I own (and love) a bulldog. Love him so much that Id never, not in a zillion years, bring him on an airplane.

Bulldogs are a brachycephalic breed and cannot breathe well in normal atmospheres.

I'm not a pilot, don't play one on TV, but still have a tremendous appreciation for the skill it takes to fly some of the most complex machinery ever built. So thank you!

I've never had an issue and have one of each - a blanket and duvet. Nobody's ever challenged me about it. If they did, I'd just mention buying it on the United Shop online and I'm sure the...

Honestly - purchasing your own duvet or day blanket is the way to go. Then, never have to worry about it again.

Decked out right, these could be decent replacements for our beloved 757's... It's quickly become clear that the 757's aren't long for this world. Won't have the rocketship-like takeoff, but...

To be fair, I doubt United expected two dozen of their 777's to be grounded indefinitely. They have, what, 21 GE90 powered 777's that are parked in the desert right now? It takes some time to...

The E145 - if I can snag 18A - is alright.
