First pic definitely and the second one is close. Could be saved maybe. I always err on the side of zooming in too much. If you get a really good shot and cut something off you have a better shot of it getting accepted than if you are too far away.

Must say I like your pic's. Especially the Westjet.
I tend to like it when there's a little "enviroment" in a picture.
Regarding the UA, I think it would be fair to say it's just a little bit too much "air" in it. It's only blue(ish) sky and that doesn't really contribute to the picture, as a whole. Had there been a monstrous CB behind the 737 however, then the situation probably would've been somewhat different.
But, what I think doesn't mean squat to the screeners, so you'll just have to go with the flow, and tighten up the crop on them pic's.
Personally I hate clipping the wings off an aircraft, even if it's only on a picture. Takes the grace away, if you ask me.

Thanks a lot guys. I was starting to get a little frustrated with the rejections, but it now feels a better to know that at least they are appreciated by some! I understand the quality levels of A-Net and have no problems with it at all, and the feedback from you guys is what will actually help people improve their photos.
I have attached two (2) revisions of the WestJet picture, any feedback will be appreciated. In one I have cropped the photo to include just the aircraft, and in the second I cropped close to the windsock (I prefer this for the aesthetics).
