Yes I agree.[BR][BR][FONT face=Arial]After they annouced bankruptcy UAL, went out to let people know they were still in business, started the trend to stop the standby fees, and indicated they would increase service by bringing back the shuttle.[BR][BR]Of course that may be superficial news and the underlying details are not exactly that, but the public perception was that UAL was doing postive things.[BR][BR]In the case of U more of the publicity has been on the problems or [SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-bidi-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-ansi-language: EN-US; mso-fareast-language: EN-US; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA"][FONT color=#000000][FONT size=2]Ultimatums from Alabama.

I don't think US has done too much advertising, even during the 'good times' (compared to some of the other carriers).
The only way that US advertises is if the price is right - for example that truck commercial or via email to their FFs.

US advertises in the Boston newspapers quite regularly. Too bad they don't offer one of the main products people here want, nonstops south in the winter. And yes, I've heard that it's low yield, I guess that's why Delta and American offer lots of nonstops away from here..
