I was kidding, but I'd avoid both at all costs. I'll fly DL BE or AA BE, but I'll never fly UA BE.

I don't get Dan for not making a disclosure when he posts United domestic deals that it's BE and doesn't include anything

Why?
Well, DL they allow a carry on free, and I don't really care to choose my seat. I'm not currently an elite, and I don't care to to get milage with them, as I can barely find ways to spend what I already have. I may be mistaken, but I was under the impression that AA allows a carryon as well, in which case, you can copy and paste what I wrote above, for As as well.

AA and UA don't give a carry-on, but you still get it with a credit card.

I know you get your free bag, but a carry on too? I now will place AA in UAs boat, and I'll stick with DL when flying BE.

I still think Spirit and UA BE can go in the same line, especially since Spirit is generally cheaper than UA

Clueless!
Aside from NK operations being a joke (My brothers have had flight after flight to FL cancelled this week while UA took off)...

Snacks and drinks: Free on UA, paid on NK.
WiFi: Available on UA, doesn't exist on NK.
Streaming entertainment: Free on UA, doesn't exist on NK.
Pitch: 31+ on UA, 28 on NK
Seat recline: Available on UA, doesn't exist on NK.
Miles: Available on UA, expires in 3 months on NK
Checked bag fee: Waived with UA CC, not waived on NK.
Carry-on bag fee: Waived with UA CC, not waived on NK.
Interline partners: Available on UA for reaccomodation and checked baggage, not available on NK.

Shall I continue?
