My experience doesnít go far enough back, but the C cabins I remember, pre-lie-flat era, were about 48-55Ē of pitch, not 38Ē. And people have been complaining about the ďcattle carĒ 2-4-2 J...

I canít think of any reason that a C visa would invalidate an F visa, but, again, she should follow up with either USCIS or the appropriate US consulate.

Oh, for Pete’s sake. I never said that UA isn’t selling any BE seats. I said that their goal is to sell zero BE seats, and, sadly, they’re suceeding far beyond my wildest expectations.

This doesnít make any sense. If itís Y2, itís because they donít have three more seats to sell. I donít think the 787 base at EWR is operational yet, so thereís not really a smaller plane they could...
