* United will change the names of its three classes of service,
currently First, Connoisseur and Coach, to United First, United
Business and United Economy. The move aims to simplify brand names so
that they are more recognizable to the customer.


Damn! I wonder if that means that we'll lose the funky monthly quotes on
cusine connoisseurship from Sara Fields, VP, Inflight Services, inside
all those menus in all those languages...


PS. There will also be Star Alliance decals on every plane of every
carrier by July. Singapore is the next likely partner, which is an
interesting risk, since it *does* potentially compete with United a lot
