No PTVs in Y on UA 744s, so prefer CO's IFE

Prefer UA's ff program, and Economy Plus is great if you can get it on those long flights

Prefer 744 to 777 in general, and zone 3 Y on UA's 744 is nice if you can't get Eco+

Prefer CO's consistency in service & cabin condition

For the first sector, CO fields a 735 (ho-hum) but UA fields a 777(better)

Tough call, mate!

How about UA outbound and CO inbound?

Id do CO all the way, Ive heard bad things about UA, and wouldn't fly them if I can help it. Although I will have to see if all that I have heard is true, so I will fly them 1 day Big grin:D

Fly to China via EWR when you live in DEN? Outbound travel time is 7hrs longer on CO and return is 5 hours longer. No matter what kind of IFE system on CO has; unless one is saving a bundle of money its not worth it. Think of it this way, 7 hours is nearly a full work day.

Since UA's longhaul is operated by a B747-400 instead of the B777 that CO flies, I'd take UA...


Smile - it confuses people!
