About a year ago UA was interested in Dual-Loading Bridges for narrowbodies. They had Pictures of a WN bridge with a dual bridge OVER THE WING to the rear door. UA didn't like that approach, but those pictures they had of this bridge were amazing. Anybody know where these are I heard BWI. Does anybody have pics of them.

Found this tid-bit...

"To help improve its faltering ontime performance, Southwest will increase its minimum connection time to 45 min. in June from 25 min. today and will eliminate all three-stop flights. It continues to experiment with dual jetways at Dallas Love Field and Austin, and Executive VP Jim Wimberly called them "promising" in speeding boarding and deplaning but said reliability to date has been "disappointing." The two units currently are being modified."

No picture though.



What's another word for thesaurus?

Southwest really had a good system down for getting those planes in and out in less than 30min. They boarded those planes like a heard of cattle. Now the mandatory picture-id verifications and "random" screenings slow this down a bit.


Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.
