AS UA Or DL On Lax-pdx

Thu Jun 12, 2008 2:37 am

Hello all,

I will be flying from LAX to PDX on the 24th this month and was wondering which airline you recomend in premium or business cabins...

Thanks,

Considering DL doesn't fly a premium cabin on PDX-LAX (only ERJ-145s), I'd say that eliminates DL.

UA is flying only CRJ-700s on PDX-LAX, while AS has 4 daily 737s on the flight (2x 737-400, 1x 737-700, 1x 737-800). I personally would take the AS flight as I find the 737 to be a little more comfortable in First Class than a CRJ-700/900, but if you want a morning flight I'd take UA since there isn't an AS flight with First Class between 616a and 450p (there's the morning AS flight at 615a but the flights in between are on Horizon CRJ-700s).

Take AS, heres why....If your getting a first class seat then when you land at PDX you can head to the AS board room and have a drink and a snack, rest then go get your bags, instead of waiting with everyone else around the carosel.

As stated above AS is the best choice by far, better seat, service, aircraft and schedule
in order:
1.) AS
2.) UA
3.) DL

That's a good point - plus, AS has a Board Room at LAX, so the OP would be free to use that prior to leaving LAX.

Thanks all,

I really wanted to try AS but for schedulling reasons had to go with UA express in Explus. Will all let you know...
