United Needs New Paint

This Airbus would be a great candidate for new paint. I would also enjoy a new paint scheme too.

Bad Photoshop Avis

This aircraft must be massive or two photos were poorly merged.

Happy Travels

United Airlines flies 2 of the 5 longest routes with IAH-SYD and LAX-SIN. They both use the 787-9 Dreamliner and last over 17 hours. I flew DFW-SYD and it was a long trip even in business class.
17 Hours is a Long Time in Coach or Business Class

Emirates Buys 20 More A380s

Emirates must have got a heck of a deal from Airbus to keep the A380 program alive for a few more years. They ordered 20 A380s with options for 16 more.
Good Deal When You Are the Best Customer

United A320 First Class

The breakfast calzone was really good. All the Baileys onboard was consumed before landing too (I had help). Add some great views and it was a wonderful flight.

Virgin American First Class

Virgin American first class was only $70 more than flying United economy, so I booked a flight from Denver to SFO. It was wonderful. Hands down the best in flight meal I've had on a domestic flight. The seats were super comfortable and powered. The crew was nice and the flight was fun.

Lifetime Platinum with SPG

11 years after my first SPG stay, I am now lifetime Platinum status. It's very relaxing to have the status I want without it resetting January 1st. I'm excited to get lifetime Gold on United Airlines this year too. Travel should be relaxing and this gets me there.

Nice Landing Into Denver

I had a delightful landing into Denver with great views of the Rockies and spotted USA in a farm field.
