The Star Wars Amenity kits are right up there with the Spiderman roll-out etc. :rolleyes: Whoever is in charge of kit themes really needs to better understand the clientele that most uses J service.

For me, best food/choices via sit-down restaurant would be ORD. By contrast IAH menu quite limited with emphasis on Mexican type fare. Have not been to LAX. EWR…well it’s Newark. ;)

105,600. Would have been 123,000 but used a saver award instead. Since 125,000 was out of reach, there was zero incentive to buy a ticket.

Am I the only one thoroughly confused by this new program? PlusPoints is easily understood. The process of attaining the requisite status level to generate the PlusPoints is a whole other thing.

Pure Corporate speak. This entire fiasco is not only complicated to figure out, but imbued with a lot of marketing lingo that essentially tells loyal flyers "we don't care". Over the past few years,...

Rest assured, something will definitely break in a way nobody can forsee. United's MP status changes are very significant, extremely confusing, and for the record..."the fun has only just begun". ;)

Always op for the 787 over a 757. Much better cabin atmosphere (higher pressure/higher humidity). If it’s the latest Polaris seating, all the better.
