Personally, I think DL made a great choice. 1 - They already had the A330 in their fleet so were well versed in it's capabilities and likely very comfortable with the neo from the outset. 2 - The A330neo/A359 combo is completely flexible and largely interchangeable based on route length/passenger d...Jump to post
Right, so once again, everyone is a victim, no one can ever do anything to better themselves, and it's all up to the benevolence of others to make it happen. Democrats only, though - right?

Nice slander. Appreciate that. And the mods let you spew your rhetoric and vitriol like this. The mods cannot be on every thread all of the time. Sometimes we read a thread, like I'm doing right now, and sometimes we don't. If you feel someone has attacked you personally, make use of the suggest de...Jump to post
I'm also atheist, but I'm the happy-go-lucky kind: I don't care if you don't eat pork or think homosexuality is a sin, just don't legislate it into my daily life. Vilifying statements like these don't do us any favors; that's like going on a crusade to kill all bees because you got stung by one aft...Jump to post
Republicans care deeply about free speech. When they're not legislating away free speech by launching dozens of bills criminalizing protesters, or bankrolling actual Nazis to push 'free speech' on campuses, they're body slamming them.

Ah, that common trope. And yet in the UK, Canada, EU, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, etc. doctors, nurses, and all the associated professions get paid.

Shoddy, fake news article reads like an advertisement. Delta just the other day was railing more against the ME3 in Minnesota, trying to get them further behind them.

If the Republicans had any say in it, there wouldn´t be a special prosecutor. If it becomes definitive that he knew about Flynn before hand and didn´t act on the information, he´d be just as gone as Trump.

I can't say I'm shocked. The man has proven himself time and again an unhinged, careless dolt.

As well they should've. Spend 5 seconds reading the Liebeck case, and you'll know how INCREDIBLY negligent McD's was in the lead-up to that incident.

I have to strongly disagree. I know a lot of Boeing people want us all to believe that it's just mindset , but I can absolutely tell the difference.

I know many of you are going to disagree, but the whole "the airlines are just giving customers what they want" mantra is just crap economics-speak.

I can't say I'm shocked. I understand why they consolidated, but I think it was obvious to all observers it wasn't going to be as net positive as the UA spin machine wanted everyone to believe. It's particularly interesting to hear that the move hurt them with respect to West Coast clients.Jump to post
While I agree that United needs to probably re-brand, reverting back to Continental is not the way to go. Everyone at the company could use a fresh start.

Let's pretend DL really does have concerns about the 359's ability to make LAX-SYD.
