Re: Airline traffic rights: JetBlue targets United's silence over partner Air China’s fifth freedom over PEK-IAH-PTY rou

The US3 have an entire world of 5th freedoms available to them to exploit yet choose not to. In fact look in Asia where DL and UA have abandoned a lot of their longstanding 5ths.[/quote] They "choose not to" because a publicly traded airline that has to turn a profit and is financially res...

Fifth Freedom implies the right to transport between the intermediate stops. Meaning CA could sell IAH-PTY tickets.[/quote]

Wow I'm shocked this was approved...not just a tag on flight.

Re: UA 'very seriously' looking at CSeries and E2

I'm looking at the most current contract in content locker dated Nov 2017. Page 21 doesn't specify E1 or E2. Where are you seeing this "E190" and "E195" were exactly the terms used back then. And it's still on the contract today, unchanged. It meant E1 back then. And it still me...

Re: UA 'very seriously' looking at CSeries and E2

Important edit: In the UA labor agreement, the "new small narrowbody" is defined as a CS100, E190E1, or E195E1.
E190E2/E195E2 don't count as a NSNB.[/quote]

Re: United eyes A330-800 for fleet replacement

People speak of the loooong runway requirements of the stretched 737's particularly the -9.One must assume that the extra stretched 7310 is no better.Would that not effect its usefulness on some of their routes? The -10 will have landing gear modifications allowing for a steeper rotation angle, whi...
