Seeing various threads come up describing some of the changes at UA/CO reminded me how much we all get acclimated to the product of whatever airline we normally fly - somewhat numb to much of the good and the bad. When I do end up on other carriers, I tend to notice a lot of things tht I never pay attention to on DL and maybe take for granted, beyond the obvious of having status on DL and not on others. The WN experience is mostly horrid. Just don't get the appeal. Did do a nice job of rolling our beverage service on a short hop, though. Back to front boarding is not the way to go, CO. Bad move standardizing there. Niceties like snacks in coach, blankets and pillows in first are no longer bare minimum standards to be expected Leather seats are nice. For all the flak Delta gets over Skymiles, I appreciate the domestic product, at least in Y (can't really compare F). How much this is me recognizing what's missing when I fly elsewhere vs. what advantages are there to be discovered I'm not sure. What do you notice/miss when "switching it up"? What are the little touches that differentiate your primary carrier?
