Thank you for posting. :bigthumbsup: Suppose the fast arrival of MAX/NEO frames will push down values of older frames same how the 737NG arrival pushed down values of 300/400/500 series.

Lets remember SQ management about 2-years ago stated their goal was to get out of their many historic 5th freedom routes and link markets both in Europe and North America all nonstop to their home hub. I actually don't understand how LAX-NRT-SIN is more worth keeping than LAX-ICN-SIN. There's far mo...Jump to post
The UA side of the operation does better than the rest of UA but Mesa as a whole is still terrible performance wise.

-Will T4 become 'shared gate usage?" -No new AA maintenance base? With additional gates comes more aircraft utilization and where will the work be done?

Seems unlikely since they already codeshare with Air France-KLM which has Britain covered very well. They even own a part of those airlines.

I’m amazed that the US hasn’t cancelled the F35 sale to Turkey, I don’t see how anyone can see them as a reliable partner, they should also be expelled from NATO.

The CSeries was just perfect for GF, a very capable airliner that's small enough to allow them to serve markets too small to be flown by the ME3's bigger birds.

I've made that point clear in several post by say the 789 is being stretched to its limit on this route in our current configuration I never implied or meant to imply the 789 can't do the route. But so far I've haven't heard even so much as a rumor of UA reconfiguring any 789's with 162 or so seats...Jump to post
LAXIntl point is actually spot on. A 162 seat 787-9 could do the flight easily with cargo capacity to spare. One does not need such a niche airplane as A350ULR. UA 787-9 with 252 seats obviously takes the payload hit and hence the seat block which brings its typical capacity down to ~200-210 range d...Jump to post

Blocking upwards of 50+ seats during peak winter certainly did not help. Any updates whether this could affect IAH-SYD, is it possible that UA would axe it to add in a 2nd daily SFO-SYD?

My question is, how is UA able to maintain these routes while AA, and DL pull out? Its largely because of California. UA can own the local SF traffic.

Correct me if I'm wrong but when WOW first came into LAX, didn't the plane come in, overnight, and set off for KEF in the morning around 9/10am or so?

No one is saying there is no opportunity at BUR or other secondary airports, but the fact is for BUR that it is very much a local community airport tucked in a corner of mega greater LA. It simply will not draw people from all over (nor does it want to).Jump to post
Yes thank you LAX for the post.
You often share very interesting data with us. Its nice to see actual numbers, then just random discussion or conjecture.
