Re: Did DL, UA, or AA Ever Come Close To Ordering The A380 or 748?

UA was likely the closest in considerations, but I doubt it ever got to serious levels. If the VLAs had come along earlier, maybe UA would have bitten. I think if UA would have had money they would have bitten and at least gone for the 748i. If I'm not mistaken Boeing did pitch the 748i to UA early...

The problem with convective activity is that it either restricts the amount of traffic a sector can handle, or worse, it comple...
