All flights were leaving the east coast for the west lots of fuel all flights were due to depart within 15 mins of each other and they all had common ratings 757/767...Prob a major reason why the chose the planes they chose not by the flight numbers

Or that both American and United Airlines are well known American carriers that would grab international attention.

If this happened 10 years ago, they would've chose Pan Am and TWA.

At Eastern, we earn our wings every day!

It doesn't help that AA ans UA are the #1and#2 carriers in the world. This just shows that they can get anywhere.  Crying

Ripcordd, you're right. These guys knew how to fly the 757/767, and I think UA/AA are the only airlines that are leaving all three airports, BOS, Washington DC, and EWR, within that short time frame.

not to seem unconcerned, but this seems to be a compelling reason to fly the number three airline. I don't know who that is, but gee..... if all of those people had flown TWA, a whole bunch of lives would have been saved. I know that's a stretch, but you get my point. What torture it must be fore the families- "Why didn't I buy my son a ticket on Delta?"

How terrible.

Sad to say but in terrorism the creation of an impact with your activities is very important. By choosing AA and UA, the 2 best known US airlines they created an additional impact in this macabre event.

God be with us all at this time and condolences to all who lost loved ones.


Hop to it, fly for life!

Both American and United are probably the only two airlines that fly aircraft as large as the 767/ 757 on frequent transcontinental flights. Transcontinental flights have the most fuel onboard of any domestic flight. Any international flight with more fuel on board would have been a lot harder to hijack because of tougher security measures.
It's obvious why the particular airlines, planes, flights and routes were chosen. Whoever planned this out unfourtunately did a very good job.

NWA flies DC10s transcontinental. Delta used to fly Tristars, they use 767s now I guess.

I wish I were flying
