Starting?

This looks like an excellent product, poised to give UA a nice whipping on ps. When do LAX flights start? Will they use a GDS? Will F get lounge access?

They're going to. Each seat already has an ethernet port.

How can you come to this conclusion? VX F vs. UA C:

* VX has more pitch
* VX has less seats
* VX has better IFE
* VX will have internet
* VX will likely have better food and wine
* VX will likley have better service (or at least on par)
* VX is cheaper

My bet is that VX F is close to UA F in some aspects, and far superior to C.
