    I have to send this link to my wife. She's not a FTer or MPer, just a regular flyer, and after seeing the original video a few times over the last year (and without any prompting or comments from me) she started to call him Jeff Smarmy.

    (personally, I don't have anything against Jeff, but I found her reaction interesting)

    Excellent. I don't think it's all as bad as the video suggests, but things are not quite as good as the SMI/J would claim, either.

    Cheap shot by someone who's never run a business and knows nothing about the realities of running an airline. Aside from the boarding order fiasco, what bad things have happened? E+ is being extended to the CO fleet, CR1s are being extended to Plats, UDU remains, free booze and wifi for everyone in old RCCs... Okay, the Fritos are gone from the Presidents Clubs. But what real negatives have we seen?!

    I have it on good authority from the United High Command that those responsible for the video drivel mocking and insulting the COurageous Leader shall soon suffer punishments of a most severe nature.

    Would be funny to start an FT/MP version of that.

    I'm leaving United
    I'm going to return after I discover the grass isn't always greener elsewhere.

    A new low
    It's a cut I don't like, but I still want to fly upgraded F on a $200 transcon.

    Where are the Skykits?
    The FA looked at me funny, I am entitled to compensation

    E+ on the PMCO fleet was a big deal for me, and they came through on it. And you didn't mention the end to Starnet blocking, which was also in my top three issues. Nothing's perfect but I think they're doing a fine job. Sometimes I read the comments and think of the line from Red vs Blue: "You know, you could bitch about anything."

    From two free bags to one and no E+ at booking for Silvers.

    Whether that's the product of the merger or just trying to wring more $ out of MileagePlus is unknown.

    Would have laughed had it been particularly funny.

    Personal attacks, unsubstantiated statements, and general whinging done with less sophistication than the average junior high kid could muster with photoshop.

    I'm still waiting for the sky to fall. Apparently it's been falling for more than a year now, but I haven't noticed it getting substantially closer to my head.

    In the meantime, I look forward to enjoying power and AVOD in E+ on coach trips to Europe and (hopefully) to C service and catering being brought up the CO business-first standard for those trips where I'm fortunate enough to fly in business.

    I thought it was pretty humorous too. I am not in the camp of people that thinks everything is worse now. In fact, I am ok with the merger, with the notable exception of reduction of RDMs to Golds, but this made me chuckle.

    I thought it was kind of weak, but fairly inoffensive.

    I did laugh fairly heartily at the actual new welcome aboard video that I saw yesterday on board. Someday needs to oil the CEO!
