I agree with other comments on here, advise that you will be fined if you take personal belongings. Some might have an issue with that but I sure as hell know they will have a bigger issue if someone they knew perished in an accident because they were impeded on their exit due to the stupidity of ot...Jump to post
Looking at this from over the pond, tourism to Mexico is falling off a cliff, primarily due to the high crime rate, maybe that's having a knock on effect with the US passengers going there there as well now. Having been to Dominican Republic in January I would say that place with the amount of traff...Jump to post
Whilst I cannot wait for a new livery, basing this on a rumour, we could be waiting absolutely god knows how many years!
We may as well state , UA is to get a new livery......as we know they will some day, along with new aircraft etc etc
God forbid if a flight attendant spilt water on his lap mid flight, His lawsuit would be running into millions.
The whole thing just staggers me!

Jesus, I cannot keep up with these announcements from them.
Can we second guess next weeks announcement?
I would say I hope they will succeed, a few people I know that have flown on them both long and short haul, raved about them.
Thank you for compiling this.
When is UA going to bring some 787 love to ORD?
Writing this from a comfortable Business Class seat on board AA 777-200ER. Which about sums up what is good about them: the seats in J class, and WiFi. Whilst not all ME3 planes have 1-2-1 configuration in J (EK 777, QR A330s and B777s in old config) most do (EK 380s, QR 787 and A380 and A350, all ...Jump to post

... that's one hell of a long route home ... FYI: - AKL - DXB = 8,824 mi - AKL - DPS - DXB = 8,844 mi (+ a mere 20 mi) The routing via DPS is shorter than the existing one-stop routings via BNE and MEL, and would be shorter than via SIN too.

Who is going to fly to AKL vis DPS to Europe and vice versa? Apart from A.Nutters that's one hell of a long route home when you factor in DXB.[/quote] Did you contradict yourself? Plenty of people will do 2 stops to Europe if it’s significantly cheaper. Europeans coming to NZ on EK might go LHR-DXB-...Jump to post
EK have lower costs than NZ, and can top up the flight with Europe connections, which it dominates.

I would say it was only a matter of time before BA went back as clearly there is demand but the security of their staff is foremost. Not a place I think a lot of crews will volunteer to go to IMHO.Jump to post
I mean like........words fail me.....is this story for real? Why did this person even think in the first instance that this poor little hamster was going to fly with her...and what happens afterwards......absolutely bonkers! She needs therapy!Jump to post
Would like to see the source for this. Some bad blood between Flybe and LoganAir. You cannot just keep chopping and changing like this without someone paying some ££££.
Will wait and watch for an official announcement.
Will we see VIE - LTN or another London destination at some point??Jump to post
if that's a re-brand and someone is getting pad for that then I am clearly in the wrong business!Jump to post
Lets come back here his time next year and see if DY exist in their current form or have hit the rocks. I personally think they will be here and will have expanded. I have not flown them myself yet but if the numbers are right when I go to NY in September then I will give them a go. I know a number ...Jump to post
Another reason to avoid this crass cheap outfit. Tell me, do they still play that tacky tune when they and on time?Jump to post
It's funny, I was just talking about UA's lack of Southeast presence and their ignorance toward opening up more routes down here, even if they don't open a hub. UA's hubs are terrible for the most part and unless you live near them, they are inaccessible to most people and rely on a large Express n...Jump to post
I don't see this being MAXed out. I see it being an available aircraft within a short space of time (Jan 2018)Possibly adding some refinements that are already certified. If you talk about adding new this and that tech then you're spending money on development that could be spent on a new design. I...Jump to post
Yowzer!! New menu cards and cutlery. Well they have my business! (sarcasm button off!) Seriously man, you would have thought Delta reinvented the wheel the way you go on!
I do not think UA and AA are going to be quaking in their boots with this announcement.
Whilst I loved the tulip, I echo what UA777lover has stated. That ship has sailed. The combined company needs to look forward and not back and if/when they do rebrand it needs to be something completely new or if not a brand that recognises both Continentals and United history in the brand. The last...Jump to post
Well done for this thread, great work.
Will miss the 747s big time. Managed to bag many a flight on these beauties, mostly with UA across the pacific into HKG and out of LHR.
Such a sad day but seemed inevitable.
Had many a flight on monarch since the 1980s. Now have to add these to the list of the likes of Air Europe and Dan Air that carved out my love for flying from an early age and now all going the way of the dodo.
Good luck to all the staff.
What a joke. Going from LHR to STN is just putting another nail in the coffin. Someone turn the lights off on the way out!Jump to post
With the mess at Ryanair at present (cancellations) and a lot of pilots jumping ship from them to Norwegian, this was never going to work anyway in my view.
The spat between these two is going to grow and grow.
Where's all the A350 armchair CEO's now who said the A350 would never come to UA!
Jeez. Can you get hold of the writer of this article and tell him I have a beach front villa in the Sahara to sell if he is interested. Absolute nonsense that the pilot made those comments.Jump to post
Count me out on those routes. 20 hours in coach? Not unless I've been cryogenically frozen.

The passenger has hit out at the airport staff and the staff member has defended himself. I am British and ashamed to see this, the passenger should have been arrested for assault, simple as. You simply cannot go around hitting people.......end of.Jump to post
This is great news and one that took me by surprise. loved the direct flight previously but my god the 777 was way too much aircraft at that time. The 788 is as people have already stated perfect and I certainly hope the flights sticks to year round eventually.Jump to post
