“76-Seat Aircraft” means aircraft configured with more than seventy (70) passenger seats but no more than seventy-six (76) passenger seats, and certificated in the United States for ninety (90) or fewer passenger seats and with a maximum United States certificated gross takeoff weight of 86,000 or ...Jump to post
Going to the WTO is probably a nice gift to Trump as he will be able to spin again that the world trade system is broken, and the US should not be part of agreements like it. Gives more impetus to his push of one on one bilateral trade deals instead. The ultimate backfire for Boeing and the US, wou...Jump to post
Been reading and following most of this thread, but just wanna throw my opinion on it. I can't believe that they are imposing these tarrifs, at least in this first round of debate.

Can't speak to you about Delta, my nephew works for them and he started as a contractor at Atlanta. I wouldn't do that .

UA needs additional mainline, about 100 more, and more large 75 seaters. The answer to both is a new 100 seater mainline, if they add an additional 88 100 seat mainline they can add an additional 70 ERJ-175s. Considering what's going on with the CSeries and the latest Boeing news perhaps they will ...Jump to post
I am really, really hoping for ALL 767-300 & 400 ultimately get Polaris. There are hubs like EWR that are very 767 focused. The inconsistency if just 14 have Polaris will feel like a half baked measure. I totally get the expense involved and if it was to take another 2.5 years to do both the 76...Jump to post
Is UA ever going to add CMH-SFO or are they content to run a distant fourth in Columbus? I'll start out by saying that I see Chicago-Toledo as a new United Express route, served 3x a day on E145s or CRJ200s. Where did you see this?

Curious as to why there are issues with the blades on this one engine....seems a major cock-up by RR and a costly one to boot! Unfortunately? The material they used?

I'm curious for those who say that a simple stretch of the a380 (without a new wing or engine) is too expensive, doesn't the 747-8 prove the opposite? The 748 was launched with an expectation of probably only selling at best 100-200 planes. Granted Boeing didn't view it as a blockbuster like the 78...Jump to post
With the last Delta 747 parked, it got me to thinking....what happens to the thousands of gallons of unused fuel when say a 747 is parked for the last time.

A moot point starting today...all 737s. Actually it is not a moot point the domestic 777's return to the ORD-SFO route late February and UA does run widebodies on other hub to hub routes.

I think this is a shot in the "Chops" to Emirates.
