I think that UA would have ordered the A319neo, A320neo, and/or A321neo instead of the Boeing 737 MAX if the UA-CO merger hadn't taken place. Noooh, United ordered B737-900's before the merger.

Passengers just love it. Its the perfect balance. I just wish it had just a little bit more MTOW capability. This A/C is just begging to be turned into a MAX or NEO or whatever.
