I personally would love to see it. UA
Certainly does have a good grip on Asia, and now the announcement of the application to start service to Ho Chi mine through HKG
shows growth in Asia for UA
. I am happy to see the ORD
nonstop as well as SFO
. The addition of NGO
, if service is demanded, would certainly be a great addition to an already respectable Asian timetable. UA
Would certainly have the corners of Japan covered. The more cities the better.
Star connecting flights are useless to many. I am a star gold from my travel on UA
, and it is next to impossible to upgrade on other star carriers unless you rub the agents the right way. UA
Status members can upgrade on LH
fairly easily, but on anything else it is impossible. Why on earth would I want to take a AC
flight out of NGO
and not be able to upgrade easily when I could on UA
? Alliances are great for accruing or redeeming miles, but upgrading is next to impossible. Having another star carrier at a potential airport does not make any difference for those of us who use our mileage to upgrade.
I am excited to see any and all additions to and within Asia on UA
On another similar note, Looking at airlines like DL
who only have one flight one time a day (ATL
) is a joke. DL
Calls itself a major US airline and they have absolute bare minimum service to Asia and no service to Oceania??
