Hi - Flying EWR-TLV with UA in Business Polaris in a couple of days. Anyone have experience with bringing 2 carry-ons? I am only going for a few days, but would need to bring 2 carry-ons to avoid checking luggage. Are they more flexible with business class with regards to carry-ons or will they make us check in our second bags. Thanks

If no personal item they may be more lax on the size.
I brought a large backpack and proper carry on.

My sister flew first class on AA from LAX to IND last week on a nonstop flight, no food or drinks were offered to first class passengers on a close to 5 hour flight, I have not flown domestic first for a while, so they do not serve meals nor drinks?
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

Flying on the red eye or the morning flight?

Meals are not served on late night flights.

3 years ago I flew Y on UA with another passenger flying J. I brought along a Sefer Torah in a small Aron Kodesh (the size of a full size carry on) besides my carry on. They started asking questions so I showed the passenger in J and said it's his and they let it through.

NYC TLV, What J Product to choose?

 TK J JFK IST TLV  Amex > Aeroplan 82K, Never been to the TK IST lounge

or

QR J Qsuites JFK DOH AMM TLV   AA70K

Of-course should UA J open up Polaris EWR TLV  that would be the first option!

its pretty easy to figure out. If you want the better product go for q suites. If you want a normal flight that's not over 24 hours go with TK

QSuites is far better.

Booked IB J MAD-TLV This is what seatguru claims the product is as well as CS said it's a 332.
I'm unable to choose seats online so I can't see for myself, but the CSR said that the seats are C1, A2 etc... like the 333 is configured. CSR was extremely confused whether it is a lie flat or not.
Any way to double check this?
