I'm flying SFO-LIS in the first week of the route starting in June. Will that route be guaranteed A339 and therefore the new J hard product? Any updates on if this route will actually start on time...

I'm slated to fly UA 927 FRA-SFO in June and I see in the wiki that it's listed as one of the current routes. Does this mean I'm guaranteed Polaris in business given they're selling premium economy...

Thanks for making me paranoid :o about my upcoming BOS-SFO flight. If UA does downgrade J->Y due to operation issues, what is the procedure? Is it by status, currently selected seat, or something...

The seat map just updated to the new config. I'm currently sitting in 7E but after scanning this thread it seems pretty mixed. 35C/D are available, but there doesn't seem to be any reviews here?...

Thanks for the feedback. I'll get to try Polaris since I'm flying UA SFO-FRA on the way there, but given it'll be a daytime return maybe I'll just do LH J given I'll be up eating/working/watching...

We have a new policy that we have to use Concur and our company's travel agency and they're terrible. I can price out BCN-FRA-SFO on LH, but not BCN-FRA-SFO on LH/UA. The only itineraries showing up...

Is the Polaris hard product worth going out of my way for? I need to fly BCN-SFO next month, and the logical option is BCN-FRA-SFO on LH's A346 from a timing perspective. I can arrive later and route...

I see LX follows UA's optimism in posting minimal delays that don't match reality. Inbound LX 38 is 4.75 hours late, and doesn't land until 7:45PM. Unless they can taxi to the gate and turn the plane...

Flight Delayed: Minimum Layover Time to visit Zurich?

I'm flying LX for the first time (SFO-ZRH-NCE) and purposefully booked a 6 hour layover to go in and visit Zurich for a few hours and get dinner. However, it looks like the outbound LX 38 flight...

Totally agree, I don't expect it to clear, which is why I'm asking about buying E+ :). But I'm holding out a sliver of hope given it's a GS' instrument, and it's mid-week at a crappy time.

Any update if more frames have been retrofitted since May 31st? Or to azj's point, are all further retrofits TBD until September?

Good to see BA rebooking folks onto non-neutral metal. I'm assuming this is only for premium cabin pax though.

From what I've seen, there's a high chance you're going to misconnect. I'd try to move onto earlier flights if possible. As nomad420 said, the delays have been mostly shorthaul, not longhaul flights.

I'm super curious to know this as well, especially since so many of the UA defenders have cited 14 CFR and 49 USC rules, which only pertain to the PIC and FAs via delegation, not ground crew or gate...

An email to tens of thousands of employees is most certainly going public. Oscar and team knew that before sending which makes it that much more tone deaf.

Prior to all of this my opinion of UA was rising with the launch of Polaris and more pmCO crew rotating through SFO. The huge drop is mostly because of Oscar's tweet and subsequent...
