^ that.

So even if a FA announces that nuts cannot be consumed on board, is this announcement made in every one of the 100 potential languages that the passengers on board may speak? How do you...

That post is just a polite way of saying what all the snarky comments are saying. My comment about the food being crap is just as valid as that flowery worded missive, in fact, its more brutal and...

I don't disagree but as for lest cost, I paid $342 each for these 2 round trip LAX-BOS tickets plus 40,000 miles for the upgrade for 2 on the way back. I haven't been able to get a Jet Blue fare to...

Ok, I searched but I didn't find this, so thank you. I think its sad that thread started in 2012 and there are still transcon 737 flights with no IFE. My flight did not have Wifi either. Pathetic.

I was urged to do so by other FT members as part of a targeted campaign to force United to focus on customer service via the channels available to us. Clearly it didn't work.

Thanks for the comments, historically my most common routes have been LAX-BOS, LAX-SEA, LAX-PDX, LAX-ORD and LAX-SFO. When I began flying UA out of LAX in the mid 90s it was the best possible choice...

I am starting to think my 720,000 miles and 15 years of flying United are truly going to go down the drain, and potentially sooner rather than later.

I would take a 753 over a 738/9 any day of the week, assuming your domestic leg is in Y. If not, then the 737 is the better choice.

Reason being the 737 Y seats are the most uncomfortable airline...

I noticed this today on a 753, the FA fast forwarded through the opening video to a point where Smisek was talking. Hard to see what we missed, but I am sure it was 787 related.

Same for me as well, finished Gold with 65,156 miles. I think all the Gold to Plat upgrades are on the same pricing tier.
