Looks like there is a United 747-400 inbound to ORD right now. It is not a regularly scheduled flight but might really be the last -400 at ORD. Its N116UA so based on the info above will certainly be the last ORD flight for that frame. https://www.flightradar24.com/UAL2100/c237421 Over Minnesota no...Jump to post
Wow, that is shocking. I assume they fly to HND already?Jump to post
I think some flight attendants could definitely learn some better methods of communicating with their passengers BUT, the flying public needs to learn that if flight attendant tells you to sit down, you sit down.Jump to post

This all looks great but it seems like this would have been a good idea a long time ago. The whole terminal complex is such a hodge podge and extremely inefficient. I haven't been to JFK for years but it seems like it would be wasteful to just replace T1 (built in 1998), T4 (built in 2001) and T8 (b...Jump to post
Have they still not found the plane? So sad to see a whole family wiped out. RIPJump to post
Who is the largest at ORD? AA or UA in terms of passengers flown. Thanks in advance for the answere. Last time I checked, AA had more daily departures. I don't have the numbers off hand but I believe UA is larger for both metrics at ORD, aircraft movements and passengers. I love ORD as my home airp...Jump to post
Other question: Can the new painting facility in Charleston fit two 787's at the same time? Must be, because otherwise they would have to send some of them to Victorville & Co. for painting? As per the article, yes, it has two bays! Congrats to Boeing and Charleston. I think it is exciting to s...Jump to post
I am very excited to see one of these in person! In addition to Chapter 11, I think the bigger reason UA didn't take a 77W earlier is that it didn't need it. UA already had a large 744 fleet that wasn't near retirement, yet, and a large 772 fleet. The 744 was already too much for them. The 77W is a ...Jump to post
Congratulations to Mr. Munoz and everyone at United! Does this mean that the merger is finally complete or are there some random elements of this airline that are still operating separately?Jump to post
If it was resorts, the Caribbean is littered with such resorts. The competition is stiff here. Most Americans don't think Cuba when they want to go on vacation in the Caribbean. There's Puerto Rico, Jamaica, US Virgin Islands, etc. It's going to take some time before Americans get comfortable with ...Jump to post
Two things strike me about this thread. Firstly, that the mods haven't yet changed the title nearly 36 hours after the confirmed crash. And more than anything, the lack of posts. This is a crash with a significant loss of life but compared to the EK crash in DXB recently where there were no fatalit...Jump to post
Oh no! A deal that will improve the two nations relations and give billions to the US. Oh no! Not sure where if you are from, but if anyone watched the presidential campaign, our new president is likely to find a way out of the nuclear deal that has been struck with Iran. Welcome back to the cold w...Jump to post
Ironically, I think if Trump was president, he would support this deal for the simple reason, it makes good business sense. It brings billions to our working class. He has proven to do business with anyone if means making a buck. Disclaimer: I am NOT a Trump supporter (I voted for Hillary) in any w...Jump to post

It is true. My wife is UA Platinum and is travelling around the Gulf now. Not a big deal trying to get around once you are there since they are short flights but getting to there from North America is limited especially if you want to earn premier qualifying miles towards UA status.

Yes, LGA is still a dump. Granted, most of my experience is with the UA A gates in Terminal B. But you know it is bad if you can touch the ceiling...which I can and I am only 6' tall. I flew in and out of LGA this past weekend and was happy to see construction happening adjacent to the UA gates. Of ...Jump to post
Great find and good interview. Nice to put more of a face and voice with the name we have been talking about for the past year! Things appears to be on the up and up at UA, congratulations!Jump to post
The agreement for the final runway 9C/27C was announced in January of this year. Has construction started on this runway? Is the closing of 14L/32R a prelude to that construction?
Also, is the extension of 9R/27L also funded as part of that agreement?
IAD isn't going anywhere. UA doesn't have another east coast hub that can absorb that traffic. EWR is essentially at capacity and will never be expanding so the growth on the east coast will have to come from IAD. Washington/Baltimore is the 4th largest metro area in the country with a lot of wealth...Jump to post

I am pleasantly surprised to see AA go outside of their comfort zone on this, nice going AA. ORD-ICN should be a huge market and the OneWorld O&D out of Chicago should be significant. Add in all of AA's connections at ORD and I think they could make this work with a 787. I was always surprised t...Jump to post

Anxious to see what they are planning. I still haven't seen any plans or renderings of the proposed expansion of T1L and T5 yet it appears as though construction is imminent and maybe even begun on T5. Yet they are still master planning the entire terminal core which may or may not include these exp...Jump to post
Tally to date:

ORD: T1: 50 T2: 41 T3: 72 T5: 21 (Could be less with more larger aircraft) Total: 184 Note: I counted the aircraft spots that can be accessed to the terminal with a jet bridge. As airbazar noted, some spots have two bridges for one plane going to one gate, I counted those as 1. Also, some gates have...Jump to post
Lastly. threshold. LN 400 (1991/92 built frames) looks like where the line is currently drawn between scrap and second hand sale. Very few pre-1992 frames are seeing any second life. What is the plan for UA's large 763 fleet? They have 21 older 763s that are the same age as the ones being scrapped:...Jump to post
ORD - BCN That is exciting... I am guessing this is the first time these cities have been connected? Nice to see AA explore outside the box from ORD. That said, I would imagine there are enough One World loyalists in Barcelona that would provide significant feed from that end also? Does Iberia have...Jump to post
