That example happens all the time, though. I find that sometimes the rules between the two don't always match up, though. The coach may be refundable and the first may be non-refundable, for example....

You're mashing up a few different things. Club memberships can generate revenue even if access may otherwise be given away in other situations. I'd be shocked if the memberships themselves don't...

If UC is a revenue generator and people who may not even once fly UA are giving them money for a club membership, it is still revenue they could lose. One does not need to make money on a ticket in...

I have actually been contemplating keeping my United Club Visa card and just using the UA lounge at PDX even though I'm mostly flying AS now. There are rarely more than five people in the whole UA...

As an aside, I would certainly enjoy flying EUG-PAE and bypassing both PDX and SEA...

The complaint is that at the hub airports it is all elites. Tough to find those flights that aren't either to or from a hub airport, though. :)

That said, I guess I have noticed occasionally that...

I've had the sign 5 out of 6 times I've tried to use the lounge at PDX. I'm still a United Club member so I usually just make the trek over there, but actually was let in @7am on the 10th! A weekday!...

I didn't think much of this until I went to book a PDX-BDL flight tonight. The options are awful and I remembered this post.

I view those like I did "Basic Economy". ie: I don't buy them, ever. So coming from UA, not missing anything.

I don't disagree that PDX-DEN should be in the discussion, but I seriously doubt it is the 4th largest O/D market. Probably a LOT of those going on PDX-DEN flights are connecting on Southwest,...

I think more locals coveted scharffenberger before it closed / went corporate. Ghiradelli is a tourist thing - but also recognized to at least be better than Nestle Quik.

I had two non-Polaris 787 trips and a Polaris 777 trip this month. 787 SFO-HND and 777 NRT-SFO. Yes - the new seat is nicer. But... not enough nicer that I'd pick NRT over HND.

I was expecting a thread from a GS who nailed a 1K for pre-boarding, or from a passenger who witnessed some particularly egregious DYKWIA. Oh, it's just another 1K...
