I'm pressed for time, so here's a quick recap.
Thank goodness for buddypasses. Fee was around $40. Cheap.
Flt 2041 sked dep at 2PM... 49 empty seats in Y. Plenty of seats. Flight was clear and easy. Descent into LAX was scenic as per usual.
Next day... flt 2058 sked dep 5:30p... 23 open seats in Y. Clear and easy flight again. Back home now... ahhh.
I know there aren't many details, I'll add them in later.
The one thing I have to say, is that United Shuttle's reliabilty has improved.
U N I T E D S H U T T L E. Take it easy.
