I also find these discussions strange. This isn't a matter of anybody's preferences. It's just a simple necessity, a two year old can't be asked to sit separately from parents any more than a cactus...

Agreed, I don't like being seated next to someone with a lap child, I'm sure everyone finds it annoying. If airlines wanted to ban on that basis, I won't shed a tear, I'm just saying that the safety...

I don't understand this attitude at all. Everyone trades safety for money all the time, for themselves and for their kids. It's impossible not to. Some people might decide to drive their kids in a...

It's definitely safer for kids to have their own seat, but the unfortunate fact is that most people have to trade off safety for money sometimes. Plenty of people couldn't afford a separate airline...

My wife went down to the ocean floor in alvin for research on hydrothermal vents near the east pacific rise, something like 4000 meters below sea level. Arguably more remote, to humans anyway, than...

Last time I flew DEL-EWR, seatbelt sign was on the whole time, around 15 hours or so. Ridiculous.

I see your point, but it's not like he's some random shmoe. He was GS for a number of years previously, so it should seem quite plausible to UA that he is seriously considering doing $100k/year of...

If you recline and the person in front of you reclines, you have the same amount of space as if neither of you reclined. It's just shaped differently. Personally I find this "both-reclining" shape...

To me 2-5-2 is the clear winner. It is maybe slightly better or slightly worse than 3-3-3 or 2-4-3 when the plane is full. But the essential point is: when load is less than 100%, 2-5-2 is far and...

Be warned though that the 2-for-1 benefit is only for full fare J tickets, which are typically more than 2x the cost of the lowest BF fare. So in practice it's almost never useful -- there have been...

Why not? They promise to upgrade elites whenever they can. It doesn't seem unreasonable that when they can't provide the FC seat due to lack of space, they at least provide whatever other benefits...

yeah, OK, if you fly almost exclusively domestic then maybe CO Plat makes sense. But it takes a lot of flights where you would get the upgrade as a CO Plat but not as a UA 1K to compensate for 6...

And thinking about it, why would anyone planning to fly between 50k and 75k ever credit to Onepass either? 1P on UA is clearly better than Gold on CO, even if you're flying CO metal (where 1P has...

I don't see how CO can avoid giving out SWUs. Otherwise there is absolutely 0 reason why anyone planning to fly 100k+ would ever choose Onepass. Even if you fly 100% on CO, 1K gets all the benefits...
