Coming up on 90 days into my 1k to EXP match/challenge, some here may be interested in hearing the perspective of those of us who have made the jump, so I thought I would go ahead and kick off a formal place to do it. Out of 20 total flights, two have been on RJs. E145s ORD-SUX-ORD which UA doesn't serve, and it save me a fortune compared to flying into FSD. It was also much more convenient to my ultimate location (Yankton, SD). I have 6 more flights booked this week, and that will wrap it up, but I hit the 25,000 points today. That should post tomorrow. Complete disclosure, I'm booking mostly premium cabin, but not all. On those where I have not (SJO-MIA-MCO, DFW-SMF, LAX-DFW, DFW-ABQ-DFW), I am 100% on CPUs at the 100 hour mark. Most aircraft have been 737-800s and MD-8Xs, with a couple of 757s and 321s, and one 763 in the mix. I have my first CR200 tomorrow from SMF-LAX, and I don't think any airline can put enough lipstick on that pig, but it's one out of 26. Overall, a huge improvement. The aircraft you'd expect to be old, are, but I just remind myself that they aren't RJs, and I'm getting real food. I'll take any of the old seats over any of UAs new slimlines. The older configs feel more spacious, too, so theres another trade off. Plus they have wifi, and it's reasonable by subscription. I'll have to give UA a slight advantage on customer facing customer service on the ground, and AA gets it in the air, but there are exceptions on both. One entire flight crew was so bad that I wrote in about it just so they would know, and I got a supervisor to help me out of a jam that AA created this morning when a TA couldn't have possibly been more apathetic and just wouldn't even try to help me. The supervisor saw that they had caused my problem and fixed it in 5 minutes, and was very professional about it all. The food on AA is better. I wouldn't stop at a restaurant that serves it, but it's still better than UA. Closer to what I am accustomed to on Copa, and I like being able to reserve it 30 days ahead. I still miss what UA was, but since that's not what it is, I'm very pleased with my decision. AA would serve itself well to come up with an answer to the 1kvoice email contact. More things will surely cross my mind, but I'm hoping others will share their experience here for anyone considering accepting the match. I got this kind of info here and TOBB, but not in such a concise format.
