What I like about UA is not its old fleet nor its business lounges, rather, it is Mileage Plus, UA's official frequent flyer program. Here, and if you want to take advantage of it to the fullest, is where you are able to redeem tickets on Singapore Airline ever much easier than on Krisflyer, SQ's own program!

I love United. I have been on 25 flights since the start of last year, and I have had 3 pretty serious delays, but they were pretty good about it. I love their very extensive network to Europe and Asia, other than Latin America, United has a very solid network, and with the UA/CO merger, it will be an amazing network.

You are stranded, at their mercy, wherever and whenever they want. All you can do is collectively sigh with your fellow companions and swear …
