    Very interesting analysis. Being based at SFO, UA has always been my go-to airline of choice for geographic reasons, but since they introduced E+, that loyalty has been cemented and I have made sure to retain elite status (nowadays 1K, all from personal travel). It would be a big loss if the new United abandoned that offering. I don’t expect to be upgraded to F every time I fly (though I have had good luck with SWUs and now UDUs because in almost never book at the last minute), but the guarantee of at least a decent E+ seat makes sure I stick with UA. I don’t think I’d even consider going IAH-AKL in E- – the memories of 16 hrs or so flying ATL-CPT in South African’s 747 in standard E are still just to vivid (you can tell from the route this was quite a while ago) I think I’d rather fly in many hops via Micronesia than that long non-stop in E- 🙂
