+1 to Delta. With the typical service on a United flight plus with how cramped the planes have gotten, you get what you attract. Leggings are a part of the norm now. If they want people to dress up in suits, perhaps increase the pitch and go to wider seats. any time I travel, unless my upgrades cle...Jump to post
Dark clouds here around Love, but I'm seeing LUV birds rocketing into the sky. Yah...every time there's a lightning bolt within 500 miles of DFW, AA seems to freak out and start their irrops.

Thank you to anyone who can point us to the relevant part of UAL's dress code policy. See Post #29 Nobody is disputing that the rule exists. the major problem is with the way UA handled it, all the way from the gate agent to UA's public relations department. A major fail.

I remember reading somewhere that WN did get ETOPS certification on some of their 737’s which they use for flights over the Gulf of Mexico between south Florida and DAL. Previously their flights had to follow the coast line to and from DAL but now with ETOPS they can fly directly across the gulf sa...Jump to post
This happened to me a few months ago on United...I, along with six others were revenue paxs onnecting in Chicago. The plane was there, but not an employee in sight.

It's nice, but the Alaskan flair is completely gone. No more tapestry design on the bulkheads.

DCA-DEN has been a 757-300 for a long time now. USAirways also used to use 752s DCA-PHX. Full planes as I remember. The 752 was standard fare from UA on most, if not all DEN-LGA/BOS/DCA up until the big drawdown of the PMUA 752s. I remember reading on here that UA now prioritizes putting 753s on SF...Jump to post
They are placeholder aircraft. Domestically, the company does not allow -900s to be flown into DCA/LGA/SNA, citing runway performance limitations. If we did, we'd have to block seats to the point where an -800 actually results in more capacity. This is changing, the 900er will indeed begin operatio...Jump to post

It seems like ATL is going back on their word which is a big deal in new service deals. B6 wanted an E or F gate as a prerequisite and ATL said sure. Now three weeks before service starts they suddenly cannot accommodate them. Delta has already made clear the extent they will go to block a competit...Jump to post

As a UA 1k of 4 years and a previous EXP on AA for over a decade, let me tell you that this exec migration from AA to UA is of concern to me.

This is completely misleading. They haven't announced their fleet plans yet.
