    Looks more and more like Wall Street has outsmarted itself. The hubris was incredible. Screw the leisure traveller. What choice would customers have once a tiny cabal was given the keys to the nations skyways? Well less than 2 months ago, It was big news spoonfed to a compliant media that the UAL CEO was buying $1 M worth of stock @ $50. That stock today: $41 and change.
    Didn't go to Wharton myself, but gratuitously going to war with and disparaging your customers is a high risk strategy, no? A lot of people can think of better ways to spend their money other than hassilistic, rewardless, air travel, a worse than ever ordeal.

    I think you are overly emotionally invested here.

    How about those United satisfaction ratings? A whopping 3 out of 10-inflated no doubt by the fact less than zero is not an option. Are these the improved numbers UAL was touting? What led to the giant increase? The new coffee?
    A lot of folks are just now realizing the worthlessness of MP. And yet the cartel continues under regulators eyes to hawk miles.
    Incidentally, the taxpayers are being sponged off big time by this cartel so in that sense even if we no longer do biz with them we are all stakeholders.

    3/10 satisfaction is higher than the average given by prisoners of state maximum security penal institutions. However, it is lower than what residents rate their homeless shelters, on average.
    Weren't mergers great? Nice job Congress/Administration.
    This would probably be a failed biz if our leaders hadn't strangled competition.
