"Will the travel world return to some semblance of the old normal?" It's really difficult to know where all of this is leading, and anyone who makes a confident "this is what's going to happen..."...

I don't believe that there are hard and fast rules even in the "simple" case of revenue tickets issued by UA. In the case of IRROPS, can you be rebooked only on UA? Into *A? Into any carrier? It all...

I find it fascinating that UA and Delta can look at the same market and come to such different conclusions about middle seat blocking. I likely won't fly UA until the pandemic subsides (even if it...

I flew for the first time today since the end of February, but not on UA---on Delta for the first time in years. GJT->SLC->IAH. Was a very nice experience (FA in first class second leg was awesome,...

No one seems to be saying that UA (or any of its competitors) are on death's door. There's speculation about what is going to happen in the upcoming months... let's face it, the rest of the year...

Others know way more about this than I do, but a competent management team doesn't simply spend cash down to zero and then declare bankruptcy and liquidate, right? Unless UA sees a reasonable path to...

I would not be so optimistic late in a presidential election year. The "US government" might not operate in ways that are entirely rational or expected.

100% in agreement.

I've read for years various posts on this board about how UA some way or another did something that was finally going to cause the poster to book away from United. I've always...

I don't see how people are optimistic regarding UA's survival as an independent airline. Sure, it could work out, but any prediction is guesswork. There's a very real possibility of a serious...

I agree 100%.

UA needs to be bailed out. The damage to the economy will be too severe if they go under. The damage to cities like Houston and Denver will be severe.

But UA shareholders do not...

I think two things need to be separated out.

It is not in the national interest for UA to go away. If we lose a major airline, it will make the recovery from the current crisis (and associated...

I wouldn't be too hard on UA management, at least for their reaction to coronavirus. UA and other airlines have now realized that this has the potential to become an existential crisis, if it's not...

I don't know that I'm saying anything that hasn't been said, but IMO Copa in J (recliners) is a step up from UA First/Business but a big step down from UA Polaris. If you are expecting a pleasant...

No one can blame UA for weather. That's silly.

The larger problem is lack of CSRs and especially, very high load factors. It takes three days to recover from a weather event because there is no...

Yeah, I understand that, but my post was really confusing. I didn't distinguish between PQPs and FPQP's. Fixed it.

I know I am in the minority here, but since I have one of those grandfathered cards, I am big time in favor of the new changes in qualification for 1K.

I get what you are saying, but the thing is that there's still likely some person out there who needs your seat and can't book it while you hold it. Whether or not you asked for the protection, I'd...

No, you should not ignore! This is the whole reason that a few years ago, UA instructed its agents not to protect anyone anymore (though obviously, agents do it all of the time). The problem is that...

All of the arguments trying to justify hidden city ticketing seem wrong to me. When you buy a ticket, you agree to the CoC. If you refuse to follow the CoC, you have broken a contract. Doesn't matter...

I rarely buy last minute business class fares (once a year or so). When I do, from IAH, I have found that UA has never been competitive in terms of price, and things have only gotten worse. You might...
