An optometrist runs the UA website operation....
When you look at the UA website, you are under an eye exam to determine the prescription for your next pair of glass. It is A or B? B or A? A or B? .....

A = The probability you will get a PDB in F on your next flight is 20%
or
B = The probability you will get a PDB in F on your next flight is 1 in 5.

Thank you mods for adding a poll to this thread. What fun. 😅

I am quite intrigued by the lopsidedness of our FT poll response.

I also wonder how it compares to whatever responses UA got. 🤔

Definitely B, 1 in 5.

Well I'm in the majority when I made my selection. United is definitely run by some B grade execs, unfortunately there was not a C option.

After 16 hours of debating, and sleeping on it, I chose A. And then I figured everyone's choosing A, so I'll go with B. But I checked the poll, and looks like 2/3 of you did the same, so I went back to A. The die is cast.

(this is both on the poll and on the actual survey)

Maybe they can add C for both. Then those needing one-stop service between Asuncin and Bangkok can fly ASU-SFO-BKK.

I don't know - at least they spelled the options correctly.

Unlikely, nobody seems to be fired for tragic menu mistakes that we see time and time again. I'm sure United is getting the rejects from the companies that pay more and offer a better upside/work environment and/or choosing vendors by price instead of quality.

At UA I voted dozens of times.

I think they should have included "all of the above" or "none of the above" for us wafflers. Waffles? Was that the question? I vote yes on waffles.

At first I thought my ad blocker was doing something weird, but I disabled everything and kept getting it. It almost seems like I get multiple ones, one on top of the other. If I leave my screen for a while, I have to click the x multiple times, possibly to get rid of multiple nested surveys? Selecting an option didn't seem to make it go away.

It was annoying to me at at the time, but now that I know this is happening to everyone, I find it kind of funny.

Another thing I'm getting a lot since yesterday is step-up authentications. Anyone else being prompted to enter their security questions every time, even when using the same computer (with cookies enabled)?

26 June ATL-DEN Dodgers United Charters Menu
Keep looking for the "Cesar" dressing on this menu (whomever typed it up: United, team, caterer, whatever poor slacker, etc.), and the single haricot vert.

The only one happy about this is Qualtrics. Wonder what kind of licensing United has.
