I hope this means Munoz understands Polaris's hard product already needs rework. DL's closed door suite and even AA's product is far better, let's not even discuss the ME or (some) Asian carrier's...

It isn't as much segmented across TPAC/TATL as it is across city pairs where the loads & distance demand the -ER.

I have seen them not bump people up that were $3 short (and they even requested a review, this was not just a "wasn't proactively bumped up" thing).

It was a compressor stall, while there was fire coming out the back of the engine momentarily, it was not an "engine fire" per se as the actual engine was not actually on fire.
