Re: United Fleet Upgrade Status - 2018

So, to be sure, that means Polaris seats, the new Premium Economy seats on the current 788 & 789 fleets by 2020? That's the goal, I'm sure. They've got their work cut out. It'll be telling to me how many aircraft they're able to mod next winter, because the next two winters are their best oppor...

There are no more customs forms when you enter the US Of course there are. Many airports now have customs kiosks, but airlines still regularly distribute the I-94 (Customs Declaration) form.

Re: Woman fined $500 for saving Delta snack

Just a correction. The Customs form is not an I-94. The I-94 was for Immigration purposes and that form is an internet based form. You are correct in stating that when using the Kiosk, you are asked the same questions as the physical Customs form. If you answer “Yes” to any of the questions, an X w...
