Long before UA merged with CO and acquired the EWR hub, I have always used EWR every chance I could get because I always found it easier to get to Manhattan from Newark than from JFK. JFK was easier...

In addition to your point, there is also an issue of honesty. A customer who only brings in $6k of business, but who will never violate a rule or try to scam the airline in some way, might be worth...

This is not correct, AFAIK. Certainly the second meal SFO-HKG was a tray meal. I assume SIN is the same.

I agree about backup, but OP may be pleasantly surprised about UA Y meals.

I am very disappointed in this thread. Clear, inexcusable screwup by United.

And for everyone who thinks a paper BP solves everything, that BP still has a bar code that has to scan as valid. We...

And I fundamentally disagree with you about...

They definitely oversold their club seating, and decided people flying their competitors were the lowest priority. That is the the precise explanation for this.

If UA sold PP on that flight, I think our poster is going to get a travel voucher. Indeed, I would be shocked if UA doesn't offer one.
