How in the world does that have anything to do with the discussion at hand?
A lot of passengers will still choose a higher quality experience over a lower quality one, and you are right now on the side of the lower quality one.
I would be the first one to switch back to US airlines if their customer service matched Emirates (or Qatar, or Singapore, or Cathay, or even some Chinese carriers), but that seems to be a pipe dream.
You pretend to be a business passengers and you are not I think.
You are a ME airline pilot. I doubt you ever paid for a first class seat and you keep puting US legacies down,,,
Why? Don't you want to come and fly here?
BTW as an American you should buy American and fly on US Airlines, any of the US Airlines
Support the homeland and stop supporting foreign airlines, any foreign airlines
