An interesting point. There is so much churn that takes place, which is the change for an airline to impress someone who has not flown them before. That for me was in 2012 when UA was cratering, I...

+1. I will look further, but this is a "catch" that was not clear from the language UA put out. I assumed the difference would be rebated, which is important when looking at expensive international...

I have been traveling, just noticed that AA did this on 3/1, but limited to 3/1-14, then Delta did a change fee waiver for international flights on 3/2. What UA did - last - is actually the most...

This is exactly what United did. They are hopping to get in revenue now, which they can book this quarter and if they have to then give "credit" in another quarter they will deal with it then.

And...

I just got of SEA-SFO, the change fee waiver came out just as we were bordering. But what was most interesting, was that when I booked, the plane was 2/3 full, when I checked in E+ was 2/3 full and...

While I think this is what Kirby thinks - make people pay for UA status and lots of people will decide to buy "a couple of really expensive tickets" to get status on UA - it has nothing to do with...

Get with the program, United has too many pesky elite fliers. Gotta thin the herd so that those who want to freely spend more $$$$ on UA can sit in those seats. You can't give anything away for...

I got 4 flights to/from SFO at at least $175 min to qualify for 2500 miles. What a joke.

What was the back like? Back of the envelope, it probably costs UA $20,000 an hour to fly that plane, probably $275K for the flight, not counting ground/landing fees.

I am with jsloan on this one. The reality is that outside of lots of hub-small city flights, all of the secondary routes have competition. E.g. If I need to go from SFO-TUS or SFO-STL outside of...
