Houston was never a focus city for delta. What are you talking about? They only ever flew to their hubs. Still only fly to their hubs.

Re: 787-10 and United Airlines

The conversion to the 77W was to get 744 replacements into the fleet ASAP. The 744 was having operational issues and maintenance costs were skyrocketing. It became obvious that the original idea of replacing the 744 with A359s didn't make sense. Some routes could be better served by 789s already in...

I wouldn't assume the A359s will completely replace the 777-200ERs. Something like ~20 of those -200ERs are ex-Continental planes that were delivered between 2010 and 2011; they're substantially newer than the ex-United aircraft. Note not all of the PMCO 777s are that new. 16 are 98-00, 2 are 02, a...
