After flying strictly UA for the past 15 years and finally becoming a million miler I think my loyalty may not be what it was. I am going to Vietnam and have two GPU's left for 2016, hunting and pecking for R space is almost impossible and when I find it I have to fly on the specific dates which does not need my needs. The cost of the W fare is significant. So, I start looking around and what do I find, EVA Air from Vancouver one stop, decent flight hours, and Premium Economy for CAD$1649.00. I check out the reviews of PE and decide that for the cost of flying UA, not being able to fly when I want to, getting the lie flat seat which IMO is not that great and the same meal over and over again on most International flights it is just not worth it any longer. I buy my ticket on EVA, choose my seat in the PE cabin and am happy that all the stress and anxiety is gone. It was an easy choice. Then I need to fly OW YVR LAX in the middle of summer. UA now has one non stop on an RJ and they want over $400.00 for the flight. I look a Seattle and they have two and the lowest fare is $235.00. I look at AS and their lowest fare for the flight I want is $135.00, again this is a no brainer so it's booked, seat assigned and no stress or anxiety. I also notice that in almost every instance of where I wish to go over the next year, when I use matrix to check all airfares, UA seems to be in most cases considerably more expensive. I have tons of miles to use and will use them for European flights in economy class, I won't waste miles on BC for a short European flight. So, I guess UA will see less of me, maybe it's time for a change. I have always felt pretty loyal to UA and have been treated pretty nice by them, but will probably fly them less frequently in the future.
