But do know they were planning a refresh of the soft product at the end of this year.

So I live in the metro NYC area, and have yet to see this commercial since it supposedly had a (regional) launch 4 weeks ago...anyone else seen it recently? Wonder if it got yanked...

I'm in Manhattan and just saw it as I was FFWDing through commercials tonight. Can't remember if it was for a show recorded today or a few days ago, but it was recent either way.

Update: it came on again, just now. Apparently they're targeting House Hunters watchers

Haven't seen it, but have seen quite a few subway ads touting p.s. exclusively.

that's a nice dream to have, but it seems like a dream nonetheless.

How is this different than what we see today in business class?

In fact, that large size main was downsized by PMUA, and made larger after 3/3/12.

All I can gather is we don't have a 'specialty cocktail' listed on the menu, and no pre-arrival snack. But we're getting a lie flat seat and real personal entertainment screens. Crews are the same.

I say all of this as a critic as well. In fact, recently wrote to senior management about the need to mystery shop Delta on these routes, as they do a much better job than United or AA. And a better job than United PS business circa 2005.
The size of the main course was still the same - it's the plate that got bigger.

It's not a well known brand, and it's in a 187ml bottle, as opposed to a full size bottle.

I saw it last week during the NBC 11pm news. There is a large billboard near SFO advertising p.s. service as well.

I've seen it, live in NYC. United also has a bunch of ads at the bus stops in NYC that say "You can still find seats in this city - Rated #1 best seat availability for award travel", or something to that effect. They are plastered throughout the West Village.

Today, I learned about the following new television advertisement from BA:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1M0p...ature=youtu.be

In their own words: "Our latest TV advert illustrates how we've been investing to make your journey better."

Thought it might be interesting to have a conversation in which we compare and contrast this campaign with recent UA advertising and marketing materials.

Key points:

To pioneer.
To engineer.
To innovate.
To imagine.
To Fly.
To Serve.
Today.
Tomorrow.

How does this compare and contrast with the talking points that UA is offering?
