Re: A310 - too early?

I do not think so by one single reason: it is widely expected that Boeing's MOM will be single aisle which the A310 was not. Nowadays, you would see the B787-8 potentially competing to the A310 if this one was still in the market (maybe a slightly stretched A310 that is...).What I would argue is th...

Re: UA's domestic 777 vs DC-10

I don't think we got the DC10 here at IAH...perhaps prior to deregulation. Before the merger HOU got 737-200/300s and 727-200s; where as IAH got DC8, 72S, 733/735/73S, and the 757. 757 was the largest we got to SFO and DEN until right after the merger was announced we had a 763 in UA colors run SFO-...
