Um...boyz and girls,
(1) It's the easiest thing in the world to do to BUY your own sleep mask,
ear plugs, special neck pillow (inflatable, or as I prefer, filled with
and thick, warm sox, and have them at the ready when you fly. For the
more than 50K miles a year I fly on United (no, I don't think they're
the greatest but they have me
by the frequent-flyer-miles-benefits hairs, so I hang in there with 'em)
I've found this is consistently the most convenient. Even in the premium
classes, amenities kits
can't compete with what I can pack. and by the way, that goes for the
entertainment headsets, too. Invet in a decent pair and you'll be happier
(1.5) ALL the major carriers off a meal choice. I'm mostly vegetarian--if
there is such a thing--and I'm regularly very pleased with UAL' Asian
veg meals. But
raving about airline food leaves one suspect as having endured too many
bumpy landings, so I'll soft-pedal here. The option exists for you to
have your say, though.
(2) I use my UAL credit card to rack up a credit-mile for every $US I
spend; THOSE credits turn into preferential treatment all along the route,
as I either upgrade
to Biz or First, OR get a bulkhead aisle seat in economy, and the whole
issue of comfort is resolved nicely.
Go thou and do likewise. And if you decide to accept a UAL Visa card.
let me be your sponsor so I can grab 5K miles UAL offers me for adding
you to their customer list.
Hope this is received as intended,
Kurismas Omedeto Hugs,
