I was wondering the same thing...this is the problem with forums such as this. While they can be a source of great, insider, reliable information, they can just as easily supply fact-less info, and just plain rumors, which is what this "big announcement" smelled like from the beginning...

I didn't bother reading the previous thread discussing the announcement, with over 200 replies, was there any information from it?  confused

The only thing about UA that was even released today was Tilton's year-end compensation. N1120A, I apologize for the UA bash in the 200+ thread, but I just don't see what UA is getting at with all these products. I feel UA needs to stick to one product and do it better than anyone else. 'Nuff said, flame/respond away.

The thing is, different markets have different demands. Things like p.s. have worked for them on LAX/SFO-JFK, but outside of perhaps IAD and an even a slimmer chance at BOS, full 3 class service just isn't going to work. I have heard from UA people that Ted has done well for them, but I am still incredibly skeptical about the costs involved in that. The explus concept actually helps them keep the product steady over a wider variety of flights, but I think that there are markets where explus is flying where mainline really should be doing the work (ORD-MSY is a very good example). Again, keeping one product is a good thing, but there are times where that just isn't the optimal thing to do in a competitive market.

Could the BIG announcement have been the cut in MP Benefits on Friday?

Not even 10 replies and the thread is already getting hijacked. In answer to the actual Topic Question...

Aside from a industry wide list of compensation of CEO's ....nothing came out. The original thread starter on the long thread stated it was a rumor.

Most if not all of the threads on this board announcing other announcements in the future have turned out to be fiction. They create a life of their own as seen by 200 replies. Can't we wait for a real announcement and then comment on it?

Or maybe, as usual, it was just another unreliable a.net rumor that someone heard from a janitor. Nothing new...
