  1. Great piece on Oscar Munoz. Since he took over, the morale, the performance and the commitment United has made to its business customers has been unbelievably better. He has made an incredible difference, which has been seen on almost every United flight I’ve been on since Commander Jeff left.

  2. Me Munoz is an easy guy to root for. It’s the quintessential American success story. May his good health continue.

    I heard the doctors tried some sort of heart procedure on smisek. They failed because they couldn’t find it.

  3. I came across that article on Oscar Munoz last weekend, while preparing to fly United SF-ICN. Very insightful.

    I know you’ve said the podcasts are over, but it’d be great if your sit down with Oscar made its way to a podcast.

    1. USBT – Podcasts aren’t over! I’m just going back to regular Tuesday posts. I’m still trying to figure out how the podcast fits in.

  4. nice article about Oscar Munez/.. a local guy from jax(where we live and have children his kids age!!!) good to see he is doing so well!!dOTTI
