Re: Did United/Continental Ever Fly Mainland US - Guam?

The DC-10s with CMI titles were DC-10-10s (IIRC, along with the 747s) but were cycled through the mainland somewhat regularly, especially after 1997 up to their retirement. EWR-SFO-HNL used to run with a DC-10 until EWR-HNL went nonstop, and the SFO-HNL leg was dropped at some time thereafter. CO ne...

Re: BA 777 multiple lightning stikes this morning @ EZE

UAL 764 EZE-EWR canceled last night for a mechanical as well, though I'm not sure exactly why.

Every time I pass through EZE it seems that some foreign heavy is AOG somewhere on the airport. Earlier in the year it was a UA 777, in August a LH 748, and now the BA 777!

No 789s at EWR yet, and 777 fleet is stretched a bit with Polaris mods. Hopefully EWRICN is in the cards within the next few years.
