Quoting ua900 (Reply 8):3. Invest in First Class and GS As always, a.net is clueless. A.net seriously wants UA to lose hundreds of millions of dollars.
I appreciate future LAX
all flatbed service since I'll have a guarantee soon that they'll have flatbeds outside of the 2 runs per day they currently have. I wish other city pairs had that product, especially hub to hub routes. You don't seem to appreciate paying premium customers who fly between say Europe and the West Coast and don't want to transfer to/from a 738/9 with recliners in EWR
. You probably also think that the 752 TATL was "too nice". Good for you, but they are have moved mine to a 763 and are bringing back domestic 772 hub to hub flying.
There's an opportunity to improve the product in domestic F, whether you like it or not. And how about international, what's your thought around why UA
has bothered to put up GS
check in at EWR
recently without having a GF
lounge there and just sends GF
to the overcrowded UA
club at C120. That's ok since they're all freeloaders and upgraders, right?
And that mentality extended to the F cabin under Jeff and that's a primary reason you have so many people who aren't willing to pay. Try LH
some time. Personal escort from the counter to the F club, very separate line (forget about pre-check being exclusive), designated passport checkpoint and most importantly people at your beckon call at *every* turn you make both on the ground and in the air and back on the ground again.
If you want to be immortal for a day that's about as close as you can get on this planet. Worlds away from UA GF
, but it doesn't have to be.

I agree #1 and 2 are major priorities. GS is getting a lot of preferential treatment already, including things like Benz tarmac transfer similar to what HON Circle gets at FRA/MUC (I rode it once in MUC during torrential rain it was awesome). GF isn't coming back even with the new management unless the numbers can really prove it.
Here are some gaps in my view that UA
has a brand new GS
check in and transfers but no GF
lounge. Ironic, where would they transfer to? BOM
-Domestic F to Bumpkinville? It's not like there's a FCL or FCT where they can board that S550.
2. Remaining GF
lounges need a serious overhaul
3. Assign a personal assistant to each GF
4. Add a designated Passport checkpoint
5. Add a designated security lane
6. Customer service onboard int'l F is basically on par with BF
. Customers get some extra space and isle access, but little else.

Regarding #4, 739 itself isn't the problem, it's what hard product they install inside it. I don't need AVOD but WiFi, streaming, plus DirecTV would be sufficient.
As for #5, isn't UA already flying the most intra-region-1 flat beds out of all the carriers ? Transcon, Hawaii, and soon, some hub-to-hub.
The F recliners in region 1 need to go and IFE needs to be unified. Transcon, Hawaii and hub-to-hub flatbeds outside of p.s. are a crap shot. Outside of p.s. you'll be limited to 1-2 frequencies per day. Good luck trying to build a schedule around it.
offers fewer flat beds in region 1 and manages to *sell* more F seats (sell not fill), then UA
definitely has an opportunity ahead of them.
