I am pretty much stuck flying domestic on AA and Southwest. But Southwest doesn’t fly a lot of places I go. United uses those Small CRJs and I hate flying cross country on several CRJs.

>> Any recs as to whether to book front of back of FC cabin in United?

I would probably choose the last row in F. The carrier doesn't matter. The configuration of the cabin might. Typically, there is a bulkhead in front of the first row and another behind the last row of F. in the last row the bulkhead behind you would be a barrier to the people in coach and the other FC passengers would be breathing away from you (tho I don't really know what the airllow is like, I think it might be more "up" than forward).

I would take the advantage of boarding first that comes with a FC seat. The jetway would be relatively less "polluted" when you go first versus following everyone else. The cabin would be relatively fresh too. I would spend the time in my seat instead of in the jetway and aisle.

That is my thinking, anyway. Where you sit might matter but when you board probably doesn't matter much, if at all.

OMG - thank you!!! What great news! I've been trying to keep track with SW on my travel funds, since you need to know your confirmation number from the trip you modified or canceled, and it was a huge issue remembering where I wrote down the reminder! I checked it out, and it even has the one flight I canceled that expires this November! (I was using points, so it is only $11, but still . . .!).

This past week Delta removed two passengers from a flight (DTW-ATL) for refusing to wear their masks. Since masks are required for boarding, they must have taken them off after they left the gate. The FA's asked them to put their masks on and they refused. The plane returned to the gate and they were removed. They are now banned from flying Delta. The Delta bans are permanent, not just during covid.

Delta's mask policy means everyone has to comply. If you try to claim a medical reason, Delta has doctors online that are going to immediately screen you about that medical reason. It will be their decision, not some random online doc selling medical excuses.

My next flight will be in a little over two weeks on Delta. I don't expect much changes at the airports although the mask mandate for KY started July 10 and was for 30 days. There is some obscure reg about the governor only being able to institute emergency things for 30 days (the R's in our state legislature keep suing him every time he tries to protect us from covid). I haven't been in ATL since June, but won't have much time to look around as my layover is short.

When I looked at my Southwest, it said it expires 3/21, but that may have been extended. I will have to check again.
