It might make sense for LH to route pax originating at MUC and DUS via SQ at MAN. Only issue is UA probably won't allow onward connections at IAH (they don't get on with SQ). However, there are plenty of decent onward options. It doesn't make sense... LH has a revenue-sharing immunized TATL joint v...Jump to post
Just curious as to why Boeing kept the practice of a manual girt bar for arming/disarming the slide rather than an automatic one as on most aircraft today. Thank you.

I don't thiink Delta would play this game. They would want the best price period for their A321s and could care less what clause AA had with Airbus. Ironically, AA's 'most favored nation' status with Boeing was cited as a reason Airbus was able to snag AA in 2011. AA's 1996 20-year exclusive suppli...Jump to post
I find this interesting. Ua is clearly far and away the most profitable of the legacies in NYC. Now Kirby also says it is the most profitable by quite a bit in lax.

Very sad day. I mean, not for Air Wisconsin, but we were on the road to getting rid of the CR2. While we all agree that any 50-seater is not optimal, they're still better than no airplane.

When new aircraft types get fitted with Polaris, like the 767, 772, do you think will they be doing training flights for some time on EWR-SFO as the 77Ws did?

With what aircraft? DL doesn't have many available planes, and they're using the 359 for 744 replacement, and neither DL nor AA even have long haul out of SFO, so why would they start off with a route that would cause overcapacity, and would require a large part of the fleet that can do this route?...Jump to post
DL has a lot of old school UA managers who left during BK, very innovative indeed.

> Up to 70 additional 76-seaters can be added if UA adds a "new small narrowbody." The NSNB is defined as a CS100, E190, or E195. Any 737 or A320 series does *not* count as a NSNB. The CS300 does not count either. Presumably, the E2 series would count, but it is not explicitly defined. Th...Jump to post
If a 737-700 can fly SNA-HNL with a full load, I would assume a 737-7 Max certainly could. ETOPS reserves and performance issues out of SNA routinely caused the UA SNA-HNL flight to be weight-restricted, limiting revenue on a high-cost route. It also did not capture enough of a premium to justify k...Jump to post
I can't remember what was changed though....been to long since iv flown it. Off the top of my head, I believe the SFP has sealed slats and increased deflection for ground spoilers.

Most of the ERJs will replace the remaining 16 Q200s, which are 37-seat turboprops. The 50-seat ERJs will be a capacity increase.
The 5 oddball Q300s were already slated to leave the C5 fleet this year... total of 21 frames, essentially a one-for-one exchange, plus flying C5 has taken over from XE.

IIRC, the seats on the 777, 787-8/9/10 will be the same width. If they go 1-2-1 on the 787 (as suggested), they won't be.
