It is clear that Virgin is going after United bread and butter routes. Everyone of their announced routes is a United standard. Their IFE system is about five generations ahead of United's.

Add to this mix JetBlue, and American's announced improvements and United must do something! And quick!!!

No money, no new planes on order and poor management. Let's see - let's take some more seats out of F, let's dilute the FF program, let's not have matching sales. (I watched BA have sales to Europe and UA not even respond).

The article in yesterday's USAToday on improvements on TA service and BA which already has a better product to UA is making theirs even better.

Channel 9 can only go so far as IFE and the rotation of the radio stations is about once a year.
