After flying on other domestic carriers this year (for the first time in at least 5 years), I wholeheartedly agree with you. But, I didn't plan for it to be this way. I really wanted to stay with UA, but my RPU success rate this year dropped to 5% or less, so I resolved to just buy F, if it's reasonable. I would've preferred to stay with UA with this move, but, lately, they are rarely the cheapest.

For example, on two of my AA flights this year, which were last-minute bookings, UA Y was more expensive than AA F! As a previously loyal UA flyer, I found that shocking, and it really opened my eyes to seeking the cheapest fares, regardless of carrier.

I still value E+ on the shorter flights and will use UA for those but I did find DL's Y seat more comfortable than UA's.
