Anyone seen any further news? This initial selection of service is eclectic, to say the least.Jump to post

They initially branded it "Cross Country Comfort" and today they fly any plane with flat bed sets in first. All types. As a frequent p.s. traveler over the yeas I was asked to fill out a survey on the name and the services. I truthfully told them to me the name does not denote premium anyt...Jump to post
I see it as extremely impressive. That UA does so well in a market with a strong national carrier, with which they do not have any type of partnership sans maybe some interlining. The amount of capacity they manage to send is remarkable. I agree it is remarkable, UA will be increasing both PVG and ...Jump to post
I was told even though the satellite terminal is one single building, it's split into S1 and S2 and each is operated separetely. There is no airside transfer facility between the two. I know everyone is excited as this is long over due but the soft product can be shockingly bad. That sounds pretty ...Jump to post
Better rail connection to Tokyo would make it more attractive. When ever I arrive in NRT I take the $8 bus to Tokyo Station, instead of getting lost hopping 3 trains for an hour and a half for $15 or the Narita Express for $40. NRT could be very attractive for the entire northern Kanto region is th...Jump to post
Not much after this in the early 80s United ran a DC-10 IAD-BWI, last flight of the day. there were a lot of these odd short-hauls back then.Jump to post
I would be surprised if Taiwan could support three airlines, especially since Starlux doesn't seem to be attempting a LCC strategy. Totally agree. The initial press coverage gave you the impression they would fly on routes with a lot of paid premium cabin passengers. This list shows a lot of leisur...Jump to post
If HKG has it, why PVG don't deserve a UA lounge? 1. PVG has 2 daily SFO, 1 daily EWR(will soon be 2 daily from 2020), 1 daily LAX, 1 daily ORD; while HKG only has 3 daily departure(SFO, EWR, ORD) and 5 weekly GUM 2.PVG has more premium travellers for UA compare to what HKG does. One small point, H...Jump to post
DL is a solid carrier and has a good reputation in India. On what basis? When was the last time they were even in India? Please read the article - https://www.travelcodex.com/the-challenges-of-the-us-india-nonstop-market-its-time-for-facts-and-figures2/ There is some interesting info on the history...Jump to post
I feel like AA or CX could launch an extra 3x weekly flight. Premium traffic is heavy on this route. From what I've heard, there's a ton of non-revs on this route. There might not be enough traffic to warrant a 2x daily yet... given the increase in DFW-Asia with the upcoming HND slot. AA continues ...Jump to post
Not entirely accurate. UA simply ended most if not all flights from NRT to points beyond in Asia because it has NH a partner there and at HND. NH is a Star Alliance partner and UA and NH cooperate on numerous routes from NRT. AA has done something similar with JL. DL had wanted to form a partnershi...Jump to post

I think long term this is good for both airlines. HK is not such a large market that it could support 3-4 competing airlines. Hopefully CX will segment leisure and price sensitive routes better and stop trying to use CX crew and planes to compete with LCCs. Now we just need a better parent for HX...Jump to post
My wife and I spent 4 hours in the Polaris lounge at SFO on Thursday. UA has done a great job! The lounge is almost on par with the LH Senator lounges at MUC and FRA. I’ve heard great things about the new SFO Polaris Lounge... how does it compare to the old spacious F Lounge? Far bigger. The Polari...Jump to post
