The Connoisseur Class meals were actually pretty darn good. After dinner the FA's would go around with a large box of Godiva chocolates. The box was then left in the galley for pax to nibble on. That...

I hear you. But, I am quite ok with the 3MM milestone. The UA 4MM milestone is just not a goal for me. I want my travel to be low stress and enjoyable, so I am sticking with DL for now.

It is funny that you mention this. A few weeks ago I was on an H fare using RPU's (weekday off-peak fly times SFO-IAH). I thought I would at least be in the top 5 on the upgrade list (being a 1K,...

About 4+ years. The miles were well aged! Mom and Dad gave up on UA after multiple bad experiences and started collecting on AA.

Give DL a try. Your travel experience from beginning to end will be stress-free and easy (and unlike UA!). DL is now my only choice for SFO-NYC. I prefer the 767 mainly for the seat.

+1. I fly enough UA and DL 737s in Y to say that I prefer the DL 737s – by a long shot. The seat width and pitch may be the same, but the overall feel in a DL 737 in Y to me is just much better. ...
