Dan, I'm with Elya on this. I think you are a easier on them recently. Albeit this story is not a big deal.

I was the only blogger that took the time to investigate and criticize the official report on 3411.
And yes, that was 4 months after I got GS  ::)

And I told people to avoid the 77W in coach. UA is completely non-competitive with that flight in the back.

This is a complete non-story. If we're going to take every dumb thing that happens when flying it can make front page news until the end of time.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

If I were UA I'd gift you lifetime GS for your diligent and valiant work

Customer probably forged the entire video. United is clean. If you question this you obviously didn't read the report and I doubt you even know the UPS method. so I don't really care what you have to say.

Although things like this happen often, but only only now does it make the headlines very soon.

"A few months later, Bethune inflamed even more passions when he described United as "HIV-positive" at an industry confab."

Oza admits he had alcohol in his system from the night before and hadnít slept much. But possible intoxication wasnít why the United agent canceled his reservation.

I agree. That is why I said that it is not a big deal.

Thanks for reporting on that but that was kind of obvious.

I didn't suggest that you joined the UA cheering squad. I do suspect that you are still calling things how you see it. So if something is awry you may blog about it. However,I think you are now less likely to do so with United than in the past.

IMO you would be more inclined to criticize DL and AA over you United; as well as quicker. But that is my opinion.

Enjoy your GS. You earned it!

Are you always in the habit of making random and baseless assumptions about people and their future behavior? How can you say "IMO you'll be easier on UA in the future"? You realize how ludicrous that's sounds?

Totally agree. I consider myself unbiased and I think Dan's commentary is totally fair.
