Itís an escape route in an emergency. Panic has a communal on-button. You want as few obstacles as possible when a stampede happens!

I disagree. Itís a safety issue. Panic is infectious, particularly if thereís an engine fire. Human gazelles donít need obstacles!

It rarely happens. On most flights Iíve been on recently, the power is active during take-off and landing. On some aircraft, thereís a light on the aisle seat that lets the FAs know that something...

Iíve wondered why they donít insist on having the central divider in the Polaris cabin down during take-off and landing. That one seems like a no-brainer to me.

SIN flights can be crazy too. One of the flights I was on last year from SFO at the gate and they asked us to be patient as there were two dozen GS and over 40 1Ks.

Congrats on GS!

Itís really the big unknown. Allowing 1Ks to pre-board opened my eyes to the fact that there are so many. Bumping the PDQ from $10 to $12 and finally $15,000 didnít appear to have an impact, but...

If youíre looking for exclusively non-stop flights and you also want status on United, I canít think of how you have any choice. To maintain 1K status, you either spend or see it end.
