I don't much care about this personally, but it wasn't offered in Polaris on EWR-SFO today.

Will be interested to see over time if EWR crews actually provide PDBs.

Offered PDB SFO-MCO tonight. Gate agent was also particular good specifically calling out the number of 1Ks he had to pre-board 😂

edit: FAs even offered wine or beer as PDB options.

They went to everyone and asked what they wanted as a PDB rather than bring around a tray with drinks already poured. I overheard and saw a few people get beer/wine and I'm sure if someone wanted liquor they would have poured that too. Service overall on that flight was pretty solid from FA to GA to pilots. Hope the FAs don't get in trouble for opening the PDB menu up! I'll be writing in to 1k voice to compliment all of them for that flight.

Well the return flight back to Denver today from LAX, NO PDB. Hell there wasn't even the announcement that is made after the 10K level chime.

My friend got PDB on SFO-IAH, but not IAH-RIC.

Currently, UA premium cabin pax is batting ~0.500.
