Hey everyone! I'll be going from LAX or SNA to GRB (Green Bay, WI, USA) in early November. I was wondering if I should fly UA and take my first ride on a 744 (from LAX-ORD) and connect on Air Wisconsin, or fly AA and fly on a 757, 737-800, or 767 but fly First Class and connect on American Eagle. However, if I fly UA, it will be in coach. Thanks in advance!
BTW, in case your wondering, I'm going to Green Bay to go watch the Packers beat Tampa Bay on 11/4.

A couple weeks back, UA's website said there was a 744 from LAX-ORD. I have a friend who works for UA, and he said it is the continuing part of the SYD-LAX-ORD run. I guess this just proves that UA does change the equipment a lot. I think I'll go with AA (probably because they're my fav. and I can fly First Class)...but who knows. Thanks again.

I would say UAL cause of better service personalities on board & airline staffs are very nice. American... hmmm
I have not made any flights with any carriers within the USA but to Chicago OHare(08-09-93) to connect to Terminal 5 International with Royal Jordanian to Middle East, same with NY JFK Terminal 5 TWA with Royal Jordanian Airlines (03-31-98).

I always tell people ot fly UA because I try to stay loyal to them and they have been good to my family over the years. BUT, if you can fly first class over coach in any airline situation, I say go for first.
If you can, try to take a 767 because you might get one configured for Int'l and get a PTV. Also for the Green Bay flight you're better with American Eagle because you're assured an ERJ vs a possiblity of being on a Dornier turboprop and the possibility of being on a CRJ/ARJ.

You should rephrase your question. FIRST OR COACH? Well lets see.... sounds like a Celebrity jeopardy question to me... Anyway, since you get First class I'd say AA. But for the same price you should be able to go Midwest Express, which I've heard is good.

I personally I'm not a big fan of both in terms of service or anything else. So I fly SWA, CO, NWA, Midwest, Midway and Jetblue for US domestic travel. For international it's Kuwait, Air India, Virgin, KLM, SAS, Emerates, Gulf or SIA.
: if you like cramped spaces and the feeling of being surrounded fly UA. AA is by far the superior airline,the more room in coach makes all the differen
: You'll enjoy UAL, especially the 744! Go with UAL!!
