I made the leap to AA at mid-year. I should have listen to other UA members before the start of the year and jumped earlier. The first 6 months of 2012 with the "new" UA was horrible. I'm glad I...

I've been really satisfied with my move to AA. Perhaps it's blind luck, but the routes I fly were cheaper (about 10% less) and it's so much easier to fly with them. Four flights last week, all...

United is so short sighted. I'm really surprised most of you are sticking with them. Interesting - maybe United really knows who it's got wrapped around it's fingures and if you've been with them...

DITTO! UA is at the bottom of the bucket - if you are still around UA knows they have you and there is no reason to bother reading or listening to long rants. It doesn't matter. You will continue...

Zero and really happy about it. Just took my last two miserable flights with UA this week. Will cap off around 50,000 this year and I'm very uncertain if I'll return next year. This has been the...

What is wrong with UA? Why do they feel the need to change my seat selection without contacting me? Just logged on to check my seats (me and my SO) for a 10+ hour flight tomorrow. I booked them...

AA simply can't compete with the shear number of mechanical delays and cancellations that UA is producing these days. It's staggering trying to think of the last time I had to fly on time. In fact...

Thanks! I might actually have a shot at it. There 5+ spots available and I'm top of the list. Of course my SO isn't even on the list, so I'll deal with that at the airport tomorrow. This may help.

My reservation (1K) with my SO (Non-Elite) got split at T-24 today. What's the routine that I should do, if we are still waiting on an upgrade? Do I tell the agent at the airport to somehow...

My upgrade rate on UA is miserable. maybe 10% and usually not the flights that matter. The system is a mess - too easy for something to get screwed up. Every time I fly with my SO the reservation...

Unfortunately I've experienced that too many times. Does anyone at UA work these days or are most of them taking after the boss-man (Smi$ek)? No one is ever at that counter unless the line is crazy...

Nothing is sacred with the new Untied, every last bastion of the old UA must be destroyed and those that protest against it will be verbally lashed out on by the Pro-Smi$ek camp on this forum. Let...
