There will be some controversy with this move. Ali refused to serve his country, that will not sit well with veterans. Being a great boxer will not make up for that. On the other side of this, won't the Standiford family be upset by this? I don’t see that as a issue anymore, most of the folks you m...Jump to post
N181AN and N182AN are also in the desert and have RR engines, and they're newer (1999 build) than N26123. Maybe AA would be willing to offload one for the right price? Good Question, IDK but historically UA hasn't been about acquiring second hand 757s. They got 3 ex-HA 763 recently, and even that w...Jump to post
I think the A321XLR makes a ton of sense for UA to replace their 757s on Trans-Atlantic, Deep South America, Denver-Hawaii and Trans-cons.
Keep the 737-10 for domestic growth and or replace their oldest A320s which will hit 30 years of age in 2023.

Looking at the numbers it seems that CLE is doing a great job of recovering traffic Lost when they lost the CO/ UA hub. I think CLE can catch up to their peak 2000 numbers soon. That for instance compared to STL, where they’re barely at 50% of the traffic of the TWA days despite the WN growth. What’...Jump to post
B6 has never done well at TPA.

Why on earth would they do that now, with the first delivery still 4-5 years away? Unless it was part of a larger deal?

I have to say, I’ve never flown NK but I think they’re really changing their brand’s perception which combined with growing their network and adding larger A321s is a winning combination. They used to have a terrible reputation, but now I know people who absolutely have the means to pay more for oth...Jump to post
I don’t think it would be beneficial to anyone to deviate now from past practices of the FAA and EASA accepting each other’s certifications. Not with Captain tariffs in the White House. Airbus depends heavily on the US market. This seriously sounds like a threat - Do as the US says or we will cause...Jump to post
I hope some over the top posters take notice that the investigation is about FRAUD, not murder. With the result of the fraud leading to deaths.

I know some stuff but I thought this would be good place to come and fill in the gaps regarding the 787s? What routes were the PMCO 787s going to go on assuming no merger? and Which aircraft were ordered by PMCO, which by PMUA, and which after the merger? Did the orders change at any point?

Regarding EWR and Lounge space, since Polaris took over what was a former Unites club space they are short space for non Polaris United club flyers at EWR. So much so that they’re making pop up clubs. With the construction of the new Terminal One well under way perhaps it’s an opportunity for UA. I ...Jump to post

I should have probably made it clear I'm not sure if they were left off in error or if UA h...Jump to post
Hopefully Boeing will bring sales, I’m hoping for a UA order. If they order 88 190s/195s for
Mainline they can add an additional 70 175s for Express.

Just to add what’s already been mentioned: NYC has way more traffic to Asia, especially premium traffic. CO was pioneering the Polar routes which went North and over the Pole to reach Asia, making EWR an ideal location to connect East coast traffic to Asia. CO 772ERs had the performance for EWR- Asi...Jump to post
If that is correct, Boeing missed the 767 window of opportunity. 2027 For first 797 replacement aircraft becoming available is too far out, in today's competitive environment. Also for 757 replacement btw. I think Boeing is well aware of what the real 767 window of opportunity is. Probably not cong...Jump to post
The MIA-LGW route was transferred to sister Texas air Corp carrier CO along with a DC-10. Eastern used the remaining DC-10s to operate MIA-EZE-SCL which switched to MIA-GIG-EZE.

Thanks for sharing, Eastern was my favorite Arline growing.

But what is it with aviation photographers who just stand to the side of the runway and give us copycat side-on spotter-shots?

UA announced the winners of the “Her Art Here” contest, I love the California jet, the NY/NJ one is cool because it’s by a young College student from Clinton New Jersey as depicted on the nose of the aircraft.

My take, If there were a viable business case for a US-Philippines nonstop UA would already by there from SFO. Right now UA only operates Guam-Manila with a 738. If DL were really committed to trying to make Manila work the only possible route that might work would be HNL-MNL. This is a route CO us...Jump to post
I think I read that DL only got 5 of their 6 requests. What was #6? They got SEA, PDX, DTW, ATL, and HNL. They already do MSP and LAX. I don’t see what is missing. They didn’t request SLC so it’s not that. If DL were to start SLC-Asia, my personal opinion is that KE 787 to ICN is the best choice. H...Jump to post
Too bad IAH. Hopefully next time. I don’t think this really is a loss for IAH. Right now IAH has two daily flights to NRT, 1 UA and 1 NH..

So I guess I'm trying to look at what the overall picture might look like in the U.S.-TYO market when all is said and done. If the best case scenario happened for DL (all 6 frequencies awarded) and the DOT split the other 6 evenly between UA and AA, you could have something like this: SEA-HND (1x N...Jump to post
If I recall correctly from UA’s application ORD and IAD will be a shift of existing NRT flights to HND. EWR and LAX will be new adds that will be in addition to the existing NRT flights.
ORD 772, LAX 787–10, EWR 772, IAD 772.
Sounds like WN will increase it's gates to 37 and have around 48 RON aircraft.

It makes sense for sure. WN will be taking most, if not all of the new D gates under construction, bringing them to 20. I could see them eventually taking all of C and D in another decade after A is redeveloped and expanded. That would bring them to 25 gates (not counting the common use internation...Jump to post
I didn’t see it mentioned but WN is the one really at a competitive disadvantage as they don’t interline.

I just connected through ATL last week traveling from MCO, to PHL. There were plenty others making the same connection. I usually fly from EWR but WN dropped the EWR-MCO flights so O drove to PHL.

Question about maintenance bases, why does UA still do maintenance at HOU and airport they don’t serve.
