UA used to have a very good product between EWR
, and at one point they also served SAN
nonstop from EWR
At least one LAX
flight was operated with one of the various forms of 767 in UA
's fleet, the rest were 757 and later, A320. SFO
got mostly 757s and A320s, and SAN
I believe was a 757 while it operated.
My company briefly had an agreement with UA
, around 1996-1997, and had nonstop service to most of the cities we did business in at that time. As our division grew, so did our list of client cities, and eventually CO
became the best option due to their extensive nonstop route network and overall better package than United.
I recall excellent meals up front on UA
, attentive, classy service and a generally consistent product. I recently did EWR
since I needed to go directly between meetings in DEN
on the same day, and received an upgrade on the 757 SFO
(buddy of mine is a UA SFO
-based pilot, he helped me out
) and service levels have definitely declined. Looking at the overall transcon picture, CO
's F service is superior to UA
's two-class First, but it didn't always used to be that way.
