Hi there, nice report as always. Seems like the new UA is delivering a pretty solid product domestic, food looked quite delicious. Although not a big fan of that snackbox, looks like something they could've sold or served in Economy, doesn't do good for a 2hr flight in First I'd say.
Really nice of you to feature that little extra part on New Orleans, place looked crazy! Seemed to get pretty wild, but nice that you managed to get back in one piece. The hotel suite looked nice, but very "80s cliché American". Was the hotel recently built, or supposedly not? Any more luck with that woman blocking your view? (just joking)

The Ritz-Carlton New Orleans is an absolute gem, and was upgraded to one of their largest suites (it was larger than an Executive Suite at the Four Seasons Miami), for... the sum of $140 a night- the only place I have 'status' is The Ritz-Carlton, and I guess it paid off.

I love your videos- really great entertainment, you take us right there with you.

Great video TR. I like the fact that, although you travel a lot, you have not become jaded by the experience. You really seem to appreciate the perks that come with your travels. Keep up the good work

Stfflyer- I stay in The Ritz-Carlton often, but have only spent a grand total of 3 nights in their New Orleans property. Thank you about your comments in regards to being prospective, but I immeaditly recognized the bathroom marble, The Ritz-Carlton mouth wash (which is found in every Ritz), and the unmistakable Ritz theme song they play every time you enter one of their rooms, so its not really about being prospective as much as looking for clues. I loved that hotel, the Orleans property- I don't know why, but it felt very American, very Southern and very Ritzy. You also travel a lot, and when you said it was a 'very nice' hotel, then it must have been special- theres about 3 hotels in New Orleans that probably qualify as uber luxurious, and The Ritz, in my honest opinion, tops them all.
That property has opened within the last decade, so not very old at all.

Another great video, sffyler123!
We're flying F from MSP-ORD-IAH-PVR in September all in United F for my honeymoon - so your flight gave good insight into what we will likely expect. Looking forward to it!
Thanks for sharing - I don't understand why United CRJ-700 FC service does not include much more than a snack box and a bigger seat, where American Eagle and DL now provide full meals ... If some airlines can do it, United should follow suit.

Great trip report and New Orleans is always a great time...
Small correction however..in the video you wrote about the sounds of the CFM engines buzzing...UA has IAE engines on the A320's.

Great video report, did not know New Orleans was so lively!
I'm quite impressed with the large meal you got on your outbound leg!
