Well, if you cannot afford it, don't fly UA. Save the money, fly US and spend $50 to upgrade. I am doing the same thing for a trip to MSY at the end of July.

Is the strategy successful? I am not sure. But I think the economy will take care of itself.
I defected from UA for the first time in 7 years on a flight to LAS in late May; I was not going to pay $500 to fly Ted from ORD when I could fly WN for half the price and get there on time with a free snackbox. I think the question here isn't necessarily affordability, but rather, is UA worth the extra $$$?
