If you guys are done tearing each other down I have more fodder to add to the fire.

I still haven't voted yet. I'm having trouble deciding. For the male voice, I think I like Jeremy Hubbard the best, even though he's relatively the least known. He has a pleasant voice and oddly enough, he probably has the closest to that great old west cadence that Pete Smythe had. I wish Ernie Bjo...Jump to post
I always roll my eyes when a fellow American talks about their Irish heritage. My great grandparents were from Ireland, we're still in touch with some distant relatives over there, and we've visited them a few times. But that's about it. I'm an American from Denver otherwise. I am not Irish by any m...Jump to post
A recent rumour was that Aer Lingus was to source yet another A330 for this summer, they've already announced plans for two, a factory fresh A333 from Airbus and an A332 from Qatar Airways but the third was to be for either a Denver service or used as a "spare" aircraft to give the fleet ...Jump to post

After watching the 15 minute video explaining the design process, I'm starting to get on board with the whole thing.

On an emotional level, if you were an F9 fan, maybe it felt predatory. But WN really didn't do anything wrong. Remember that WN avoided serving DEN for so long reputedly in protest of DIA's high landing fees. Once F9 was doing somewhat well and when a weak UA was still in bankruptcy did WN realize w...Jump to post
Thanks. Looks like this was the flight that I heard about:

Hopefully the video turns out nicely, just like the last A330 one!
I heard that DL was shooting promo video of an "Airbus" over SBA around 5:30 tonight. Anyone have any other information on it? I asked what specific aircraft type, but nobody knew. I'm guessing it must have been an A330, but an A350 would be possible. I also gather that it must have gone i...Jump to post
No offense but none of the amateur designs that have been posted here look like anything Lufthansa would want to put on their planes of years to come. The newest one looks like the plane has got a rash on it's face or a beard or whatever. And that is true for almost every thread about an airline ge...Jump to post
I have never taken a flight or stayed there but I have passed through Wendover while driving between Denver and San Francisco many times.

It's surprising to me that American is losing money in Denver, even with that they are adding a JFK flight this summer. I wonder what Spirit would add other then the already announced BWI flight. Always thought JetBlue would add Fort Lauderdale to its other flights or even LA despite the heavy comp...Jump to post

Seems more likely they would cannibalize some E+ or E seats for PE.
There won't be an upgraded CRJ for sure since the next generation (CS-100 and CS-300) are already there to replace it with. Not too long ago Embraer did the same thing by replacing their T-tail design (ERJ-135 and 145) by the E-Jets. Now Bombardier has done the same. The CSeries is most definitely ...Jump to post
NBC used to be near the airport. If you are old enough to remember "Laugh In," Gary Owens used to start the show by saying, "From beautiful downtown Burbank, it's Rowan & Martin's Laugh In." During WWII, Lockheed had a factory at the airport. A fake town was built on top of ...Jump to post
SMX should really be pushing for an OO/AA* flight to PHX. SFO/LAX are both so short that there is essentially no O&D traffic - PHX would have some O&D and offer much of the same connectivity without all the congestion...

I seem to recall the issue with the 767 at DEN is tyre speed. Higher density altitude would result in a higher landing/rotation speed, but 767s have operated in DEN for years without an issue. I just don't think it would quite have the legs to make it out of DEN with a full load headed to Europe. I...Jump to post
UA pulled LOS because currency restrictions made it impossible for UA to collect payments on Nigeria point of sale reservations.

Personally the best livery in this post is the blue one closest to the camera. They should have done that one without the color tulip next to the United name. It's a very classy high end look. I always thought the Rising Blue livery with some CO gold thrown in would have been a winner. The Rising B...Jump to post
I think the train design is some cause for concern, but I think a lot of the criticism of it is overblown. While there were problems on Wednesday, it was not a total system failure. That has only happened, what, two times now, and the airport does, in fact, have a contingency plan in the event of a ...Jump to post
I have never been on any of the ERJ-135/140/145s and I really wish we'd see some out west in the UA system. I've heard such mild-to-great reviews of them, and I'm stuck on a crappy SkyWest CRJ-200 way too often.Jump to post

As a DEN homer, this is nice to see SLC invest so much in a new design. The warm tones will look nice and will be a welcome change from the sterile whites and greys that are in vogue at so many airports. The linear concourse layout in the same style of ATL, DEN, and MUC is the right way to go too. A...Jump to post
Also worth pointing out that UA is also putting domestic planes on some TATL routes next summer. The domestic 777 will be on EWR-DUB and a few other lower yielding routes. The key difference, though, is that UA's domestic 777 still has lie flats up front and can be justifiably sold as J, while it's ...Jump to post
Thank you for this! Can't wait until they build more as well as increase the seating when the west end of A is expanded. Right now, it feels a little cramped.

Mildly-related question: does anyone know whether B is *wider* than A and C? It's obviously longer, but somebody was trying to tell me today that he thought B was also wider.

While I understand they came up with an A350 solution as 772 replacements, part of me still finds it hard to believe UA will start retiring 777s in 5-10 years.

I think it's certainly possible. DEN was always the second largest hub pre-merger. Post-merger, as far as daily departures go, it has always been nearly tied with EWR. So if IAH doesn't grow or shrinks, and if DEN grows more than expected, then it's very possible. It's already growing from where it ...Jump to post
"SFO doesn't have the room to store a B747. There's No public access" How about the old World/UA 747 hangar at OAK? A UA Museum? Probably room in there for a 747, and 3-4 smaller ex-UA aircraft?? Plenty of retired UA folks to run it. Delta can do it successfully (in ATL), why not UA? OAK ...Jump to post
They now code their Comfort+ service as premium economy (W) domestically. This is still the same class of service as the buy-up option on American on United. Lots of confusion here.
