UA or AC to SYD

Thu Jul 07, 2016 12:20 am

I am going to be traveling to SYD in a few months and can take AC through or UA through SFO for about the same price and I I'll be traveling in C. I will also be traveling after UA introduces their Polaris product so I plan on flying them one way, but for the return any recommendations? From what I can see UA and AC Business soft product are very similar and that is before Polaris.

Fly each of them one-way and do trip reports on both -- You can give us the rundown and comparisons between the two :D

i think they are alike and im not sure which one is better, but i really love YVR airport, better than foggy SFO.
for most people the sky is the limit. for those who love aviation, the sky is home...

There was an article in an Australian business travellers blog/website recently that compared UA and QF to SFO. It gave a slight edge to UA due to the B789.

Ah, here is the article, took me a while to find it. ... tle-gpr4dm

I would have picked AC because I think they offer a better service (both hard and soft products), but go ahead and try Polaris, then report!

Polaris wont be around for a while. They'll first get them with the arrival of their 77Ws in December 2016, and I do not think they'll be flying to SYD (immediately - at least).
