually be found at a meaningful discount. United certainly doesnít miss my business on that route because they keep filling the front of the plane on those utterly insane fares.
