United to American: We Sorta Have More Legroom. Sometimes.

Uncategorized March 21 2005 0 Comments

United Airlines is launching a new set of ads poking fun at American Airlines for eliminating their "More Room in Coach" campaign.  The ads suggest that flyers in United’s Economy Plus section have spacious legroom (they do) while American’s flyers have their knees up their noses (true enough).  However, and this is the ridiculous part, United’s regular economy section is no different than American’s. 

Says an AA spokesman: 
      "We are puzzled why United Airlines is spending an estimated $15 million
      to $20 million to advertise a product that nearly three out of four
      customers can’t fit in."

No, I don’t get it either.
