That is in addition to the A330-330 P2F MSN231 D-AAEC at EAT one more A330-300P2F is on the way, MSN346 and will become D-AAED. My understanding of the nose gear bump on the purprose-build 330 freighters is that a little extra height was needed to make a flat load floor. For the A330 P2F aircraft (...Jump to post

SFO, as United's Pacific gateway, has some of the highest demand long-haul routes in the network (so gets the 77W) and has some of the longest stage lengths in the network (so gets the 788 and 789 where that aircraft's efficiency makes a difference). LAX has a similar thing going on – really long st...Jump to post

VC10er wrote:Is it the same with other airlines with E with added legroom sections?
United will still sell seats at the regular Economy fare (no E+ buy up), even if the regular economy section (or seat count) is sold out? All economy, even Economy Plus, is a regular economy fare. Economy Plus is an ancillary product added on top of an economy fare – there is no such thing as an Ec...Jump to post
UA is sold out on regular economy very often and to fly them you must buy up to at least E+. This is not true. If there are no regular economy seats available but still Economy Plus seats available, United will sell the regular economy seat and you'll be unassigned a regular economy seat at checkin...Jump to post

Yes they do ... it’s a bit of a long layover on the Mia-iAd-tlv portion, however.
Well the number of weekly flights for star alliance alone between the US and tlv is 34... without factoring in LY's operations. That's a ton of flights! It seems like tlv is a small market to me; what is the average load factor on those flights? This is anecdotal but my seasoned veteran colleagues,...Jump to post
Double edge sword. More availability means less revenue, so risk of loss of service. So now I have to fly through China, Thailand, and Australia to get to NZ, because they didn't have enough pax to keep it year round. Why on earth would you go to all those countries, when you can fly directly to NZ...Jump to post
Neither their website nor inflight magazine imply anything to ingest is included in your fare.

U.S. airlines can operate freighters if they want to. They just don't want to. There's no money in dedicated freighters in the U.S. market – there's enough belly cargo space on existing passenger aircraft to meet the demand of the cargo market.Jump to post
Who is gonna order the C919 outside of China?

30-40 aircraft is enough of a subfleet to be worthwhile but aren't all of AirBerlin's 320s CFM powered? United's seemed to be content to stick with IAE birds when they've gone shopping for Airbus additions. I guess at the right price they would see benefit in a sub fleet of CFM powered jets. Much l...Jump to post

Nobody in Czechia asked for my two cents but the Travel Service sounds like an anonymous, white label airline and their livery is rather clip art. Czech Airlines sounds like something real and a little more up-market (which may not be the combined carrier's goal) and their visual identity is a bit m...Jump to post

I'm confused by ATL as higher than ORD in global but ORD higher than ATL in North America.
