The Race to Build a Better Business Class

Interesting read. As a non-rev, I loved the ability to select flights based on comfort since price wasn't a concern. On SDF-DEN for example, I'd rather risk it at the bottom of the standby list on Frontier and end up with a regular sized middle seat and Direct TV then use my much higher priority on United and end up in a 50-seat RJ for 3 hours. On long haul flights, if it looked like I would get anything less than biz class on United, I'd rather buy a ZED on a non-US carrier and get some real service and entertainment in coach.
