As many free upgrades as United hands out, I understand why they feel they can cut costs on meals and such. Sure it cheapens the whole product but until they stop giving them away like candy im good with it. So your proposal is to leave seats empty up front domestically if they aren't sold? Or are ...Jump to post

Looks like the second daily AS flight is on an E175 and will replace the VX A319 on SEA-DAL. Perhaps just a brand recognition thing for folks in SEA to book the flight, or maybe the route isn't performing to their expectations. I am curious when the staffing troubles will end at QX, however, becaus...Jump to post
Okay. You can fly wide bodies domestically quite a bit these days. Nothing special.Jump to post

Anyone know what’s going on at CLT? Some type of emergency incident on the regional ramp over at concourse E. Have seen a few different things on Twitter. A groundstop is now in effect for all AA regional jet traffic that would normally park at E. Multiple reports now that a plane hit a tug on taxi ...Jump to post

I just read the article. Geez, I guess he approved of the groom! And here I am praying every time I fly a United 747 that my upgrade to F will clear! Question: How does UA take a whole 747 out of regular service for a special charter like this? Do they keep a spare around just for this kind of thin...Jump to post
I think they are purposely creating a condition to where Horizon can't meet performance goals thus allowing AAG to send even more flying out to SkyWest without violating the contract.Jump to post

Lol. I don't foresee any US major pilot groups giving up more scope. It's just not going to happen right now.Jump to post
Wouldn't this change have to be negotiated with the unions? Wouldn't this benefit need to be bargained for collectively? I haven't looked at the RLA on this, but it just seems weird that a substantial union employer could just give employees more money, regardless of the good intent behind it. Anyt...Jump to post
he also updated United disaster policy. When a station or a work site is closed because of a disaster employees will now be paid for all days their site is closed. Before the policy was employees were paid for one day only this was the policy under Smisek when Super Storm Sandy hit the the Northeas...Jump to post

Looks like they just went missed pretty early... could have been an un-stable approach or loss of lateral separation if they were running dual approaches. Looking at the weather doesn't appear they would have been running SOIA at that time but rather visuals.Jump to post
All three of United's inbounds from the 21st have diverted to Osaka, Seoul, and Tokyo. The three flights from EWR, ORD, and SFO on the 22nd have been cancelled.Jump to post

https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/united-continues-to-evaluate-100-seat-mainline-aircr-440455/ Interesting as this was all but ruled out not too long ago. The main hurdle seems to be the costs associated with introducing a new fleet type. But if they can get the frames at an attractive cost...Jump to post

Article is in Spanish but.. United is launching winter seasonal saturday-only service between Chicago-ORD and Mazatlan, Mexico (MZT/MMZT) to be operated by an Airbus 319.

I thought I remember that the T5 A380 gate(s) would be ready about now and that we could expect LH or EK late summer, fall 2017, no? Isn't Lufthansa's "thing" in Chicago to depart from Terminal 1? Yes, but all International Flights arrive at T5, except for the pre-clearance ones... Right....Jump to post

Looks like it was Delta to the rescue. I wonder how much DL charged AI to transport these items and I wonder if this was Emirates if DL would have helped out? It's called an AOG program.

What are the chances United is actually making a play for Frontier? It's a quick way to gain access to more narrow bodies, specifically 321 and knocks out a ulcc competitor. Just seems like an odd fight to pick.Jump to post
There's no way they will consolidate on D and I'm not sure there's enough room on T so they may be running dual ops for the foreseeable future.Jump to post

What does UA gain? BOS and some planes? They left JFK for a reason and there is no way the Feds let them keep the JFK hub and EWR megahub. It doesn't make sense. Planes, employees, reduced competition, increased exposure in the Caribbean and Latin America markets. The elusive SE hub in FLL. There's...Jump to post
