I'm really close to this move. I keep thinking about all the airlines I have never flown because of some absurd loyalty to an airline that just annoys the hell out of me.

This is my favorite flight TPAC flight. But I am lucky always to be up front. I'm not one who easily sleeps off my schedule. At home I can stay up until 3a but I'll still wake at 6.

I had one about a year ago SFO-SIN. The crew were all in a miserable mood. I asked for PJs & the fellow pitched them to me across my seatmate.

He quickly realized what he'd done & said "I didn't...

It was Austrian & I was very disappointed. But I will try it again on my return. I hope it was just a bad bottle.

Intense gastric distress. I like the taste. They don't like me & I'd have farted all the way to Singapore.

Nov 06 UA1 SFO-SIN
I didn't take a picture of the menu. It had the same old tired short rib so I chose the turbot. The fish was quite good though the tomato sauce was odd I thought. It was served...

I do the same. Though there is no excuse for poor service we never know what private hell a FA is experiencing that day. I have no cause to add to it.

Right! Save some greens, a bite of fruit & a glass of wine daily, I do not eat carbs. Post cheese plate there is nothing for me until the arrival meal. Fortunately for me I can space meals 12+ hours...

Miles. 90% of my domestic flights are connections to international. I think the most segments I have had in one year is 38.

Weighing carry on bags can be very inconsistent. When I am flying an airline with the 7kg policy I pack carefully as I have had my bag refused a few times.

I do not recall having encountered that experience in Vietnam, not a single time. My Thai is weak at best, but I can greet the FAs well enough & they always reciprocate in Thai.

Could be! I was told once that the flights were fully catered for each entree. Never made sense to me though.

Yes, it generally is. And I suspect many of us have experienced better food on Asian airlines (I've flown most). UA has mediocre food & I tolerate it. It is not a matter of low personal standards,...
