I wonder if the UK is going to shut their borders, also. If not, what's the point of shutting down travel to the EU?

Thanks for all you guys are doing, and good luck with what is to come.

Sorry, but I don't see a problem with UA doing this.

This is not the apocalypse. Life will return to some semblance of normal, and if UA creates an expectation that if a flight is empty, BE fares...

You put your finger on it - the items are simple enough that they shouldn't be that variable, and yet they are. The service inconsistencies make it worse.

Plus, the buffet has become a true...

The problem with the SFO lounge is not that it's a restaurant, it's that it's not a very good restaurant anymore.

No, it was multi-course business class meals in recliners that had much better pitch than PP (I think 48"). I would say the meals were better than current-day Polaris. Having flown in C 20 years...

I just did 9G r/t to HKG. Footwell was great (6'3" with size 13EEE feet, so it's important to me). Galley/lav noise not an issue for me, either while sleeping or working.
