RE: United Rising !!!!!!

Sat Jan 16, 1999 3:34 pm

I think United Airlines is rising to be the best airline in the world. But it really needs to work on it's in flight service espically domesitc. I have flown on A United Airlines 737-300, 737-500, 747-400 and 757-200. I have flown on United Airlines to Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angles, Orange County, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Singapore and I think in the past years United Airlines has really inproved. United Airlines is the world's largest airline in the world. United Airlines right now is really inproving it's fleet with all the new A319 and A320 aircraft and they still have some 747-400's, 757-200's and I think a few 777-200's on order. I think once they get all there new aircraft and retire all there old aircraft or some of them they will start to work on inproving there in-flight service and probally add something like Kris World on there aircraft. I think Kris World is the best in-flight system. I like there entertament system now but only on some flights.

Also United Airlines has America's best airports as it's hubs espically Chicago and Denver. They are remodeling there terminals at Los Angles and Seattle and I think other airports and also have there international hub in Tokyo on of the world's best airport.

I think United Airlines did the best thing in ordering the A320 aircraft. It is much better than the 757-200. The 757-200 is longer then the A320 but that is only good for the airline not for the passenger. The passenger doesn't care how long the aircraft is it matters how wide it is. The Airbus A320 is the best single aisle aircraft made and the best in United Airlines fleet. But they have the best fleet in the world I think and will get better once all the new aircraft come and the old ones are out. There commuter aicraft are even the best.

Also United Airlines has the best alliances in the world with the best airlines in the world.

I really do think United Airlines is the best and UA is always my first choice for flights but of course Alaska Airlines is close behind it. But it is RISING but they need to work a little bit more on there in-flight service. There route system is the best and also there aircraft are but I am sure they are planning to inprove there in-flight service more espically to Asia. I think United Airlines biggest competion isn't in the U.S but in Asia espically Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific Airways and Japan Airlines.

You are right on the "Rising" money my friend.
UAL's fleet blows the domestic competition away.
You're right about Alaskan. They have received very high marks from travelers.

For domestic travel, we have totally outbeat all other airlines for best hubs. We use about like 50% od ORD (right) one of the most popular traveld airport in the U.S, and then they have both coasts and are moving heavily into IAd and EWR.This gives us east coast IAD and EWR kinda, then we have west coast LAX, SFO, and Seattle, and we have midwest DEN, and of course ORD. So we are on the rise!
