A LOT of controversy regarding the first era of the SEA-NRT route. It started pre-Pan Am, in 1983 as you said, as part of the "Royal Pacific Service" launch, which included several cities in Asia, such as SEL, BKK, MNL, et. al. FWIW, United operated only three routes to Asia prior to the ...Jump to post
Apparently it wasn't profitable for UA and they didn't see hope for a turnaround, otherwise they wouldn't have ended service. That's not correct in the least. When we got the Pan AM Pacific division the DOT decided we didn't need the SEA NRT and SEA HKG routes anymore. And they wanted some other US...Jump to post
From CALTECH in the fleet/network thread: “From sources, the Gold Stripe and the Gold On The Globe is staying.

The white globe on the tail is too bland. I think there needs to be another color infused from United’s color palate to replace the gold in the globe. It looks too generic otherwise...Jump to post
My sense is that the globe will be more subtle. I think it will be positioned lower on the aircraft tail so that the eye sees past its horizon. This positioning of the globe is already reflected in seatback video screens and on forward cabin sidewalls of newly refurbished aircraft. As jph7291 pointe...Jump to post

Pretty sure that UA never flew DC-8s to SCK. That was part of the 737-200 milk runs.
UA did at times schedule DC-8s to FAT though.

LGA-DAB: Great to see DAB get it’s link to NYC restored following B6’s withdrawal.
STS-DFW: This could do well. It gives STS that east-bound link with great onward connections that Santa Rosa had been hoping to secure.

That is indeed not many, but the 11 crew seems like an overkill. According to regulations, it should be 1 stewardess on 50 passengers, right? So 2 pilots and 4 stewardesses = 6 crew. Chances are there may have been some deadheading crews onboard that are included in the crewmember count. Furthermor...Jump to post
I am not sure how I feel about the billboard titles. The ligature gets lost in the windows. I think the font may need to be thicker and the lettering slightly enlarged.

I thought it was an FAA requirement that all shades had to be up for taxi, takeoff and landing. Is that not correct? No, it’s not a FAR, but it should be. I flew for another airline prior to United and it was SOP at my previous carrier that window shades must be up for taxi, T/O, and landing. Unite...Jump to post

The point is, when you combine network size, scale, operational performance, financial performance, and customer satisfaction, Delta very often leads the pack when it comes to US Airlines, and that's what he's boasting about as it's translating to a revenue premium above Delta's peers. End of story...Jump to post
I know for many years up until at least 2014/15 they had a crew hub at LHR for flight attendants, they were American crew but based and lived in London, I used to see the crew on a regular basis at the crew parking lot at LHR. The UA cabin crews based at LHR are not exclusively American. I would sa...Jump to post
You can still rest in economy class. Even I can, and usually find it very hard to get rest in economy class. I was also able to work in economy class too.

I would think that Alaska would have an infection control kit onboard its A/C like other airlines. The kit contains all the tools needed to clean up vomit.

The flight in question, was a p.s. subfleet aircraft with 142 seats (J28W42Y70), meaning just 3 FAs. Do you mean just 3 F/A’s in United Business?

I think the HD 772s will remain on EWR-DUB/BCN/MAD routes during the busy summer travel season for the next few years. Right now UA has at least 3-4 77Es out of service in either HKG or XMN for schedule maintenance or Polaris installation. That combined with the fact that UA is filling up those HD ...Jump to post
I disagree, and I don't ride horses. This guy made a conscious decision to turn up for work not just over the aviation legal limit, but over the driving legal limit. Those tests would have been done some time after he turned up for work, when he would have been even further over the limit. He could...Jump to post
I am dismayed to read some of the comments on here. Addiction has nothing to do with one's character. It is a disease that certain people are predisposed to. The fact that this fellow showed up to pilot an aircraft shows us the utter powerlessness of the disease of alcoholism. This does not exonerat...Jump to post
Dear Jamake, There is a decent chance you have had me as a customer, probably no way to know for sure.
