Re: Will AS, DL, UA, WN, or F9 add nonstop service from CLT to destinations west of SLC?

Presumably, Wells Fargo has a corporate contract with AA; otherwise, I could see UA flying SFO-CLT. WF wouldn't do a deal with AA if they didn't do SFO CLT, no way UA has the WF contract. The other issue is that overall originating traffic in SFO is much less than CLT for this route and the latter ...

Re: Boeing officially forms program office to flesh out 797 plans

An observation: Every A and B plane since 1990: 777, 380, 787, 350 (and almost the reworked 330s) is a long ranger. They also lend themselves to being abused as a trans Atlantic. It seems time for an optimized at 3500-4500 nautical miles plane to appear. And one of the biggest demands of airlines w...
