Yesterday, United operated a special preview flight on its 777-300ER , which enters passenger service this Thursday . TPG and I had a chance to fly on this charter (along with 60 or so employees and guests) from Chicago to San Francisco, giving us four hours to experience the full long-haul Polaris service (including amenities like mid-flight snacks and pajamas) , chat with United execs and explore the plane. In This Post TPG policy is to cover all costs related to travel — while we paid for our flights to Chicago and from San Francisco, unfortunately it wasn't possible to book a revenue fare (or award ticket) on the charter. So, since we couldn't pay for the flight, we'll be giving away two round-trip award tickets in United Polaris to any destination with Saver availabilitystay tuned for more details about that incredible giveaway! Polaris Lounge I'm going to keep this section short, given that we've already reviewed both the Polaris Lounge and United's new sit-down dining service (which unfortunately wasn't available during yesterday's event).

Just like the rest of us, Oscar likes to check out the lavseconomy-class restrooms are definitely compact. There are some slightly larger lavatories to choose from, including this one at the back of the rear economy cabin. Gate and Boarding After our early aircraft visit and some remarks back in the Polaris Lounge , it was time for a ribbon cutting ceremony with United execs and crew. Then, the CEO himself announced that the plane was ready to board. He then proceeded to scan each and every boarding pass — with just over 60 passengers on the flight, it didn't take very long to get everyone through. Bottom Line From the CEO down to the ground support staff, everyone was very excited about United's new plane. Tune in tomorrow for a full report from the preview flight, followed by detailed cabin tours (and seat recommendations). For now, it's time to fly right on back to NYC. Will I see you on United's EWR-SFO inaugural flight this Thursday?

The decision by President Trump to meet with airline executives this week probably put them on cloud 9. Alone with the president, unrestrained in their ability to complain about so-called competition, the airline execs likely provided a laundry list of complaints and wish-lists of things they dreamed of. Unfortunately, the president met with only one segment of the industry-- and that could spell doom for general aviation. Let's remember, general aviation (defined as all aviation that is not airlines or military) contributed $219 billion dollars to the U.S. economy and more than a million jobs last year. (source: GAMA) At the top of the list, no doubt, is the airlines favorite pet project: the privatization of air traffic control. Some republicans in Congress have been pushing to spin off ATC from the FAA into a non-profit, private corporation.
