I give UA credit for the effort expended and attention to detail in giving the Queen a proper sendoff. They did a fine job.

I am, however, struggling with the fact that she never got a water...

Absolutely. This is a social event more than getting people from A to B.

It's special, and having a fully packed Y cabin would make walking around and mingling all but impossible.

I'm actually rather surprised how far into the flight the wifi works. When I did it back in February, I feel like I had connectivity for at least 45 minutes to an hour.

I agree with the OP that UA's app is a much better one -- loads more functionality and acts like an app rather than AA's, which is really just a glorified mobile-optimized website.

Over the past few weeks, I had set alerts for various inventory on AA (Z, U, and C mainly) and BA (U).

In at least 4 cases, the inventory became available, but in only 1 case did an alert...

"Throttling"

Has anybody had experiences with AS "throttling" EK availability?

I was about to book 3x DXB-IAD in F; 2x from one account, and 1x from another.

I did a search on AS for 3 pax right before...

Perhaps when flights aren't arriving, that kind gentleman can dabble in some straightforward copywriting for the LH website. :)

Agreed, but using FCT for connections is really only available by hiking along the road (as opposed to when it opened and they were shuttling people to the FCT).

For years I have used the MUC FCL as an arrivals lounge (no onward ticket but wanted to shower immediately after the long-haul flight).

It's hard to isolate the product from the route.

If I needed to fly LAX-HKG and there were an AA 77W and a CX 77W flight, I'd take AA for the wifi and air nozzle. Airplane food is nothing more...

Thanks for that -- just nabbed 12L. I realize it's close to Y, but the plane is really empty so shouldn't be bad. On the return, I'm trying out a backwards facing seat -- sleep is less important to...

AA doesn't operate the 737-600, rather the 737 in their fleet is the -800.

I agree with the above; if it's a real AA ship, then the 321 domestic first will guarantee you seatback entertainment, if...

Both are decent rides, but I'd probably give a slight edge to JL's 787 with SkySuite. (If it's the crappy angled-flat 787 they throw on the SAN route, then skip.)

One thing I will say is that JL...
