Yeah, as if UA will miss them on their flights. It is amazing how those guys over at flyertalk believe they are the center of the world and a godsend to the airlines.
To be fair, UA
actually admitted that they were losing a lot of corporate customers to other carriers which was part of why UA
was (and still is) under performing their competition in terms of profit. More recently, UA
has been giving away status upgrades and frequent flyer miles trying to lure people back.
cheerleaders on this board didn't believe it and kept insisting that no one was leaving and that UA
's product was fine.
Certainly, having a nonstop will given UA
an advantage in this market. But UA
's product is going to prevent them from reaching their full potential...as we've seen repeatedly from UA
over the past five years.
