Had the beef on DFW-GRU F 77W. It was awful, overcooked and didn't taste good at all. Rest of the meal was good, I'll post pictures in a couple days.

Hi youyou,

Very nice summary. I'm on the same boat, currently EXP and 1K, but will drop down to UA Plat on Sunday. There are pros and cons, but all and all I'm more than happy with the switch.
