It’s been a busy week for United, to say the least — and we’ve been there to experience it all, from the media-only preview flight on Monday to today’s inaugural flight between Newark (EWR) and San Francisco (SFO). Both TPG himself and Editor-in-Chief Zach Honig spent some time on the carrier’s brand-new Boeing 777-300ER and they believe the new Polaris product represents a huge step in the right direction for the airline.

It’s important to note that at TPG we always pay for our own flights and hotel accommodations when we review them. In special circumstances, like the Polaris media preview flight on Monday, we cover a product or service that is only viewable by invitation from the airline (in this case we beat CNN on the plane). So we couldn’t have bought tickets to that flight even if we’d wanted to. One thing we can do now, however, is send one lucky reader to any destination that United flies in the Polaris cabin (remember that only a limited number of routes will have the new seats immediately) with two, one-way Saver-level United award tickets with a maximum value of 80,000 MileagePlus miles each way, per person.

Enter for your chance to fly with a companion in the Polaris cabin to any destination United flies to. (That’s United CEO Oscar Munoz with TPG.)

How to enter to win: Go to our Facebook post and tag your favorite travel buddy in the comments with where you want to go. You have until 11:59pm ET tonight (February 17). We’ll pick a random entry and notify the winner tomorrow (February 18). Full rules here.

Good luck with this Polaris giveaway, and happy travels!
