Exactly. Things wear out, and that's why they are replaced. Think of how the IPTE seats have worn, and how many things don't work as well as when they were new. Lavs are no different, and they are...

I get it as to why UA runs out of items they aren't charging for, but what's the excuse for running out of items they are charging for?

Fly a LH A346 in business, and then compare it to a tired UA 777 lab. You'll see the difference.

I can always tell when a UA GA is experienced. He/she will orient the lanes in such a manner to keep a lane open for disabled and GS. As bad as IAD is in the C/D slum, many of the gates there...

It's generally been this way ever since they abandoned the pmUA process. Even before the merger, I remember A320 IAD-SFO flights that were so GS/1K heavy that the GA's boarded by rows. Contrast...
