Its the same as the other major airlines in terms of your flight experience. I will say their customer support is significantly worse than Deltas. As long as you don't need to talk to an agent though it's about the same. Oh and stroopwaffels for breakfast!

I've done plenty of 15 hour flights on United going to Asia for family. It's not the best, but it'll get you to where you're going.

I love the stroopwafel. But they suck as much as anyone else. Southwest is my first choice. Delta is a distant second. But living in Houston I only fly united because of the flight times being most convenient.

It's fine, it gets me from one place to the next so it works for me. Premier Gold here btw.

I only do short flights with them (BOS-EWR) and it’s fine, never had a problem with them

I’m doing a 15 hour flight with them and never flown with United so wondering

It sucks. Not sure about intl. Delta and Alaska are so much better

Be careful to get a seat with an outlet-- only the front half of the plane has them

I love them. Have status but my new engagement doesn’t have cheap routes :(

Are you flying business?

Stroopwafel 😛

Resume gap: My position will be abruptly end in December (was informed this week). However, I won't be interview ready in the next 2 weeks.

I'm also told hiring decisions at places like AWS & GCP take time and it might be a few months before an offer letter is received.

Looking for thoughts on if you would pursue an MBA given my age, YOE, current pay/track and post-MBA goals. 27M, 3 YOE all in consulting.

I don’t want to pivot into IB or PE, probably don’t want to work the hours required for MBB, but enjoy consulting and could see myself exiting to a tech company down the road.
