But what would most likely happen is some unfortunate customer paying for F but perhaps not with status on United (like me being NZ*G) would end up getting the short straw followed by United ending...

The inflight service is still excellent compared to Polaris on UA where asking for a mattress pad is met with a stern scowl from the FAs and the food is increasingly cost cut.

The big thing is leg...

I definitely gave a lot of feedback about the lounge situation in Auckland International.

The thing that really frustrates me about all this is that even when it first opened, that AKL international lounge seemed undersized for the crowds -- seems like very poor planning to me

They can give you an orange “express connection” card which allows you to use the crew lane at immigration.
