Last night I had the pleasure to fly from SFO to JFK on United flight 810, A B767-200 N605UA. This was my first flight on United. Most are on either Delta, American, or TWA, Because I usually try to fly from SWF.(Newburgh, NY)
After this flight last night I think more and more of my future flights will be on UA. Excellent service, excellent food and the best of all was what I found on Channel 9 of the entertainment system,,,it was titled "From the cockpit" Most of you probably know what this is but for those of you who dont, it is the feed from the radio. You hear all the ATC correspondence that the pilot does! I listened to it the whole 5 hours!
Is United the only airline that does this? Its a great idea.
Incidentally...I was re-booked onto that UA flight by a very rude and uncooperative Delta agent after DA1130 was to be 2 hours late, missing my connection in SLC to JFK. She wanted me to wait until this morning for the next Delta flight, But I had to be home last night. I Missed flying the DA B727 but "from the cockpit" more than made up for it!
