    Anyone flown the UA957 in F from GVA-EWR? I was wondering if it's worth the extra 12500 miles to fly F instead of C in LX 52 (ZRH-BOS).

    I wouldn't.

    What's your ultimate destination?

    can't imagine UA F is significantly better than LX C.

    i would go with LX. daytime flight where most don't plan on sleeping. also the F ground service at GVA and EWR (very little Global First) leaves a lot to be desired.

    Ultimate destination is EWR so I would have a layover in BOS then UA to EWR.

    Well, there is something to be said for getting the direct flight to your destination. Not sure it is worth the points in this case, but there is some value there. Otherwise I'd pass.
