Re: America Trans Air question

I flew ATA regularly early in my career, back in 2004. I was working in Los Angeles while living in Tampa. I’d fly ATA on the weeks that I had to foot the bill to fly home, roundtrip LAX-PIE-LAX could be had for about $150. The interior was very southwest like. I don’t recall the service at all, the...

Re: Future Of First Class? (and who would pay for it?)

I’m far less concerned with domestic F/J. For me, I end up in those seats while connecting onwards to Asia. For flights to Asia in F/J, the hard product is far more important than the catering. Sure, I’d like a nice meal while traveling for 20+ hours, but it’s not that important. Domestic F/J, doesn...

No one wants to fly that decrepit 767300 for near ten hours hence bookings are light as people choose VS from MCO or connect thru ATL/DTW/JFK

Re: Why can’t UAL close the revenue/ profit gap with DAL ?

You can argue till the cows come home. The reality is in the numbers. If those 60 were there now and maybe a couple of years ago, maybe the OP wouldnt be asking this question. The rest of the product is the rest of the fleet missing Polaris still. But since he/she is, maybe the homer talk isn't ans...

Re: Why can’t UAL close the revenue/ profit gap with DAL ?

Their intl J is a decade behind AA and DL. I'm not referring to Polaris that's on 20 planes - I'm talking about the rest of their product. 47, to be exact, with 60 to follow in 2019... and as for the rest of the product, like the Polaris Lounge? You can argue till the cows come home. The reality is...

Re: UA launches LAX-SIN

18 hours in any economy seat sucks. At that point how good the service/food/etc is on one airline versus another is irrelevant as most of the trip you are just sitting bored at your seat. Not necessarily. The problem is that UA doesn't have additional services to compensate for the long flight time...
