Re: United Airlines posts Q2 results, fuel expense rose 43%

Please stick to the topic. Off topic comments and flame bait will be removed. There's no reason for this to be an inflammatory subject. Users wanting to be critical of UA's customer service or aspects unrelated to their Q2 results should do so in a more appropriate topic.

Re: Phoenix Aviation Thread - 2018

Interesting insights. Thanks, didn't know these things. The thing about the 321 really surprises me. Well then if AA does come and do a PHX-LHR maybe it'll be a 772. Wonder if they could dovetail that with the HNL route and solve two A330 issues? That would require two frames, but I would think the...

Looks like they're still running the Sermon South routes, so all of the flights departing NYC for the DC Metros and RDU are capped at 6,000ft (and 250k, obviously). Airlines don't have to accept the routing and altitude/speed cap, but it's one way they can get out sooner.
