Because Boeing never updated it. They were too busy pitching 737NGs to everyone.

At the time, there was no need for airlines to order them because many had very large fleets which were not in need...

Absolutely. Airbus isn't MUCH better, they're just in a slightly better position currently because the A320 is a bit more suited to updates than the 737 is. Boeing missed a huge opportunity by not...

Someone was definitely smoking in one of the DTW bathrooms last week. The whole place reeked.

I would say this probably happens to me about 50% of the time. Sometimes the lines aren't bad, but once at a TownePlace Suites I was standing there for 30 minutes.

I typically wouldn’t either. But if I needed to fly to ATL and DL were charging something ridiculous I would consider NK with a big front seat upgrade or something. In fact I may be more likely to...

Yeah I have NEVER received basis email about my bill until at a minimum 24 hours until after I’ve left. Not sure if that’s a profile setting or something but my final bills always arrive 1+ days...

Anyone who has ever tried to use a debit card to check in to a hotel knows there will be a hold applied to the card at check-in. Heck anyone who has tried to rent a car even knows the same. So I’m...

Agree that this is unacceptable.

Just two days ago I was in a hurry to get to the airport. I had extended my check out until 3pm however my key was not set up for this (sometimes it is and...

As the only other manufacturer of any aircraft in this market is Airbus, the airlines would just have to eventually be forced into it whether they wanted to or not. Airbus doesn't have the ability to...

I was never much of an AirTran flier but used them occasionally on MCO-ATL when DL's pricing was just stupid. WN really doesn't offer a whole lot now. Their pricing is often equal to or worse than...

Even so, if that's the case, a couple trips to Italy and a few domestic economy roundtrips are unlikely to yield the $6000 (each) in EQD needed to hit Platinum and attain Sapphire. Not sure if the...

As others have stated, the only status they're going to get is something low-mid tier. Kind of a waste of time if you ask me, especially for people booking W or J.

With such travel patterns, I...

The number of people sitting in coach directly affects how many people you are in competition with for an upgrade. While a 737 may have more F seats available on the aircraft, they could have dozens...

I'm still not totally sure I understand. On a 738 you would have 16F and roughly 150Y. On a 739 you would have 20F and roughly 160Y. On a 175 it 12F to only 64Y. Therefore your upgrade chances on the...

And why was the software even necessary in the first place? Because of the flight characteristics caused by physical design of the airplane. The 737 is a light short-haul aircraft that is being...

I‘m not sure I understand your point. The original A320 was fitted with high-bypass turbofans. Therefore yes, whoever designed it did foresee the need to design it with those in mind.

The aircraft was never originally designed to be fitted with high-bypass turbofan engines. It is too low to the ground to accommodate these appropriately. The A320 (while also a pretty ancient...

Not sure why you’d prefer any other domestic aircraft to the E-Jet. 737s and A320s/19s are awful in comparison. The E-Jet offers a much better product in both J and Y than any of the rest of the UA...

No, I never liked the third generation of the aircraft to begin with. That has nothing to do with the obvious safety shortcomings of the latest iteration of it. Now that the newest version has proven...

The aircraft was designed for short haul regional flying in the late 1960s. It was designed low to the ground for airports with no boarding bridges. It was not designed for large high-bypass turbofan...
