AA Flagship,UA P.s., DL BusinessElite On Transcons

Sat Nov 28, 2009 4:22 am

Now that Delta is operating internationally-configured 757s on JFK-LAX/SFO, who has the best product on this prestigious route?

I imagine that Delta has the best economy period since there is AVOD back there....Does the builit-in AVOD up front beat the portable DVD players? What about other aspects of the service?

And is Delta going to be able to maintain the 757s on the LAX & SFO runs when some of those birds have to start flying abroad for the Summer?

I guess it all comes down to personal opinion but on UA I would have legroom,wifi, and AC power at every seat. That's basically all I need so I would go with UA. Of course it's not exactly a fair comparison between Y+ and regular Y. I don't think any of the three carriers offer any real meal service in Y.

DL will have Wifi and PTVs/LiveTV. Not sure about power on these birds though.

For the front UA/AA have better F hands down. (because Delta doesn't have it at all)
As for C, I cant remember but i believe AA is running lie-flats. If that is the case i would say AA takes it.

AA does not have lie-flat C on the 762s.

Your missing two key players:

JetBlue
Virgin America

Both have award winning service and have top notch product imo.

None are in the top like AA and UA. (and DL to a point. We will see how this works as it is the 2nd time they have ran BizE on LAX/SFO-JFK....the 1st was with 763s)

I don't think that DL has Live TV on any of their BusinessElite 757s because they are all the ex-TWA birds used on international flights.

What do you mean "top"?

Product wise they (esp VX) certainly are in the top, and schedule wise when you throw in the flights B6 operates beyond LAX/SFO at secondary airports they have a rather strong schedule offering.
