No pillows in coach.....
Maybe someday I'll get to travel in intl J or F ...
Don't think I'd choose the Mahi Mahi....I do like the Sundaes though......
I hope you do!
Travel is about the destination far more than the tube ride IMO, blasphemy on MP no doubt but it is how I feel.
Excommunication proceedings to begin immediately. Just need to watch the Holy Grail to re learn the procedures....whether you float or sink, it wont matter.
Its not as hard as you think. Picking a good frequent flyer program, learning to work within the program and taking advantage of opportunities as they arise will put you in J or F. Most people "walking" around MP don't pay the J or F fare for international or even domestic travel, its about earning your way into the cabin. Help us, help you.....
save the trouble, just blow me up with the holy hand grenade
I agree - that's why I've always traveled in Y from the U.S. - including very long flights like MEL, BOM, and YEV. But I'm tempted to just once exchange miles for a F trip.
oh sure, it is worth it to give it a run and man is it great while you are in the J/F product. I no longer have any real substantial business travel so I hold my miles a little closer than I used to (+ have Mrs Sweet Willie to burn miles on). So go ahead and burn it to experience it, you may become addicted like many here or you may feel like I did, 'wow, I could do X more trips if I didn't burn for J/F'
There is also the fact that I am vegetarian (ovo-lacto), so I suspect that a lot of the best parts of F might be wasted on me.
Alcohol is derived from vegetables, so no, nothing would be wasted except maybe the pax though
Save up those miles and you might even be able to do it for free!
Stick around and read up and you will. I never thought I'd travel the way I am right now. Turkish First Class, Swiss First Class, Lufthansa's new A380 and old First Class, and multiple business class trips...all this year alone.
"They want their luggage. They want to arrive on time. They want the airplane to be clean," says Andrew Nocella, US Airways senior vice president of marketing. "Most importantly, they want a low fare."
This sums up USAir's strategy.
I wonder why they are wasting money on already outdated international J seats...
You mean the same ones CX is installing in their longhaul jets as J seating? After ripping out ones that are only a few years old?
I didn't think they were the same. Are they?
The images I saw of US's new seats looked unimpressive.
What model is it?
Is this what you're looking at?
This is funny....same article - the guy just changes the title to make it sound more Pro-First Class.
Sicma Aero "Cirrus". And yes, they ARE the same model (though obviously differently appointed).
