That's understandable as the retrofits of the pmUA IPTE 772s continue: Last I checked, there were 17 completed, three in process, and 13 still flying as three-class.

Anyone out there get their LT UC the same way I did? I have no recollection at all what was promised at the time! I bought it in ~1990 with 100,000 EA miles (Ionosphere Club). When ONEpass was...

I'm hoping they lose some of the unnecessary chatter that is not needed for safety, security, or what passengers really need to know. How about a goal of 50% fewer words in the mandated announcements...
